Are there NFL games for Christmas this year? how to see

Christmas Day holds something special for NFL fans with the first celebratory triple-header in league history.

After the Christmas turkey is served, there will be plenty for football fans to munch on as the three games feature four playoff teams from the 2021 season — as well as the last two Super Bowl champions.

If all you wanted for Christmas was Tom Brady, then you’re in luck because the day ends with him hoping to lead his Tampa Bay Buccaneers to victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

The Green Bay Packers leave the cold to play in the warmer climes of Florida, with a trip to see the Miami Dolphins opening the day’s schedule.

Rodgers went 2-0 on the big day and had eight touchdowns in those two games, including a record five against the Chicago Bears in 2011.

The Dolphins have their own quarterback in Tua Tagovailoa who has impressive numbers and an offense that could put some points on the board.

This could be a celebratory shootout, with the victor taking the spoils of a playoff spot.

Denver Broncos at the Los Angeles Rams

  • Where: SoFi Stadium | Inglewood, California
  • When: 4:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, December 25

The Broncos didn’t have the best season despite putting their all on quarterback Russell Wilson after his trade from Seattle Seahawks.

Wilson faces a former teammate of 10 years, linebacker Bobby Wagner, who will lead the Rams defense to spoil the celebrations for the Broncos.

The Super Bowl champions, the Rams, will be hoping to put on a show that will delight their fans and won’t leave them choking on their turkey and trimmings.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Arizona Cardinals

  • Where: State Farm Stadium | Glendale, Arizona

Unfortunately for Brady, it will be his first day of work on Christmas Day and he could put a miserable end to the big ho, ho, ho for the Cardinals.

Expect fireworks from the team’s wide receivers — the Buccaneers’ Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, and the Cardinals’ Marquise Brown and DeAndre Hopkins.
