A closer look at the nominees:
- Brady, Patriots rally to beat Cowboys:A lackluster start and a stingy Dallas Cowboys defense kept quarterback TOM BRADY and the explosive New England offense at bay for 57 and a half minutes. But with 2:31 left in the game and his team down by three, Brady marched the Patriots on a 10-play, 80-yard drive that ended with an 8-yard touchdown pass to tight end AARON HERNANDEZ with 22 seconds to go, giving New England a 20-16 victory.
- Eagles prevail in divisional game:Riding a four-game losing streak, the Philadelphia Eagles faced the first-place and well-rested Washington Redskins, who were coming off a bye week. But quarterback MICHAEL VICK, running back LE SEAN MC COY and strong safety KURT COLEMAN rose to the occasion. Vick threw for 237 yards and a touchdown, McCoy rushed for 126 yards and a score and Coleman had three interceptions in a 20-13 victory.
- Behind Bradshaw, Giants hold off Bills:Giants running back AHMAD BRADSHAWran for 104 yards and a career-best three touchdowns, but it was his efforts on New York's final drive that propelled the team to victory. Before Bradshaw took center stage, cornerback COREY WEBSTER prevented the Buffalo Bills from taking the lead with an interception at the 4-yard line. Bradshaw then rushed five times for 47 yards to set up kicker LAWRENCE TYNES'* *game-winning field goal.
