NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT NOMINEES

Sebastian Janikowski, Oakland Raiders

Dan Orlovsky, Indianapolis Colts

Colts rally to beat Texans: When Houston took a 16-12 lead late in the fourth quarter, it appeared as if it would finally get its first-ever win in Indianapolis and move into position for a first-round playoff bye. Instead, the Colts drove down the field to collect their second consecutive win after opening the season 0-13. Orlovsky led a 12-play, 78-yard touchdown drive for the victory, highlighted by a 34-yard pass to wide receiver Reggie Wayne and capped by a touchdown by Wayne.

Tom Brady, New England Patriots

Patriots rally from 17 down: New England experienced a frustrating first half of football against the Miami Dolphins. Starting left tackle Matt Light got hurt in warmups and missed the game. Logan Mankins took his spot, but suffered a knee injury on the Patriots' second series. With their top two offensive linemen out, the Patriots struggled on offense as the Dolphins built a 17-0 halftime lead. The Patriots adjusted to their setbacks, scoring 27 unanswered points in the second half to win the game and clinch a first-round playoff bye.
