And the thing is... coming back from 17 down to start the 4th quarter is probably not statistically as great as those examples (who were like 95-99%).
Nonetheless, it's not +17 anymore. It's down to 7 points.
No team has ever done what either the Carindals or Rays did this year, in the time frame in which they did it. So yeah, every other team in history says hello.
But you are right, 17 back isn't the same. I am sure its been done more than twice.
