Atlanta Falcons defensive end Brooks Reed was nominated for the Castrol Clutch Performer of Week 1 after his five-tackle, two-sack performance against the Chicago Bears in a 23-17 win Sunday.

Reed's biggest moment on Sunday was when he sacked Bears quarterback Mike Glennon on fourth-and-goal with eight seconds left in the game as the Bears were attempting to score a touchdown that would tie the game 23-23 without the extra point.

Reed is nominated alongside Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, Jacksonville Jaguars defensive lineman Calais Campbell and Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff.

 

Fans can vote on one of the five moments on the NFL.com through Friday at 3 p.m. ET. The winner will be announced on Friday on the NFL Network's NFL Total Access and then posted on NFL.com.
