Home I Daily Fantasy Sports I Top 5 NFL Christmas Games
Christmas brings many things to our lives. It brings happiness and warmth to our homes, brings presents under the Christmas tree, brings us together with family and friends and most importantly, it brings us the NFL Christmas games. We imagine you sitting comfortably in the living room together with your closest relatives and friends, talking NFL.
The screen is on, the game is about to begin and you’re all ready to enjoy it with a cup of hot chocolate or a bottle of beer in your hands. But what is that game? What are the NFL Week 16 games worth watching and which ones would impact the Playoff phase?
To make your choice of NFL Christmas games easier, we created the following list. Check out the top 5 most interesting NFL Christmas games, as seen by our editorial staff.
The Raiders and the Eagles go head to head just in time for Christmas dinner. The game is scheduled for 8:30 PM ET on the 25th and will be played at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. The Eagles enter the match as clear favorites with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses. The Raiders on the other hand, are a team heavily dependent on their offense and when life got tough for it recently, the whole team’s performance suffered. But there is an interesting tendency occurring recently…
The Raiders defense has made 28 sacks in their past four games and this is half their season total. If only they had been putting up such QB pressure early on, they could have been ranking high in league sacks right now. Having that in mind, this game is not going to be as one-sided as you might think. The Raiders are now playing only for their own honor, without any Playoff pressure, and we assume they would present a tough obstacle for the Eagles to face on their road to first place in the conference.
Home field advantage in the Playoff phase would mean the world for QB Carson Wentz and his teammates, so expect a focused and touchdown-driven Eagles offense. This game has the potential to play a key role in the fate of both teams this season.
This is one of the best match-ups so far this season. Both teams rank second in their NFC divisions and have their key players ready to play this key game. RB Ezekiel Elliott is back for the Dallas Cowboys after he served his six-game suspension. He will be boosting the Cowboys’ run game and taking full advantage of the strongest offensive line in the league. Bookmakers see that as a star return and see the Cowboys as slight favorites.
The Seahawks shouldn’t be underestimated, though. This team has a proven bounce-back ability and a top quarterback. QB Russel Wilson has scored 33 touchdowns so far this season and has the rushing record of a running back – 521 yards.
This game is not only important for the two opposing teams, but also for their direct rivals in the battle for the division’s second place. The Washington Redskins (6-8) stand behind Dallas and the Arizona Cardinals (6-8) are behind Seattle.
The Los Angeles Rams destroyed the Seahawks last week and their next target resides in Tennessee. A slip here for the Rams could not only mean a lost battle for home field playoff advantage, but also has theoretical chances to cost them first place in the division. The Titans are not an easy opponent to deal with.
We have seen their explosive offense at the start of each NFL season. Then there is the usual mid-season decrease until it is time for QB Marcus Mariotta to rise again in the conclusive games.
This match-up is going to be a football show you shouldn’t miss.
This one is a divisional battle in the AFC East. The Patriots have already clinched the division but the season for both teams is far from over. With a record of 8-6 and a varying performance of QB Tyrod Taylor, the Bills are not sitting securely on the second place spot. The Miami Dolphins are right after them, determined to earn a Playoff ticket at the Bills’ expense.
QB Tom Brady’s Patriots on the other hand, would do everything to play the next stage at home in Foxborough. The slip against Miami makes this game even more important for the Pats.
Atlanta Falcons face the Saints in a game that is a clash of titans. This is a divisional match of the NFC South and will have direct Playoff implications. The Saints are the current leaders, sharing a 10-4 record with the second team – the Carolina Panthers.
The Falcons, who reached the Super Bowl last year, are ranked third in the division with 9 wins and 5 losses. All three teams have clear chances for clinching the division title. Is WR Julio Jones going to make the difference for Atlanta on Sunday? Or is QB Drew Brees going to maintain a high-scoring Saints offense? Watch the game on Sunday and find out.
The Cleveland Browns (0-14) have yet to win a single game this season. During the Christmas week they face the Bears (4-10) in windy Chicago. If the Browns are going to record a victory this season, it just has to be now. The Bears are in a decline, and the team from Cleveland has a tradition to give an additional spark to Christmas celebrations by gifting their fans with a season win. They have the players and the potential is there, too. Are we going to see yet another happy Christmas for Cleveland fans, we’re about to find out.
