NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT NOMINEES

Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions

Stafford's sneak caps epic Lions win: Matthew Stafford's plunge over the pile of linemen with 12 seconds remaining gave the Detroit Lions a thrilling 31-30 win over the Dallas Cowboys. The score capped an 80-yard drive that started with 1:02 remaining in the game and the Lions needing a touchdown for the win. Stafford nearly joined receiver Calvin Johnson in making history. Stafford had 488 yards passing and 329 of those went to Johnson, who came seven yards short of Willie "Flipper" Anderson's single-game receiving yardage record of 336 set in 1989.

Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos

Manning, Broncos rally with overwhelming fourth quarter: Peyton Manning overcame four turnovers, including one interception that put the Washington Redskins up 21-7. Despite facing a 21-14 deficit entering the fourth quarter, the Denver Broncos scored 31 points in the final period to post a 45-21 win. Manning had four touchdown passes in the game. The Broncos, meanwhile, now have scored 343 points, the most through the first eight games of the season in NFL history.

Earl Thomas, Seattle Seahawks

Defensive stand earns Seahawks a hard-fought win: Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas was a major catalyst in a goal-line stand in the game's final minute that delivered a grueling 14-9 win for the Seattle Seahawks over the St. Louis Rams. In a defensive struggle -- the Seahawks had as many first downs on offense as they had sacks on defense -- two touchdown passes from quarterback Russell Wilson to receiver Golden Tate provided the only scoring for a Seattle team that maintained the top record in the NFC.
