-Week 10 Saints 31, Falcons 27
The Atlanta Falcons entered the Mercedes-Benz Superdome with an 8-0 record, hoping to keep their chances at a perfect season alive. Their arch-rival New Orleans Saints were battling a disappointing 3-5 record, hoping to spoil the Falcons' perfect season. A clutch goal-line stand in the last two minutes helped the Saints preserve a 31-27 victory, handing Atlanta their first loss of the season.
-Week 13 Chiefs 27, Panthers 21
The Kansas City Chiefs played their first game after linebacker Jovan Belcher tragically shot and killed his girlfriend before committing suicide in front of head coach Romeo Crennel and GM Scott Pioli. The Chiefs managed to overcome the tragedy and survived a last-second 53-yard completion from Cam Newton to Steve Smith to hold on for an emotional victory.
-Week 15 Cowboys 27, Steelers 24
Both teams were in desperate need of a win to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Cowboys and Steelers have two of the biggest fanbases in all of football and are also among the most successful and storied franchises as well. Both teams failed to capitalize on chances to get into field-goal range in the dying minutes, and a costly Ben Roethlisberger interception in overtime set up a short Dan Bailey field goal to give the Cowboys a much-needed win.
-Week 12 Ravens 16, Chargers 13 (OT)
The score was low, but the finish was unbelievable. The Ravens trailed by 10 late in the fourth, but a Dennis Pitta touchdown cut the Bolts' lead to 3. With under two minutes to play, the Ravens faced a 4th-and-29 situation from their own 37. Joe Flacco dumped off a short screen pass to Ray Rice, who somehow eluded multiple tackles and barely got the first down. Justin Tucker kicked a late 38-yard field goal and made one from the same distance in overtime to cap off an unlikely comeback.
-Week 12 Texans 34, Lions 31 (OT)
NFL fans were rewarded with a Thanksgiving spectacular between two high-powered offenses. The Lions had a 21-14 lead at halftime, and things only got better from there. The Lions added a field goal in the third, and the Texans scored 10 points to even the game at 24. Joique Bell and Arian Foster traded rushing scores to make it 31-all heading into overtime. After three turnovers and two missed field goals in overtime, Shayne Graham nearly made a 32-yard field goal to give the Texans a thrilling victory in the Motor City.
-Week 14 Redskins 31, Ravens 28 (OT)
Kirk Cousins came off the sidelines to take over for an injured RG3 and led Washington to a last-minute touchdown with a successful two-point conversion to send the game into overtime. Kai Forbath's 34-yard field goal in overtime gave the Redskins an unlikely comeback win, which helped them ride the momentum en route to an NFC East title.
-Super Bowl Ravens 34 49ers 31
Yes, it was the Super Bowl. But the game itself wasn't that exciting until the end. Baltimore jumped out to a 28-6 lead, but 17 unanswered points by San Fran put the game within reach. The Ravens added a field goal to make it 31-23. San Francisco gets a TD but fails the two-point conversion, and Baltimore kicks a field-goal to go up 34-29. The Ravens defense makes a huge goal-line stand, turning the ball over on downs. They concede a safety and punt to the 49ers, but Ted Ginn is tackled near mid-field, giving the Ravens another championship.
