The Oakland Raiders have been nominated as one of the five finalists for the 2011 GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year. The GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Year is the best moment or play of the year that represents determination and perseverance.
On October 9, 2011, during Week 5 of regular season action and 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. Down 17-15 entering 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.
Fans can vote for one of these five moments on www.nfl.com/gmc through 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, January 26 to determine the*2011 GMC Never Say Moment of the Week.* One fan will be selected to win a 2012 GMC Sierra HD Denali.
The winner will be presented the 2011 GMC Never Say Moment of the Week award in Indianapolis, the site of Super Bowl XLVI, at NFL Honors, a two-hour primetime awards special to air nationally on February 4, 9-11 p.m. EST on NBC.
The five finalists were selected among 17 of the most memorable GMC Never Say Never Moments during the 2011 NFL season. Each week the NFL selected three nominees for the moments of the week in which the fans voted for the winner on NFL.com/GMC.
