The Lions rallied from a 10-point deficit and scored 17 points in the last 10 minutes of regulation on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, before a Jason Hanson field goal gave Detroit a 26-23 win. For his performance in that comeback, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is one of the nominees this week for the "Never Say Never Moment of the Week," an honor voted on by the fans and accorded on the winner weekly on the NFL Network.

Stafford threw one touchdown in the rally and ran for another, then completed both his passes in overtime for 33 yards to set up the winning field goal.

The other nominees for the "Never Say Never Moment" this week are Russell Wilson of the Seahawks, who brought his team back from a 13-point deficit to beat the Patriots on Sunday, and Peyton Manning, who led the Broncos to 35 unanswered second-half points in a 35-24 win over the Chargers Monday night.
