Polamalu's sack-strip is GMC Never Say Never Moment of Week 13

Steelers safety Troy Polamalu's sack-fumble leads to a game-winning score is the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week for games played on December 2-6, the NFL announced on Friday. The GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week is the best moment or play of the week that represents determination and perseverance.

In a battle for first place in the AFC North, the Baltimore Ravens led the Pittsburgh Steelers, 10-6, with just over three minutes remaining the fourth quarter. On second down, S Troy Polamalu came off the edge and sacked Ravens QB Joe Flacco, causing a fumble that was picked up by LB LaMarr Woodley and returned to the Ravens' 9 yard-line. QB Ben Roethlisberger then found RB Isaac Redman for a 9-yard TD to give the Steelers the lead en route to a 13-10 victory.

Troy Polamalu was selected from among three moments by voters on NFL.com/gmc. The other two moments were Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan directs a 10-play drive to produce the game's decisive points and Cowboys rookie linebacker Sean Lee makes a timely interception in an overtime victory.

After the regular season, fans will have a chance to determine the GMC Never Say Never Moment Of The Year from among the 17 weekly winners. Fans can vote for the winner on NFL.com/gmc throughout the month of January.

Still trailing later in the quarter, Falcons QB Matt Ryan engineered a 10-play, 67-yard drive, capped by a 9-yard TD pass to WR Michael Jenkins for the game's decisive points with 4:31 remaining in the game.
