Viewer’s Guide: NFL Christmas Week TV Schedule, Announcers, and Coverage Maps – Week 16

One game of the Week 16 schedule is already in the books — the Indianapolis Colts secured win #2 of the season by defeating the Houston Texans at Lucas Oil Stadium. (But did they lose for winning?) What’s in store for the rest of Week 16? Check out the TV schedule below and our Bettor’s Guide, posted earlier this week.

nfl-week-15-tv-schedule-announcersThe most important thing to note about the Week 16 schedule is that the majority of it will be played on Saturday, Christmas Eve, with the usual primetime games on Sunday and Monday night, but nothing else on Christmas Day to interrupt the present unwrapping (and, of course, Christmas Day NBA lineup).

The highlights?

Dallas-Philadelphia should be a fun game, though we won’t know if it is at all meaningful until the Giants-Jets game is over.

San Francisco-Seattle is a much better matchup than most people are giving it credit for, though I guess I can’t really blame people for being uninspired by Alex Smith v Tarvaris Jackson.

Oh, and Tim Tebow is playing. But beware the trap game for Denver. Don’t be shocked if Buffalo wins.

As for the primetime games, Green Bay-Chicago is always intriguing and New Orleans-Atlanta could very well be one of the 10 most entertaining games of the season.

So, all in all, a pretty good slate of games for NFL fans this weekend. Merry Christmas to us!

  4. If you are being troubled by skin warts, then cryosurgery can also freeze your worries away. Over-the-counter skin tag removers are easy to apply. Dermisil- It is a natural herbal extract from three plants Ricinus communis, Thuja occidentalis and Melaleuca.

  5. Except for the i Phone 4, which will probably continue to be sold as a low-end handset. Analysts and pundits were off the mark with that prediction, as instead Apple chose to release the i Phone 5C as a replacement for the i Phone 5, which in the past the company would have continued to sell at a $99 price point on contract. Almost all the gadgets launched by the brand are amazing in features and incredible in looks.
