This year on Christmas, the NFL will host two games. The first one will be Cleveland Browns vs Green Bay Packers, which will kick off at 4:30 p.m. ET. Second will be Indianapolis Colts vs Arizona Cardinals kicking off at 8:15 p.m. ET. The NFL Network will broadcast both the games.

Usually, we can see the NBA dominating the Holiday. But this year Christmas is on a Saturday, and the NFL usually hosts its games on weekends. Since 2017, this is the first doubleheader by the NFL. Last year on Christmas day, The Minnesota Vikings faced the New Orleans Saints.
