It’s Christmas week and the NFL has a busy schedule for Week 16. We get a pair of games on Saturday and then a Christmas tripleheader to cap off a critical week in the playoff chase.
Week 16 opens with the Rams hosting the Saints on Thursday Night Football. Both teams are 7-7 and sitting in the thick of the wild card chase. The loser of this game is not eliminated from playoff contention, but it will hurt their chances of reaching the postseason.
The week continues with a pair of AFC matchups on Saturday. Three of the four teams are in the wild card race. Christmas Eve follows on Sunday and is highlighted by Lions-Vikings with the NFC North on the line, and a Super Bowl preview between the Cowboys and Dolphins.
The holiday weekend wraps with a Christmas tripleheader. The day is capped by another Super Bowl preview as the 49ers host the Ravens.
Here’s a look at the complete Week 16 TV schedule.
