NFL: for the first time, there will be three matches at Christmas this year

Joe Reedy, The Associated Press

This year, the NFL will take advantage of the fact that Christmas will be a Sunday to go there for the first time, a three-game program.

There will be two matches starting in the afternoon, on CBS and Fox, then an evening match on NBC.

The NFL will thus be in even more direct competition with the NBA.

Over the past 14 seasons, the NBA has played five games on Christmas Day.

Christmas was a Saturday last year. In the NFL, Cleveland won 24-22 at Green Bay, then the Colts won 22-16 at Arizona.

The NFL will reveal who will be playing on Christmas the week of May 9.

The full league schedule will be announced on May 12.
