NFL Week 16 grades: Tom Brady’s Buccaneers get a ‘C’ for Christmas win; Packers earn ‘B+’ for upsetting Dolphins

The NFL officially turned into a winter wonderland in Week 16.

The league had eight games that started on Saturday with a sub-zero temperature, a record for a single day. Things were so cold in Nashville that the Texans-Titans game was actually delayed an hour in Tennessee due to rolling blackouts that were ordered due to the extreme cold.

Panthers lead franchise history (20 on kickoff), which was a 37–23 victory over the Lions. The Ravens also had their coldest home game in franchise history (17 degrees), a 17–9 win over the Falcons. Not to be outdone, the Seahawks faced a temperature (12 degrees) which was the coldest in franchise history for any regular season game.

The one game where the weather was not an issue was in Minnesota, where the Vikings beat the Giants 27–24 on Greg Joseph’s game-winning field goal from 61 yards out. The kick was the fifth longest game-winning field goal in NFL history. The Vikings are now 11–0 in one-score games this season, the most one-score wins in a single season in NFL history.

So what kind of grade do you get for winning on a 61-yard field goal? Let’s go to the Week 16 grades and find out.

On Christmas Sunday, the elements were much better as we saw another Tom Brady return to the desert, Aaron Rodgers keeping the Packers alive in Miami and Baker Mayfield scoring 50 points in LA.
