On Wednesday night, Demaryius Thomas’ 80-yard touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers won the “Best Moment” honor at the 2012 ESPY Awards in Los Angeles.
The winning moment came on the first play of overtime. Thomas caught a pass from quarterback Tim Tebow, stiff-armed Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor and sprinted upfield for an 80-yard, game-winning touchdown.
Tebow and Thomas both took the stage to accept the award. Other nominees included Bubba Watson’s win in a playoff in the Masters, the Tampa Bay Rays making the playoffs on the last day of the season and Derek Jeter’s quest for his 3,000th hit.
