GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week

Posted Oct 14, 2011

The Raiders emotional win to honor Al Davis is the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week.


Jason Campbell and the Raiders emotional win to honor Al Davis is the GMC NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE WEEK for games played on October 9-10, the NFL announced today. The GMC NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE WEEK is the best moment or play of the week that represents determination and perseverance. 

A day after the death of Al Davis, the Oakland Raiders provided a fitting tribute with a thrilling victory over the Houston Texans, and an emotional remembrance of the late owner. Trailing 17-15 at the start of the fourth quarter, QB Jason Campbell hit WR Chaz Schilens for an 18-yard scoring play to give Oakland a lead it would never relinquish. FS Michael Huff intercepted a last-second pass attempt in the end zone to seal the victory.

The Raiders performance was selected from among three moments by voters on NFL.com/gmc.  The other two moments were backup QB Charlie Whitehurst driving the Seattle Seahawks to an East Coast victory and Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow nearly pulling off a comeback win after leading two second-half touchdown drives.

After the regular season, fans will have a chance to determine the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year, from among the 17 weekly winners.  Fans can vote for the winner on NFL.com/gmc throughout the month of January.
