While the NFL season is nearing its end, the blunders are not getting any less frequent. In fact, in some cases, they’re getting even more glaring.

We’ve said this far too often in 2018, but Week 16 was rough on the officials. Their errors continue to mar otherwise very good games. But the week wasn’t all about the gaffes. Cody Kessler managed to fumble a ball out of thin air — literally.

Amazingly, though, other quarterbacks managed to trump him. The Los Angeles Chargers were done in when a veteran player made a rookie mistake. The Detroit Lions lost largely because they have no idea how to defend a Hail Mary.

Week 16 featured its share of head-scratching, embarrassing blunders around the NFL. These were the most notable among them.
