NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT NOMINEES

Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

Rodgers sees his team to pivotal win: QB Aaron Rodgers provided the Green Bay Packers with a late-game spark in an important Week 4 matchup. After driving the Packers deep into New Orleans Saints territory midway through the third quarter, Rodgers was poked in the eye and sat out a play. The Packers' next snap resulted in a turnover, and the Saints seized momentum and a go-ahead score. Rodgers returned to the game, but threw an interception that resulted in another Saint's score. Down 27-21, Rodgers executed a seven-play, 66-yard touchdown drive that put the Packers on top for what would be the final 28-27 score, bringing the Packers to 2-2.

Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons

Ryan saves Falcons from first defeat: The Carolina Panthers gave the unbeaten Atlanta Falcons all they could handle, sacking QB Matt Ryan a career-high seven times. Trailing 28-27 with a minute remaining, the Falcons were pinned on their own one yard line courtesy of a Brad Nortman punt. On the first play from scrimmage, Ryan went deep for a 59-yard pass to WR Roddy White. That play set up K Matt Bryant's 40-yard winning field goal which improved Atlanta to 4-0.

Kevin Kolb, Arizona Cardinals

Kolb overcomes slow start to keep Cardinals undefeated: QB Kevin Kolb continues to overcome the odds. The Arizona Cardinals were losing at halftime 13-0 to the visiting Miami Dolphins and the second half did not get off to a great start as Kolb threw his second interception of the game followed by Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill hitting WR Brian Hartline for an 80-yard score. However, with help from an opportunistic defense, Kolb was in position to tie it late with a touchdown toss to WR Andre Roberts with 29 seconds left. Kolb then helped deliver victory in overtime by getting his team in line for K Jay Feely's 46-yard winner.
