Mike Nugent, Cincinnati Bengals

Nugent's 47-yard field goal with 47 seconds remaining in the game lifted the Bengals 23-22 over the New York Jets on the road.

Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders

After throwing a 10-yard touchdown pass to Seth Roberts with less than a minute to go in the game, Carr then found Michael Crabtree in the end zone for a two-point conversion leading the Raiders to a 35-34 win over the New Orleans Saints.

Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks

With less than a minute to go in the game and the Seahawks trailing 10-6, Wilson hit Doug Baldwin with 31 seconds left for the game-winning touchdown catch. It was Wilson's 19th fourth quarter and overtime comeback.

Matt Prater, Detroit Lions

Matt Prater atoned for missing an extra point by kicking the go-ahead 43-yard field goal against the Indianapolis Colts leading the Lions to a 39-35 win.
