Week 15 of the 2022 NFL season separated the pretenders from the contenders with a handful of playoff clinching scenarios in play.

Some teams won their division in rather memorable fashion, namely the Minnesota Vikingsclaiming the NFC North crown with a historic comeback win over the Indianapolis Colts. Though less dramatic, the Kansas City Chiefs narrowly avoided an upset by the Houston Texans and clinched their seventh consecutive AFC West title.

Amid the action, teams' social media accounts supported their squads with entertaining post game graphics.

Here are the top NFL Twitter trolls from Week 15:

Philadelphia Eagles 25, Chicago Bears 20

Jalen Hurts and Justin Fields moved towards rushing quarterback history on Sunday. After a three-rushing touchdown game, Philly's signal caller is one shy of tying the NFL record for most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in a season. Meanwhile Fields joined Michael Vick and Lamar Jackson as the only QBs to run for at least 1,000 yards in a season.

However, the former's squad came out on top in a close matchup and acknowledged the win with a play on a childhood classic book series.

Jacksonville Jaguars 40, Dallas Cowboys 34

The Cowboys' five-game winning streak came to a screeching halt against Jacksonville. It was the Zay Jones show, as he hauled in three touchdown passes from Trevor Lawrence.

The Jags celebrated Rayshawn Jenkins' game-winning pick-6 that kept their postseason hopes alive.

Las Vegas Raiders 30, New England Patriots 24

This game was responsible for thewildest finish of the week as defensive end Chandler Jones snatchedJakobi Meyers'lateral attempt and scored the 48-yard walk-off touchdown.

The Raiders' social account couldn't resist a Tuck Rule reference after the win.

Cincinnati Bengals 34, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20

Ahead of the game, Bucs QB Tom Brady referred to the Bengals as having a "fairly tough defense" on his podcast, "Let's Go!"

Brady's description seemed to be over complementary at halftime with Tampa Bay holding a 17-3 lead, but the second half was another story. Cincy's defense forced Brady to turn the ball over on four consecutive drives, marking the first time in his career with multiple interceptions and lost fumbles in a game.

The Bengals social account poked fun at their slow first half once the comeback was completed.

New York Giants 20, Washington Commanders 12

Commanders QB Taylor Heinicke adds to his Air Jordan collection after a win by getting a pair that are the colors of the teams he beats.

But with the win, the Giants made sure to avoid expanding his footwear options.

New Orleans Saints 21, Atlanta Falcons 18

Somebody has to win the NFC South and Sunday's loss made that a bit more challenging for the Falcons.

New Orleans led early and never trailed, although Atlanta significantly closed the gap with a fourth quarter touchdown and two-point conversion.

After the win, the Saints' social media account responded to the Falcons' pregame troll.

Denver Broncos 24, Arizona Cardinals 15

The Broncos' season has not gone as planned, but they won their first game since Week 8 with backup QB Brett Rypien leading the way.

Their social account is happy to celebrate the little things.

Cleveland Browns 13, Baltimore Ravens 3

After winning six of their last seven games, the Ravens, sansLamar Jackson, fell out of first place in the AFC North with a loss to Cleveland.
