With championships won by the Packers, Cardinals, Bruins and Mavericks, possible lockouts and cancellations from both the NBA and NFL and a rejuvenated national interest in baseball, 2011 has been a year to remember, and how else to best remember the year than with the best photos from the past twelve months?
With yet another seemingly miraculous comeback, the Tebow-lead Broncos topped the Bears, Eli Manning and the Giants pulled off a comeback of their own to top the Cowboys and keep their playoff hopes alive and the Packers ran circles around the Raiders to remain undefeated in week 14 of the NFL.
The Packers continued their undefeated run with a contested win against the Giants, the Cowboys employed some questionable kicking tactics to lose against the Cardinals in the last two seconds of the game and the Redskins continued to be the Redskins in Week 13 of the NFL.
