Detroit quarterback noticed for his big game while leading the Lions to a win over Seattle on Sunday.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has been recognized for his big game on Sunday by being nominated for a pair of NFL weekly awards.

Stafford led the Lions to a much-needed victory with a game-winning touchdown pass to Titus Young in the final minute of the game to rally the Lions past the Seattle Seahawks for 28-24 win. For the game, Stafford threw for three touchdowns and ran for another while completing 34-of=49 passes for 352 yards.

Those numbers put Stafford in the mix for the FedEx Air Player of the Week award, nominated along with fellow quarterbacks Tom Brady of New England and Denver's Peyton Manning.

Brady guided the Patriots to a win by completing 23-of-35 passes for 304 yards and four touchdowns. Manning led the Broncos to a prime time win over the New Orleans Sainst by completing 22-of-30 passes for 305 yards and three touchdowns.

Stafford is also a nominee for the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week for his last second heroics to lead the Lions to a come-from-behind win. Chicago's Jay Cutler and Indianapolis rookie quarterback Andrew Luck are also nominated for the award for their part in fourth quarter comeback wins by their respective teams.

Fans can vote for both awards at NFL.com until Friday at 3 p.m. ET.
