If a team pulls off the largest fourth-quarter comeback in NFL history in the preseason, does anyone notice? Well, you know one person that did.

Yes, people are still talking about Adrian Peterson, Greg Hardy, and Ray McDonald. But hey, we also get Chip Kelly exchanging pleasantries with reporters.
