Just four teams play on Christmas while the Lions-Cowboys close out Week 16 on Monday Night Football. The highlight of the early slate of Christmas Eve games features the Vikings going on the road to Green Bay to take on the Packers. The red-hot Dolphins also take on the Bills.

Just three games make up the late afternoon slate but all three are intriguing matchups. As the Raiders fight for a first round bye and the AFC West division title, Oakland hosts the Colts.

The Seahawks will look to keep their lead on the rest of the field for the second seed in the NFC as they take on the Cardinals. The Bucs are fighting for a playoff spot and take on the Saints on the road.

The NFL has historically steered clear of Christmas Day games which is why the majority of the games this weekend are being played on a Saturday. It marks a total of four days this week where the NFL has games scheduled.
