I came across some more non-playoff games while trying to find out if it has ever happened in a playoff game (I am 99.9% certain it has not, but I have no citation): The first time it happened was in Week 15 of 2002, when the Vikings were successful on a 2-point conversion (despite Daunte Culpepper fumbling the snap) with 5 seconds left against the Saints ...

One game springs to mind: Tennessee Titans 19 - 20 LA Chargers, Wembley Stadium, 2018-10-21 The Titans were trailing by 7 going into the 2 minute warning. With 31 seconds left, Marcus Mariota found TE Luke Stocker for a 1 yard TD. The Titans head coach Mike Vrabel elected to go for a two-point try to win the game, that subsequently failed.

Since this is an old question and since this does not currently have a right answer I will summarize this.

It depends what you mean by the largest blown lead. I watched the Buffalo game vs the Pats and the Pats were down 21 but Buffalo scored 10 before half and I don't think 21-10 comeback with momentum is an incredible comeback. The Bills threw two quick INTs to start out the game but by the half they were down but there was no feeling the game was over. ...

Upon further research, I found the following source (though it is from 2010) that states: "Clubs participating in the playoffs are permitted to sign free agents throughout the postseason, but are limited to a total of four free agent signings, including players on other clubs' Practice Squads, during the period that begins at 4 p.m., New York time, on the ...
