The Miami Dolphins' defense tightens up in a key series is the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week for games played on September 19-20, the NFL announced Friday. The GMC GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week is the best moment or play of the week that represents determination and perseverance.
On the road, facing Minnesota Vikings QB Brett Favre and RB Adrian Peterson and backed up against their own goal line, the Dolphins' hopes for a win and a 2-0 start looked dim. However, Miami's defense led by LB Karlos Dansby stopped four Peterson runs and did not allow the ball to reach the end zone and Miami had a 14-10 win.
The Miami Dolphins defense was selected from among three moments by voters on NFL.com/gmc. The other two moments were the Houston Texans rallying from a 17-point deficit for their first franchise overtime win and Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas making an impact in his NFL debut.
After the regular season, fans will have a chance to determine the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year, from among the 17 weekly winners. Fans can vote for the winner on NFL.com/gmc throughout the month of January.
