#3. January 10, 2015 New England Patriots 35 Baltimore Ravens 31
In one of the most thrilling games in Patriots playoff history, New England erased two 14-point deficits en route to their fourth consecutive AFC Championship game appearance.
This game featured everything, from comebacks, to hard hits, to big plays. But for New England fans, it will forever be cemented in Boston sports lore as the “Edelman to Amendola” game:
For the Patriots, the win also served as a slaying of the Boogeyman, of sorts. Baltimore had defeated the Patriots in two or the last three playoff meetings between the teams, both in Foxborough. It looked like more of the same after the Ravens went up 14-0 in the first quarter and then 28-14 in the second half, but Brady responded with a touchdown to Rob Gronkowski and the game was tied on Edelman’s now legendary pass.
After Baltimore went up 31-28 in the fourth quarter, Brady led another one of his trademark go-ahead drives with a 23 yard touchdown strike to Brandon LaFell down the left sideline.
The Patriots went on to defeat the Indianapolis Colts 45-7 in the AFC Championship the following week and then the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in Super Bowl XLIX for their fourth championship in franchise history.
