25. New York Giants (2011)
At one point during the 2011 season, the Giants lost four in a row. They needed to beat the rival Dallas Cowboys in the final week of the regular season to win the NFC East just to clinch a playoff spot. Apparently, all New York needed was to get into the playoffs, exhale and go on a Super Bowl-winning run. Back-to-back road wins at Green Bay and San Francisco set up another Super Bowl meeting with New England Patriots. The Giants trailed 17-9 in the third quarter, but scored 12 unanswered points, capped by Ahmad Bradshaw’s 6-yard touchdown run with 57 seconds left to take the lead.
