Vote for Rodgers-to-Cobb for Never Say Never Moment of Year

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 20, 2014 – 3:00 pm

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers’ 48-yard TD pass to WR Randall Cobb on fourth down with 38 seconds left in Chicago is one of the finalists for the NFL’s Never Say Never Moment of the Year.

The play was just voted the winner of the Never Say Never Moment of the Week for Week 17.

The other finalists are as follows:

Week 5 – Manning, Thomas, Broncos outlast Cowboys in thrilling finish

Week 10 – Newton, Kuechly, Panthers rally to prevail in defensive struggle

Week 12 – Brady, Patriots overcome 24-point deficit, win in OT

Week 14 – Ravens survive frantic final minutes vs. Vikings

Voting will be open through Thursday, Jan. 23. Vote by clicking here.

The winner will be announced at the third annual “NFL Honors” show, a two-hour prime-time special on FOX on Feb. 1, the night before Super Bowl XLVIII.

Here is the information on each nominee, as supplied by the NFL through a press release:

Wk 5: Manning, Thomas, Broncos outlast Cowboys in thrilling finish:

Peyton Manning helped the Denver Broncos overcome a 14-0 deficit in the first quarter, and again by a touchdown in the fourth quarter, to earn a thrilling 51-48 win on the road against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5. In the game, Manning threw four touchdown passes, two to wide receiver Julius Thomas, and added another on a run. During the record-setting game, the Broncos and Cowboys combined for 1,039 yards of total offense which is tied for the second-highest scoring game since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970. Linebacker Danny Trevathan’s interception of a Tony Romo pass set up Matt Prater’s game-winning field goal and assured that the Broncos would remain unbeaten.

Wk 10: Panthers rally to prevail in defensive struggle:

Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers survived a defensive struggle in San Francisco to collect their fifth consecutive win. The Panthers rallied from nine down to earn a huge 10-9 road win against the San Francisco 49ers. Running back DeAngelo Williams’ touchdown brought Carolina to within 9-7 of San Francisco, and Graham Gano’s 53-yard field goal in the fourth quarter put the Panthers ahead. However, it was the stingy Panthers defense led by linebacker Luke Kuechly, who finished the game with 11 tackles and a sack, that made sure the narrow one-point lead held up. The Panthers twice shut down Colin Kaepernick on last-ditch, late-game drives, including an interception from Drayton Florence to seal the win.

Wk 12: Brady, Patriots overcome 24-point deficit, win in OT:

Down 24-0 at halftime, quarterback Tom Brady guided a second-half comeback that forced overtime, where the New England Patriots eventually won, 34-31. The Patriots lost fumbles on their first three possessions as the Broncos built a 24-0 lead in the first half. However, the Patriots rallied, scoring on their first five possessions of the second half to erase the deficit. After Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw a touchdown pass to receiver Demaryius Thomas late in the fourth quarter to tie the score and ultimately force overtime, the Patriots took advantage of a fortunate bounce of a punt that hit a Broncos player and was recovered by Nate Ebner at the Broncos’ 13-yard line. Kicker Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 31-yard field goal to give the Patriots a 34-31 overtime win.

Wk 14: Ravens survive frantic final minutes vs. Vikings:

Quarterback Joe Flacco threw a touchdown pass to rookie receiver Marlon Brown with four seconds left to cap a frenzied final two minutes and lift the Baltimore Ravens to a thrilling 29-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Despite playing in a snowstorm, the Ravens and Vikings combined for five touchdowns in the game’s final 125 seconds. The Flacco-to-Brown score finished a five-play, 80-yard drive that eclipsed all but four of the game’s final 45 seconds. The Ravens’ rally also included a 77-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Jacoby Jones.

Wk 17: Rodgers’ fourth-down TD puts Packers in playoffs:

Facing a fourth-and-8 at the Chicago Bears’ 48-yard line with 38 seconds remaining, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hit receiver Randall Cobb for a 48-yard touchdown play that helped the Packers capture the NFC North crown. Rodgers had missed seven games with a broken collarbone and Cobb had missed the previous 10 games with a knee injury.

    and we cannot sell out.

    i guess when the refs give a team the game, it turns EVERYONE off to the sport. i hope the NFL is watching this. for my part, bs calls that break of the higher tv ratings are just about getting to the point where i stop watching the sport altogether.

    This simply has to win. After the grind of a season the Pack went through, it was fitting that we put at all behind us and advance on to the playoffs on a 4th down TD from our 2 returning stars. You can’t write this stuff folks!

    Shouldn’t a never say die award go to one of the two teams in the SB? Otherwise at some point they did say die. Actually they said, “BRRRRRrr it is cold lets get all dressed up like sick old women and lose another one to the 49ers.” But I am told they put in a good effort.

    Of all these, Rodgers to Cobb is really the only choice. If that play failed… end of the year, no other play on the list meant that.

    I want to reach out to all the die-hard and true packers fans and come together to stamp our vicious rookie running back, Eddie lacy with a nickname…. I think he should be “the green hulk” or “the hulk”, because that boy just does not go down! lets come together packer nation and stamp our awesome running back with this nickname. “Go Pack Go”.
