Lets take a better look at the Moments

  • Wilson’s heroics help lift Seahawks to victory: Trailing 23-10 to the New England Patriots with a little more than nine minutes left to play, Seattle Seahawks rookie QB Russell Wilson engineered two touchdown drives in a comeback win. The second drive was capped in dramatic fashion as Wilson found WR Sidney Rice for a 46-yard game-winning touchdown with 1:18 remaining.

  • Stafford leads Lions’ late-game surge: With QB Matthew Stafford and WR Calvin Johnson largely held in check for three quarters, the host Philadelphia Eagles held a 10-point fourth-quarter lead on the Detroit Lions. Yet, Stafford led the Lions to 17 points in the last 10 minutes of regulation to force overtime, throwing for a score and running for another. In overtime, K Jason Hanson kicked the 45-yard winning field goal to bring the Lions to 2-3 on the season.

  • Down 24-0, Manning directs comeback win: QB Peyton Manning added another dramatic chapter to his storied NFL career in the Denver Broncos’ 35-24 win over the San Diego Chargers. In delivering the Broncos to victory, Manning overcame the largest deficit of his career to win. The Broncos were behind 24-0 at halftime, then scored 35 unanswered points in the second half to secure the win. Manning’s previous career-best comeback was in 2003 when his Indianapolis Colts came back from 21 points down to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 38-35, in overtime.

  • Go Broncos!
