Kevin Kolb, Arizona Cardinals

Kolb, Cards pull off stunner in Foxborough: Entering Sunday, the New England Patriots had never lost a home opener at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots boasted a 10-0 record in such games since the stadium opened in 2002. However, Arizona Cardinals backup QB Kevin Kolb, playing in place of John Skelton, had other plans scoring two touchdowns for the Cardinals, who overcame a wild series of events in the game's final moments to secure an unexpected 20-18 win.

Michael Vick, Philadelphia Eagles

Vick leads Eagles to another late-game win: The Philadelphia Eagles are a rare team that is off to a 2-0 start. More amazingly, the Eagles are the first team in NFL history to do so with one-point victories in each of their first two games. As was the case in a Week 1 win over the Cleveland Browns, the Eagles overcame numerous turnovers to turn away the Baltimore Ravens after QB Michael Vick scored the winning touchdown with 1:55 left to earn a 24-23 victory.
