The Eagles' fantastic come-from-behind victory over the Giants, capped by DeSean Jackson's punt return, is among the nominees for Best Game.

Auburn over Alabama in the Iron Bowl, Butler over top-seed Pittsburgh in the NCAA Tournament and Oklahoma City's 3-overtime epic over Memphis in the NBA playoffs are the other nominees.

Roy Halladay's no-hitter in the playoffs over the Reds is among three choices for Best Moment. The others are Trevor Bayne's win at the Daytona 500 and the compelling story of the Fennville High School basketball team.
