No, really.

Bucs rookie kicker Roberto Aguayo, who missed two field goals during the Bucs' Monday night game against Carolina, only to redeem himself with a 38-yard game-winner as time expired, has been voted as the NFL's Castrol Edge Clutch Performer of the Week.

Hitting a game-winning kick on the final play of a game is certainly clutch, even if that scenario was set up by you missing two kicks on the way to that tie score.

Aguayo somehow beat out Patriots QB Tom Brady, who threw for 406 yards and three touchdowns in his season debut, as well as Colts QB Andrew Luck, who threw a game-winning 35-yard touchdown pass with four minutes left. Lions safety Darius Slay, fairly clutch in getting the first interception of the season of Eagles rookie Carson Wentz to clinch a win for Detroit, was also a finalist, as was Falcons RB Tevin Coleman, who had 132 receiving yards and a touchdown in beating the Broncos.
