There were plenty of amazing moments in the first half of the 2011 NFL season, so there's plenty to look forward to in the season's second half. Here is a compilation of the greatest comebacks (by total points overcome to win) from the first half.

Just missing the cut:
» Week 1: Jets 27, Cowboys 24
» Week 2: Bills 38, Raiders 35
» Week 2: Buccaneers 24, Vikings 20
» Week 5: Chiefs 28, Colts 24

The Lions overcame a 20-0 deficit, then defeated the Vikings in overtime for the team's first win in Minnesota since 1997, snapping a 13-game skid.
The 49ers stormed back from a 23-3 deficit, victimizing Philadelphia's porous defense throughout the second-half surge to victory.
Ray Rice helped the Ravens overcome a 21-point deficit to the Cardinals for the biggest come-from-behind victory in Ravens history.
Ryan Fitzpatrick's clutch passing, a pick-six and a clutch kick helped the Bills overcome a 21-point hole to end a 15-game losing streak to the Patriots.
Behind a big effort from Calvin Johnson, the Lions rallied from 24 down to stun the Cowboys, who allowed another second-half lead slip away.
