Denver was nominated for a pair of yearly awards on Monday morning. First, quarterback Peyton Manning was announced as one of three finalists for the FedEx Air NFL Player of the Year Award.
Soon after, the Broncos were named one of five finalists for the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year for their historic comeback at San Diego in Week 6.
The comeback included two defensive touchdowns from cornerbacks Tony Carter and Chris Harris on a fumble return and interception return, respectively. It also featured a textbook touchdown connection from Peyton Manning — who overcame the largest deficit of his career — to wideout Brandon Stokley in the back right corner of the end zone, and a hard-fought Eric Decker touchdown reception in which he carried multiple tacklers across the goal line.
The five finalists were selected among 17 of the most memorable GMC Never Say Never Moments during the 2012 NFL season. Fans can vote for the winner by clicking here through 7:00 p.m. MST on Thursday, January 24.
The winner will be presented the award in New Orleans, the site of Super Bowl XLVII, at NFL Honors, a two-hour primetime awards special to air nationally on February 2, 7-9 p.m. MST on CBS.
