NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT NOMINEES
Jason Campbell, Oakland Raiders
Raiders honor Al Davis with emotional win: A day after the death of Al Davis, the Raiders provided a fitting tribute with a thrilling victory over the Houston Texans, and an emotional remembrance of the late owner. Down 17-15 entering the fourth quarter, QB Jason Campbell hit WR Chaz Schilens for an 18-yard scoring play to give Oakland a lead it would never relinquish.
Charlie Whitehurst, Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks end eight-game East Coast skid: Entering Sunday, the Seahawks had lost their previous five road games by 14 or more points, and had lost eight consecutive games on the East Coast. Things looked bleak when starting QB Tarvaris Jackson left the game with an injury in the third quarter. But backup Charlie Whitehurst came in and helped the Seahawks score 20 fourth-quarter points en route to a 36-25 road upset of the Giants.
Tim Tebow, Denver Broncos
Tebow nearly leads rousing rally: Down 23-10 to the San Diego Chargers at halftime, Denver Broncos coach John Fox decided to make a change at quarterback, benching starter Kyle Orton and replacing him with Tim Tebow. Tebow led a second-half surge, accounting for two touchdowns and nearly throwing a winning TD on the game's final play. He finished with a 12-yard rushing touchdown and a 28-yard scoring pass to RB Knowshon Moreno, likely earning him the starting role in the process.
