When you are playing a video game and dominating the other team then suddenly the other team starts making a comeback very easily.

Originates from EA Sports where this phenomenon was first noticed.
I was winning 5-0 on Rocket League until the EA Catch-up Rule kicked in and the other team came back to tie in the final minutes.
