With Christmas Day falling on Sunday for Week 16 of the NFL, we are getting only a few football games that are set to be played during the big day. So, below we share a list of the games set to kick off on Christmas Day.
As we mentioned previously, there was a loaded slate of games on Christmas Eve, with Christmas landing on the typical football Sunday. Because of that, we are only getting three games played on Dec. 25 while we open our presents from Santa. So, instead of spending time with family you don’t like, you can sit in your lazy boy and watch football like Thanksgiving.
Christmas Day NFL Games
Green Bay Packers (6-8) at Miami Dolphins (8-6) – on FOX, 1 p.m. ET
Our first game of Christmas day has plenty of playoff implications, with the Packers needing to win and some help to make it in, and the Dolphins, losers of three straight, are now the seventh seed hoping not to have a big collapse.
Denver Broncos (4-10) at Los Angeles Rams (4-10) – on CBS and NICK, 4:30 p.m. ET
In the match-up of teams that they expected to be better, we have the Broncos set to take on the Rams. Look, this game will probably be bad, but if you have anyone attempting to get you to help in the kitchen, just say, “The defending Super Bowl Champions” are playing and hope that works. But let’s be honest, it might be better to spend time with your family than Russell Wilson attempting to “cook.”
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-8) at Arizona Cardinals (4-10) – on NBC, 8:20 p.m. ET
Speaking of massive disappointment, we have Tom Brady and the 6-8 Bucs taking on a 4-10 Cardinals team with no hope of making the playoffs. Brady and company need a win here to stay ahead of the NFC South and win the division.
