AARON RODGERS RALLIES PACKERS WITH LATE TOUCHDOWN VOTED 2014 GMC NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE YEAR
Winner Selected By Fan Vote on NFL.com/GMC
Green Bay Packers quarterback AARON RODGERS’ inspiring Week 6 performance is the 2014 GMC NEVER SAY NEVER MOMENT OF THE YEAR, the NFL announced today. This marks the second consecutive year Rodgers and the Packers take home the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year honor.
Rodgers’ Week 6 performance was selected from a group of five moments by voters on NFL.com/gmc. The five finalists were selected among 17 of the most memorable GMC Never Say Never Moments during the 2014 NFL season.
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 fake intentional spike for a 12-yard gain to rookie receiver DAVANTE ADAMS that set up the winning score. The Packers twice gave up their 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.
“GMC would like to congratulate Aaron Rodgers on winning this year’s GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year Award. His incredible play and leadership is the epitome of determination, perseverance and teamwork,” said Rich Latek, GMC marketing director. “These characteristics are demonstrated everyday by GMC’s engineers creating professional grade trucks, crossovers and SUVs for our customers.”
Each week during the regular season, the NFL selected three nominees for the GMC NEVER SAY NEVER Moments of the Week from which the fans voted for a winner on NFL.com/GMC. From those weekly winners, the five GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year finalists were selected (listed in the chart below).
