Coming through for your team in key moments is what defines a clutch performer. This season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Mike Evans, Tennessee Titans' Marcus Mariota, Pittsburgh Steelers' Antonio Brown, and the Oakland Raiders' Derek Carr and Khalil Mack have all earned nominations to be the Castrol EDGE Clutch Performer of the Year. Vote for who you think should take the honor.
CLUTCH PERFORMER OF THE YEAR NOMINEES
Mike Evans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Few Bucs players were as crucial to their success as Mike Evans. Evans' receptions and yards increase each year and he added another 12 touchdowns to his resume this season. He made some outstanding catches all year long, including a late fourth quarter TD which was ultimately the game-winner.
Marcus Mariota, Tennessee Titans
Maritoa's red zone efficiency is among the best in the league. His natural talent for putting together game-winning drives was on display all season, including a big win on the road against Detroit in Week 2. In that game, he threw the go-ahead touchdown on fourth down with just 1:19 left in the game.
Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers
To say Antonio Brown is a crucial piece to the Pittsburgh Steelers' offense is a drastic understatement. Brown managed his fourth consecutive season with more than 100 receptions and at least 1,200 yards. In Week 16, Brown caught a short pass in the final seconds of the game against the Baltimore Ravens to win the AFC North.
Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders
Khalil Mack, Oakland Raiders
Carr isn't the only Raider with late-game heroics. Khalil Mack was a beast for the Oakland Raiders' defense. This season, Mack had eight-consecutive games with at least one sack. In Week 13, he helped seal a win against the Buffalo Bills with a strip-sack and fumble recovery. It was the second week in row accomplishing that task.
