NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT NOMINEES
Richard Sherman, Seattle Seahawks - Sherman's late pick helps keep Seahawks unbeaten: Richard Sherman's 58-yard interception return for a touchdown completed a Seattle Seahawks rally from a 20-3 deficit to a 20-20 late-game tie that forced overtime. In the extra period, Steven Hauschka kicked a 45-yard field goal to give the Seahawks a 23-20 win over the Houston Texans. Sherman's pick six came moments after an epic 98-yard drive drew the Seahawks to within a touchdown. The drive included a successful fourth-down scramble by quarterback Russell Wilson that set up a touchdown by Marshawn Lynch. The come-from-behind win gave Seattle its first 4-0 start in franchise history.
Aqib Talib, New England Patriots - Patriots stay unbeaten as Talib halts Falcons' frenzied rally: The New England Patriots improved to 4-0, but had to hold off a frenzied fourth-quarter rally from the Atlanta Falcons. Encouraged by a successful onside kick, the Falcons scored 10 unanswered points to get within a touchdown. A lost fumble by Tom Brady gave the Falcons one last chance at evening the score. However, Aqib Talib -- who had a big performance Sunday night that included an interception -- deflected Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan's fourth-and-7 pass attempt in the end zone to secure a 30-23 win.
Patrick Peterson, Arizona Cardinals - Peterson's two interceptions key Cardinals comeback: For most of Sunday's game against the host Tampa Bay Buccaneers, prospects for victory appeared bleak for the Arizona Cardinals. Yet a handful of key plays late helped the Cardinals overcome a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit. Patrick Peterson had two interceptions to set up the win. His first pick was followed by a 13-yard touchdown from Carson Palmer to Larry Fitzgerald. The second interception sealed the 13-10 win.
