Week 16 of the NFL season continues Saturday with an action-packed slate — and we’ve got you covered with all the must-see moments from around the league. As the playoff race continues to intensify, so does the winter weather, and frigid cold temperatures and gusty winds are expected to have a major impact on the 11-game Christmas Eve slate.
Eight games had kickoff temperatures below freezing, and four games have nighttime temperatures projected to be in the single digits or in the negatives, per FOX Sports Research and FOX Weather.
The Bills–Bears game could be the coldest in Soldier Field history in terms of wind chill, with a feels-like temperature anywhere between -9 to -20 degrees, while the Saints–Browns game is expected to have wind gusts up to 63 mph.
Here are the top plays from Saturday’s slate!
Just how they drew it up?
After going three-and-out on their opening drive, the Chiefs bounced back in a big way on their second possession when Patrick Mahomes hit Kadarius Toney for an 8-yard touchdown to give K.C. an early lead.
Extending the lead
With a 25-yard reception in the first quarter, Justin Jefferson (1,661 yards) set the new Vikings single-season receiving yard record, breaking Randy Moss’ 2003 record (1,623) after coming up just short last season (1,616).
Then, with momentum on their side, the Vikings were first on the board with a touchdown courtesy of T.J. Hockenson.
Sam Darnold launched one to wideout DJ Moore, who came up with a jaw-dropping 47-yard grab, followed by a touchdown on the next play. Just like that, Carolina pulled out to a 31-7 lead over Detroit midway through the third frame.
Finding a rhythm
Irwin added another score late in the second quarter to extend the Bengals’ lead to 22-0 at the break.
On the move
Closing the gap
Need for speed!
Buffalo kicked off the second-half scoring with a 33-yard touchdown rush from Devin Singletary, taking its first lead of the game, 14-10.
Change of direction
Air game strong
The turnover was a golden opportunity for Baltimore. Tyler Huntley — in for an injured Lamar Jackson — connected with Demarcus Robinson in the corner of the end zone for six. It was the first touchdown by a Ravens receiver since Week 3.
After trading field goals to close out the second quarter, the Saints got the third-quarter scoring started with an 8-yard touchdown rush up the middle from Taysom Hill. With that score, Hill set a new record for most rushing touchdowns by a non-running back in Saints history.
