A closer look at the nominees:

Wk 3: Romos Leads Cowboys to Match Franchise's Best Comeback:

The Dallas Cowboys erased a 21-0 deficit to defeat the St. Louis Rams, 34-31. The 21-point comeback matched the biggest in franchise history (1984 against the New Orleans Saints, 1999 against the Washington Redskins), but those previous comeback wins came in overtime. Quarterback TONY ROMO had two touchdown passes in the win, including a 68-yarder to wide receiver DEZ BRYANT that trimmed the Rams' lead to 21-17 right after halftime. A touchdown pass to wide receiver TERRANCE WILLIAMS put the Cowboys ahead in the fourth quarter and a pick-six for linebacker BRUCE CARTER gave Dallas the edge it needed to topple the Rams. Romo now has 21 comeback victories in the fourth quarter or overtime, which is a franchise best.

Wk 5: Browns Have Largest Comeback on Road in NFL History

Quarterback BRIAN HOYER's 6-yard touchdown pass to receiver TRAVIS BENJAMIN with a little more than a minute remaining in regulation gave the Browns a come-from-behind 29-28 win. The Browns rallied from a 25-point deficit, scoring 26 unanswered points -- including 16 in the fourth quarter -- to pull off the largest comeback victory by a road team in NFL history.

Wk 6: Rodgers Rallies Packers Past Dolphins With Late Touchdown

AARON RODGERS' 4-yard touchdown pass to tight end ANDREW QUARLESS with three seconds remaining gave the Green Bay Packers a 27-24 win over the Miami Dolphins. Rodgers overcame a fumble and a fourth-and-10 situation on the winning drive, which also included a faked intentional spike for a 12-yard gain to rookie receiver DAVANTE ADAMS that set up the winning score. The Packers twice gave up its lead on the Dolphins, and trailed 24-17 before Rodgers directed a 68-yard drive that resulted in a field goal. The Packers forced a punt and started at their own 40-yard line with 2:04 remaining en route to their third consecutive win.

Wk 7: Bills Win on Last-Second Orton-to-Watkins Score

Veteran quarterback KYLE ORTON connected with rookie receiver SAMMY WATKINS for a 2-yard touchdown with a second remaining to lift the Buffalo Bills to a 17-16 win over the Minnesota Vikings. That play capped a 15-play, 80-yard drive, during which Orton converted a fourth-and-20 play, a third-and-12 situation and set up the decisive score on a 28-yard pass to CHRIS HOGAN on a second-and-20 play.

Wk 16: Philip Rivers Keeps Chargers Playoff Hopes Alive

The San Diego Chargers rallied from a 21-point deficit to top the San Francisco 49ers in overtime, 38-35. Quarterback PHILIP RIVERS threw the game-tying 11-yard touchdown pass to receiver MALCOM FLOYD with 29 seconds left after completing a pair of fourth-and-long plays to keep the drive alive and force overtime. Kicker NICK NOVAK's 40-yard field goal in overtime assured that San Diego will enter the season's final week with a playoff berth within grasp.
