A lake-effect system dumped up to eight inches of snow on the New Era Field on Sunday, with the storm never relenting.
"This is going to be something I tell my grandkids about. ... It was a crazy day today."
Epic photo evidence of Thompson's point from photographer Bill Wippert:
"That was crazy man!" Kelvin Benjamin said of Thompson's catch. "That boy was blazing in the snow! Caught them with a jet ski, it was like he was on a jet ski man! I've never seen anybody run that fast in the snow, that was crazy!"
It was not McCoy's first time playing in a snowstorm. The running back's career-high 217-yard rushing day came in 2013 with the Philadelphia Eagles in a whiteout win over the Detroit Lions. McCoy had 156 yards rushing Sunday, including the game-winner. The back said this storm was harder to deal with than the 2013 version.
"This game was a lot harder than the Philadelphia game," he said. "I think the biggest reason for that was that the snow never stopped and the wind never stopped. In the first half of the Philly game, it was crazy, but it stopped at halftime. We could run the ball a lot better. Where in this game, it continued to snow and snow and snow.
"I think this is probably the best [snow game], or the worst one."
