NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT NOMINEES

Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys win thriller vs. Browns: After watching quarterback Tony Romo run for cover for much of the first half, the Dallas Cowboys went into halftime with a 13-0 deficit. Dallas emerged from intermission and mounted a second-half rally, scoring 17 unanswered points. However, Cleveland scored what appeared to be the winning score when rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden hit tight end Benjamin Watson for a touchdown with a 1:07 remaining. Romo, who endured a career-high seven sacks in the game, quickly marched the Cowboys in position for a game-tying field goal. In overtime, Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey made the winning field goal in a 23-20 victory that lifted Dallas' record to .500.

Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

Matt Schaub, Houston Texans

Texans survive OT scare vs. Jaguars: Andre Johnson and Matt Schaub helped save the Houston Texans from their second defeat. The Texans (8-1 entering Week 11) hosted the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-8 entering Sunday) and for much of the game were playing from behind against a suddenly explosive Chad Henne-led offense. Down 34-20 with 12:33 remaining, Schaub came alive for what wound up as a historic passing day. Schaub completed 17 consecutive passes to launch a comeback and bring the Texans into a tie to force overtime. On the Texans' third possession of overtime, Schaub hit Johnson for the 48-yard game winning touchdown. Schaub finished the game with 527 yards passing, tied for the second-highest single-game total in NFL history.
