A closer look at the nominees:
Stafford returns to lead Lions’ fourth-quarter comeback:In his first game since Week 2, Detroit Lions QB MATTHEW STAFFORD was determined to show he had fully recovered from a shoulder injury. Did he ever. Not missing a beat, the No. 1 pick in the 2009 draft refused to let the Lions surrender, bringing them back from two fourth-quarter deficits with a pair of touchdown passes to Lions WR CALVIN JOHNSON, the final coming on fourth down with 3:12 to go.
Rookie Blount pivotal in Bucs’ fifth straight road win:
Trailing 35-31, Tampa Bay turned to an unlikely hero -- undrafted rookie RB LeGARRETTE BLOUNT, who wanted another shot after his fumble at the end of the third quarter was returned by Arizona for a touchdown. Blount got it and stepped on the gas, rushing for 120 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winner, in the Bucs’ fifth straight road victory.
Chiefs’ Succop finds redemption with winning field goal:
After getting passed over on a field goal try earlier in the game and then missing a 39-yard attempt in overtime, Kansas City Chiefs K RYAN SUCCOP never gave up hope. Neither did his coach, who sent him out there again in overtime for another game-winning attempt, and this time Succop delivered with a 35-yarder to give the Chiefs a 13-10 win over Buffalo.
