GMC Never Say Never Moment: Brian Hoyer

He is No. 6 on the field but No. 1 in this week's GMC Never Say Never Moment. Cleveland quarterback Brian Hoyer pulled off the biggest road comeback in NFL history -- and the largest comeback ever for the Browns -- in Week 5 against the Titans. Check below to see what other dominant performances were nominated this time.


Brian Hoyer, Cleveland Browns

Browns have largest comeback on road in NFL history: Quarterback Brian Hoyer's 6-yard touchdown pass to receiver Travis Benjamin with a little more than a minute remaining in regulation gave the Browns a come-from-behind 29-28 win. The Browns rallied from a 25-point deficit, scoring 26 unanswered points -- including 16 in the fourth quarter -- to pull off the largest comeback victory by a road team in NFL history. The thrilling triumph was the Browns' first road win since September 22, 2013 at Minnesota.

Kyle Orton, Buffalo Bills

Bills rally from 14 down, win with last-second field goal: Quarterback Kyle Orton -- making his first start as Buffalo Bills quarterback -- guided a drive in the game's final seconds to set up the game-winning 58-yard field goal by Dan Carpenter in a 17-14 comeback win. The Bills got the ball at their own 40-yard line with just 21 seconds left. Rather than kneel on the ball and settle for overtime, the Bills attained enough yardage on a 20-yard completion to rookie receiver Sammy Watkins to get Carpenter into position for the winner. The Bills overcame a 14-point first-half deficit to earn the win.

Pierre Thomas, New Orleans Saints

Saints work overtime to get crucial win:New Orleans Saints running back Khiry Robinson scampered 18 yards for the winning touchdown in overtime in a 37-31 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Saints rallied from 11 points down in the fourth quarter to force the extra period. The Saints relied on veteran running back Pierre Thomas. Thomas' second touchdown of the game brought New Orleans to within five points of the Buccaneers. A safety on a Junior Galette sack of Mike Glennon in the end zone and a 44-yard field goal by Shayne Graham knotted up the score.
