Rodgers-to-Cobb wins Never Say Never Moment of Year

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers’ 48-yard TD pass to WR Randall Cobb on fourth-and-8 in the final minute of the Week 17 showdown at Soldier Field won the online voting for the NFL’s Never Say Never Moment of the Year.

The award was announced on Saturday night at the third annual “NFL Honors” show in New York City.

The touchdown, with 38 seconds left in the game, gave the Packers a 33-28 victory over the Bears for their third straight NFC North title. The division crown and an NFC playoff spot were on the line in the game.

The Packers trailed, 28-27, when they took possession on their own 13-yard line with 6:24 left. Converting a pair of fourth downs on a short run by FB John Kuhn and a pass to WR Jordy Nelson, the Packers faced another fourth down at the Chicago 48-yard line.

Rodgers, playing in his first game back from a broken collarbone that sidelined him for seven contests, and Cobb, also in his first game back from a leg injury that cost him 10 games, hooked up for the game-winner.

The Bears brought a blitz, Kuhn threw a key block on Chicago DE Julius Peppers that allowed Rodgers to get out of the pocket, and Cobb was running free down the field waving his hand. Rodgers’ pass settled into his arms at the 10-yard line and he dove over the goal line, setting off a wild celebration on the field and on the Packers sideline.
