New England quarterback TOM BRADY's rally is the GMC NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE WEEK for games played on October 16 - 17, the NFL announced today. The GMC NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE WEEK is the best moment or play of the week that represents determination and perseverance.
A stingy Dallas Cowboys defense and a lackluster start held back Brady and the explosive New England offense for 57 and a half minutes. But with 2:31 left in the game and his team down by three, Brady led the Patriots on a 10-play, 80-yard drive that ended with an 8-yard touchdown pass to tight end AARON HERNANDEZ with 22 seconds to go. The score gave New England a 20-16 victory.
Brady's rally was selected from among three moments by voters on NFL.com/gmc. The other two moments were the Eagles' resilient win in a tough divisional match up with the Washington Redskins, and New York Giants running back AHMAD BRADSHAW's three-touchdown performance against the Buffalo Bills.
After the regular season, fans will have a chance to determine the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year, from among the 17 weekly winners. Fans can vote for the winner on NFL.com/gmc throughout the month of January.
