Red Sox and Patriots: Doubleheader of Stunning Comebacks
Tell us which was more dramatic and exciting, the Patriots' or the Red Sox's comeback?
Two folk heroes of Boston sports delivered again in dramatic style on Sunday, back-to-back.
Tom Brady led the New England Patriots on a miraculous finishing drive winning the game over New Orleans with a touchdown pass with five seconds to go.
Hours later, after innings and innings of hapless-looking Red Sox hitters striking out, the team loaded the bases and Big Papi hit an 8th inning grand slam to tie the game vs Detroit in Game 2 of ALCS.
An inning later Johnny Gomes, emblematic of the Red Sox never-say-die attitude, scored the winning run on a Jarrod Saltalamacchia single to left.
So, we ask you two questions about this doubelheader of wins.
1.) Have you ever seen a bigger pair of unlikely comebacks?
2.) Which was more dramatic, the Patriots or the Red Sox comebacks?
