INGLEWOOD, California (KABC) — The Rams took a big early lead against the Falcons on Sunday, but then had to rely on their defense to prevent Atlanta from making an epic comeback that sent some fans serious deja vu.

At one point, the Rams took a 28-3 lead over the Falcons. That score is, of course, infamous in NFL history as Atlanta’s lead over the Patriots in Super Bowl LI before New England’s Tom Brady led an astonishing fourth quarter comeback that ended in an overtime win.
