Top five comebacks from the season's first half

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.

   The 
  [Lions](/teams/detroitlions/profile?team=DET) overcame a 20-0 deficit, then defeated the 
  [Vikings](/teams/minnesotavikings/profile?team=MIN) in overtime for the team's first win in Minnesota since 1997, snapping a 13-game skid. 
   The 
  [49ers](/teams/sanfrancisco49ers/profile?team=SF) 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](/player/calvinjohnson/2495647/profile), the 
  [Lions](/teams/detroitlions/profile?team=DET) rallied from 24 down to stun the 
  [Cowboys](/teams/dallascowboys/profile?team=DAL), who allowed another second-half lead slip away.
