There can be no fourth-quarter comeback victories in football without a team first falling behind.
That partly explains why Drew Brees (three), Tom Brady (one) and Aaron Rodgers (zero) have combined for fewer of them than either Alex Smith (five) or John Skelton (four). Still, tis better to come back and win than to lose quietly.
The chart, built from information available at Pro Football Reference, ranks quarterbacks by fourth-quarter comeback victories this season. Smith and the New York Giants' Eli Manning lead the NFL with four apiece on the road, including one sustained by Smith's 41-yard pass to Michael Crabtree at Seattle in Week 16.
