If there's one ever-lasting image from the Green Bay Packers' 2013 season, it's the 48-yard touchdown pass Aaron Rodgers threw to Randall Cobb in the final minute of the regular-season finale against the Chicago Bears.

As it turned out, it was one of the most lasting images from the entire NFL season.

The play was named the NFL's Never Say Never Moment of the Year on Saturday at the NFL Honors program in New York.

The play, which was No. 2 on our list of the top-10 plays that shaped the Packers' season, was picked from 17 weekly winners in the regular season.

What made the play so memorable was that it came on fourth-and-8 in the final minute of a game that would decide the NFC North title.

“It's two guys making a great, great play that'll be running on the highlights now for the rest of my time on this earth,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said after that game.
