Rodgers wins Never Say Never Moment of Week

Posted Oct 5, 2012

Green Bay Packers quarterback AARON RODGERS was temporarily sidelined after being poked in the eye in Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints, yet he returned to play and executed a seven-play, 66-yard touchdown drive that put the Packers on top for what would be the final 28-27 score. His effort earned him the NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE WEEK for games played on September 27 - October 1, the NFL announced today. The NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE WEEK is the best moment or play of the week that represents determination and perseverance. 

Aaron Rodgers provided the Green Bay Packers with a late-game spark in an important Week 4 matchup.  After driving the Packers deep into New Orleans Saints territory midway through the third quarter, Rodgers was poked in the eye and sat out a play. The Packers' next snap resulted in a turnover, and the Saints seized momentum and a go-ahead score. Rodgers returned to the game, but threw an interception that resulted in another Saint’s score. Down 27-21, Rodgers executed a seven-play, 66-yard touchdown drive that put the Packers on top for what would be the final 28-27 score, bringing the Packers to a 2-2 record.

Rodgers’ pivotal win was selected from among three moments by voters on NFL.com.  The other two moments were Atlanta Falcons QB MATT RYAN saves Falcons from first defeat and Arizona Cardinals QB KEVIN KOLB overcomes slow start to keep Cardinals undefeated.
