the only thing (not including Snow Game) that comes close to me is the come from behind overtime win against the Vikings in '94. Crazy home game and people were losing their minds in a similar fashion.
"But Bledsoe did much better in the second half, completing 37 of 53 passes for 354 yards, as the Patriots switched to a no-huddle offense for almost the entire half.
The Vikings, who were tied for third in the NFL with 27 sacks, didn't get to Bledsoe once.
He broke NFL records of 68 passes by Houston's George Blanda on Nov. 1, 1964, and 42 completions by the New York Jets' Richard Todd on Sept. 21, 1980.
At halftime, the Patriots were trailing, 20-3, and had gone 10 quarters without a touchdown.
Minnesota still led, 20-10, with less than three minutes to play in the fourth quarter.
Then Bledsoe passed five yards to Leroy Thompson for a touchdown with 2:21 to play. The Vikings couldn't get a first down on their next series, and Bledsoe led the Patriots from their 39-yard line to Matt Bahr's tying 23-yard field goal with 14 seconds remaining."
