Vote Cousins-Led Comeback For NFL Award


The NFL announced this morning that the Kirk Cousins-led overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens is nominated for the NFL Never Say Die Moment of the Week.

Cousins entered the game with 1:42 left in the fourth quarter and his team down by eight points at the Washington 40-yard line.  On his first snap, he converted the first down with a pass interference penalty that resulted in an incomplete pass to Pierre Garcon.

Six plays later, Cousins completed an 11-yard pass to Garcon in the end zone, before running a quarterback draw for the two-point conversion. 

The Redskins (6-6) forced overtime against the Ravens (9-3) and marched into field goal range on the second possession of overtime.  Cousins was a perfect two-for-two with a touchdown on the day, as the Redskins won it on a Kai Forbath field goal.

The fourth-quarter drive and overtime secured the Redskins' fourth-consecutive victory and put the Redskins' over .500 for the first time since Week 1.

Fans may vote for Cousins and Co. at beginning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday morning, running through 3 p.m. on Friday afternoon.  The winner will be announced Friday during NFL Network's "Around the League" show and then posted on

After the regular season, fans will have a chance to determine the Never Say Never Moment of the Year, from among the 17 weekly winners.  Fans can vote for the winner and enter for a chance to win a trip to Super Bowl XLVII on throughout the month of January.
