Over at NFL.com, there are five nominees for the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year, and the Cleveland Browns' historic comeback against the Tennessee Titans is one of the candidates.

Hoyer Moment

You can vote for QB Brian Hoyer as many times as you wish; the Browns' competition includes:

  • The Cowboys rallied from a 21-0 deficit to beat the Rams in overtime.
  • The Packers used a fake spike and a game-winning touchdown pass to beat the Dolphins at the last second.
  • The Bills beat the Vikings on the final play of the game with a touchdown pass to WR Sammy Watkins.
  • The Chargers rallied from 21 points down in Week 16 to beat the 49ers in overtime, keeping their playoff hopes alive.

The Browns were down 28-3 before coming away with a 29-28 victory. The 25 point deficit is the largest road comeback in NFL history. While I think Rivers' comeback in Week 16 was impressive, I think the record breakers are the most deserving of the winning vote. Several members of the Browns reflected on the historic victory, and if you recall, Hoyer and WR Travis Benjamin had their jerseys displayed in the Canton Hall of Fame. None of the other candidates for this award can say that.

Objectively, do you think the Browns' comeback is the most deserving, at least compared to the other four candidates?
