Stafford's return is GMC Never Say Never Moment of Week 8

Quarterback Matthew Stafford's return to lead Lions' fourth-quarter comeback is the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week for games played on October 31-November 1. The GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week is the best moment or play of the week that represents determination and perseverance.

In his first game since Week 2, Stafford was determined to show he had fully recovered from a shoulder injury. Did he ever. Not missing a beat, the No. 1 pick in the 2009 draft refused to let the Lions surrender, bringing them back from two fourth-quarter deficits with a pair of touchdown passes to Lions WR Calvin Johnson, the final TD coming on fourth down with 3:12 to go.

Stafford was selected from among three moments by voters on NFL.com/gmc. The other two moments were Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie RB LeGarrette Blount's pivotal role in the Buccaneers' fifth consecutive road win and Kansas City Chiefs K Ryan Succop finding redemption with a winning field goal.

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.

Out of action since Week 2 with a shoulder injury, Matthew Stafford was determined to show he had fully recovered. Did he ever. Not missing a beat, the No. 1 pick in the 2009 draft refused to let the Lions surrender, bringing them back from two fourth-quarter deficits with a pair of touchdown passes to Calvin Johnson, the final coming on fourth down with 3:12 to go.

  Rookie Blount pivotal in Bucs' fifth straight road win 

Trailing 35-31, Tampa Bay turned to an unlikely hero -- undrafted rookie LeGarrette Blount, who wanted another shot after his fumble at the end of the third quarter was returned by Arizona for a touchdown. Blount got it and stepped on the gas, rushing for 120 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winner, in the Bucs' fifth straight road victory.

Chiefs' Succop finds redemption with winning field goal

After getting passed over on a field goal try earlier in the game and then missing a 39-yard attempt in overtime, Ryan Succop never gave up hope. Neither did his coach, who sent him out there again in overtime for another game-winning attempt, and this time Succop delivered with a 35-yarder to give the Chiefs a 13-10 win over Buffalo.
