The NFL has a unique schedule for Week 16 with Christmas coming up on Monday. All 32 teams are playing at some point since bye weeks are all behind us and the race for the playoffs is on. There are nine games on the main slate on Sunday afternoon with seven other games spread throughout the week.

The week starts with a Thursday Night Football matchup between the Saints and the Rams in Los Angeles. From the AFC North, the Bengals and Steelers are each playing for the second straight Saturday as they go head-to-head in Pittsburgh. The Bills visit the Chargers in the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader. Six games kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET with three games in the later window joining to complete the main slate. On Christmas Eve, the Patriots visit the Broncos for Sunday Night Football. On Monday, there’s a Christmas Day triple-header similar to the schedule on Thanksgiving. The Raiders and Chiefs get things started followed by another divisional matchup between the Giants and the Eagles in the afternoon. The final game of the week should be a great one on Monday Night Football between the 11-3 Ravens and the 11-3 49ers.

Each week to help you find the stats and trends that matter, I’ll be posting the relevant info for every matchup from DraftKings Sportsbook. You can use these numbers to fill out your Week 16 betting card or to build an awesome parlay.
