Bearcats in the NFL: Week 16

A touchdown drought ended for Travis Kelce.

NFL: Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Travis Kelce, TE, Kansas City Chiefs

Kelce exploded this weekend against perhaps the league’s most dominant defense. Kelce was a fantasy owner’s dream, hauling in 11 catches for 160 yards while finally snapping his touchdown drought by finding the end zone once. All this was done as the Chiefs secured their AFC playoff spot.

Derek Wolfe, DL, Denver Broncos

Wolfe was originally ruled out of the Broncos matchup with the Chiefs due to a neck injury, however he surprised many by suiting up in a limited role. Wolfe was held to two tackles.

Connor Barwin, DL, Philadelphia Eagles

Connor Barwin had the coming out party in December that Eagles fans have been waiting for. Barwin mashed his combined tackles totals from the previous three games, recording five. This is something that Barwin and Philadelphia’s front office hope Connor can carry over into next season.

Jason Kelce, OL, Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles offense played a huge role in the upset win over the playoff bound New York Giants. Football fans know that no offense can truly get rolling without solid offensive line play. Kelce, who played on 100 percent of the offensive snaps for the Eagles, led an offensive line that did what it needed to do to bring the win back to Philadelphia.

Trent Cole, LB, Indianapolis Colts

Despite seeing his snap count jump below 50 percent this weekend, Cole put up another solid performance for the Colts. He recorded four solo tackles and seemed to make the most every time he was on the field.

Ricardo Matthews, DL, Pittsburgh Steelers

Matthews saw his snap count take a considerable drop in the Steelers Christmas Day matchup with the division rival Baltimore Ravens. Matthews only saw 27 percent of the defensive snaps (55% last week) in the Steelers last second victory. In his limited role, Ricardo recorded a single tackle.

Chris Moore, WR, Baltimore Ravens

Moore was once again not used on offense for the Ravens, he did however see action on 18 snaps on various special teams units (58 percent).

Kevin Huber, P, Cincinnati Bengals

Unfortunately for the Bengals, Huber punted eight times in their matchup with the Texans, a large reason why they were only capable of mustering 10 points. Huber averaged 45.8 yards per kick and pinned the Texans back in behind their own 20 on three occasions.

Johnny Holton, WR, Oakland Raiders

Despite it not being significant, Holton saw three offensive snaps in the Raiders victory over the Colts. As per usual, Holton was a contributor on special teams as well, playing eight snaps (30 percent).

Mike Windt, LS, San Diego Chargers

Winds played 10 special teams snaps (34 percent) while the Chargers handed the Browns their first win of the Year.
