NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT NOMINEES
Mark Sanchez, New York Jets
Sanchez saves Jets' day, perhaps season: Facing a 24-21 deficit to the Buffalo Bills and a clock that was clicking away in the fourth quarter, Sanchez delivered a touchdown drive that ended a two-game losing streak and might have saved the New York Jets' dwindling playoff aspirations. Sanchez completed 7 of 9 passes on the winning drive, including a 16-yard touchdown strike to wide receiver Santonio Holmes. It was Sanchez's career-high fourth touchdown pass of the game.
Tim Tebow, Denver Broncos
Tebow Time strikes again for Broncos: The Denver Broncos were looking straight in the face of defeat when San Diego Chargers kicker Nick Novak lined up for a winning field goal in overtime. But Novak missed the 53-yarder, putting the game in Tebow's hands. After sending the game into OT by leading a tying drive late in regulation, Tebow did it again in the extra period, taking the Broncos down the field to set up kicker Matt Prater's game-winning field goal and helping the Broncos move above .500 for the first time this season.
Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys
Romo leads Cowboys to last-second win: On a day when he was sloppier than he'd been in months, and when his dependable defense was giving up long drives, Romo had one chance to make it pay off -- and he did. He and running back DeMarco Murray led an efficient final drive, setting up rookie kicker Dan Bailey for a 28-yard field goal as time expired to give the Cowboys a 20-19 victory over the Miami Dolphins.
