Five of the Most Memorable Blocks from the 2016 Season

Looking back at some of the blocks we won’t soon forget

Oftentimes, the best plays of a season, particularly offensively or on special teams, will have a key block that allowed the play to happen.

The players who execute these blocks will earn the respect of their teammates and coaches while watching film in the days that follow, but unless it's a flat-back on the front side of the play or something similar that's caught on the live broadcast and discussed, these plays can go largely unnoticed.

This list of plays below are ones that probably didn't go unnoticed, and while they don't necessarily carry the highest level of difficulty compared to others that took place over the course of the season, these were key plays in these games.

Some of the best blocks of the season could have come in the trenches on 6-yard runs in the midst of a drive that ended with a punt, and those plays weren't necessarily remembered, but that's not the case with these plays below.

Here are five of the most memorable blocks from the 2016 season:

5 – Albert Wilson gives Tyreek Hill the edge for a score

4 – Travis Kelce gives De'Anthony Thomas a lane down the field

3 – Mitch Schwartz shows a little bit of everything

2 – Laurent Duvernay-Tardif gets out in space and lays out a defensive back

1 – Travis Kelce handing out presents in the form of flat-backs on Christmas night
