Tell us which was more dramatic and exciting, the Patriots' or the Red Sox's comeback?

Two folk heroes of Boston sports delivered again in dramatic style on Sunday, back-to-back.

Tom Brady led the New England Patriots on a miraculous finishing drive winning the game over New Orleans with a touchdown pass with five seconds to go.

Hours later, after innings and innings of hapless-looking Red Sox hitters striking out, the team loaded the bases and Big Papi hit an 8th inning grand slam to tie the game vs Detroit in Game 2 of ALCS.

An inning later Johnny Gomes, emblematic of the Red Sox never-say-die attitude, scored the winning run on a Jarrod Saltalamacchia single to left.

So, we ask you two questions about this doubelheader of wins.

1.) Have you ever seen a bigger pair of unlikely comebacks?

2.) Which was more dramatic, the Patriots or the Red Sox comebacks?
