For some NFL teams with a large fanbase (Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, Denver Broncos, among others), 2017 has not been a fun season to watch. However, the lack of success by these teams has lead to some of the most entertaining reactions and posts on social media of the year.

After everything that went on in the league during Week 16, what were some of the best (or worst) posts on Twitter from those who cover and follow the NFL?

Marshon Lattimore catches a football with his backside

As the Atlanta Falcons were attempting to score some points before heading into halftime of their matchup with the New Orleans Saints, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan threw a pass over the middle of the field that was tipped by one of his receivers.

But instead of the football just landing on the ground like what normally happens, the ball ended up falling on the lower cheeks of Saints corner Marshon Lattimore, allowing him to turn the play into an interception.

Jimmy Garoppolo can’t stop winning

Since becoming the San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback in Week 13, Jimmy Garoppolo has led the team to four straight wins. The 49ers’ hopes of tanking and getting a top three draft pick may be out the door now, but it looks like they have found themselves a franchise quarterback.

Dallas Cowboys miss the playoffs

Following their loss to the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys were officially eliminated from making this year’s NFC playoff bracket. It is the second time in the last three seasons the Cowboys are missing out on the playoffs and a few people might have had a thing or two to say about it.

Andy Reid dresses up as Santa Claus

After his Kansas City Chiefs celebrated their second-straight AFC West title by defeating the Miami Dolphins last Sunday, head coach Andy Reid looked a little more jolly than usual during his postgame presser. His players definitely got a kick out of it.

Kelvin Benjamin gets touchdown catch overturned

As the Buffalo Bills were attempting to win their road matchup against the mighty New England Patriots, Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin thought he had a touchdown catch to put the team up heading into the half.

However, after the officials looked at the replay, it was determined to be an incomplete pass. Once again, the refs proved that absolutely no one knows what a catch is in the NFL.
