Here is a close up of the five nominees:

Clay Matthews ends Saints comeback attempt


After a pass interference call in the end zone gave the New Orleans Saints one last untimed down at the 1-yard line to possibly force overtime on the defending Super Bowl champions, Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews led a surge through the Saints’ line of scrimmage to stuff rookie running back Mark Ingram and seal a Packers victory.

Resilient Romo leads Cowboys to OT victory


A week after falling to the New York Jets in a game in which he turned the ball over twice in the deciding fourth quarter, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was forced from the game against the San Francisco 49ers with a cracked rib and a punctured lung. But that didn’t stop him from returning and leading a gutsy comeback. Under his direction and leadership, the Cowboys pulled off an improbable 27-24 victory in overtime.

Raiders honor Al Davis with emotional win


A day after the death of Al Davis, the Oakland Raiders provided a fitting tribute with a thrilling victory over the Houston Texans, and an emotional remembrance of the late owner. Down 17-15 entering the fourth quarter, quarterback Jason Ca,pbell hit wide receiver Chaz Schilens for an 18-yard scoring play to give Oakland a lead it would never relinquish.

Flacco’s late-game heroics lead to sweep of Steelers


Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco struggled against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but with his team trailing 20-16 with a bit more than two minutes remaining in the game, Flacco put together a scoring drive during which he overcame a few ill-timed drops to deliver the game-winning touchdown strike to rookie wide receiver Torrey Smith, who three plays prior to the score had mishandled a potential touchdown pass. The Flacco-to-Smith connection with eight seconds left gave Baltimore a 23-20 win and completed a sweep of their bitter rivals.

Tebow Time strikes again


Late-game rallies and epic finishes are becoming the norm for quarterback Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. Once again in Week 14, the Broncos faced a fourth-quarter deficit, only to pull it all together late to earn a victory. Tebow was aided by kicker Matt Prater, who kicked a 59-yard field goal to force overtime and then connected on a 51-yard attempt to deliver Denver its sixth straight win and seventh in eight games since Tebow took over as the team's starting quarterback.

Go Broncos!
