Steelers-Texans and Raiders-Eagles to play on Christmas Day

With Christmas Day falling on a Monday this year, the NFL has made a minor adaptation to their normal schedule.

Instead of having a Sunday Night Football game on Christmas Eve, the NFL has scheduled two games for Christmas Day. The Houston Texans will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in a 4:30 p.m. ET kickoff on NBC. That contest will be followed by the Oakland Raiders traveling to the Philadelphia Eagles for a standard 8:30 p.m. ET kickoff for Monday Night Football.

The schedule tweak means no football on Christmas Eve night or Christmas morning.

In addition, there are two games on Saturday, December 23 as well. The Indianapolis Colts will play the Baltimore Ravens at 4:30 p.m. ET and the Green Bay Packers will host the Minnesota Vikings at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

    We’ll be watching the Steelers 2nd stringers as they’ll have the #1 seed in the AFC locked up by then.

    You will be watching second stringers because Big Ben and Bell can’t last a full 16 game schedule.
