An NFL Christmas

An NFL Christmas


There are many exciting games to watch over the holidays, including rival games and playoff makes or breaks. There are many different aspects of Christmas games that make these games so fun and entertaining to watch.

The atmosphere during football games is amazing. This image from last year shows the dedication its fans have. Regardless of the holiday or the weather, stadiums are packed with cheering locals and travelers!

One of the most exciting aspects of the NFL during Christmas is the atmosphere surrounding the games. Many stadiums are decked out in festive decorations and fans often come dressed in holiday-themed attire. The energy and excitement in the air are palpable, creating a unique and memorable experience for everyone in attendance.

There are many intense match-ups coming up. In my opinion, here are the ones to look out for:

→Bengals vs Patriots

→Eagles vs Cowboys

→Raiders vs Steelers

→Dolphins vs Packers

They are all going to be exciting and close games due to the teams’ histories when playing each other in the past.

The Intensity

One thing on every team’s Christmas list is the Lombardi Trophy.

There are only 3 weeks of football left in the regular season. This makes the intensity high as they are all trying to make sure to secure spots in the playoffs.

There are 4 teams that have clinched the playoffs thus far. 3 in the NFC and 1 in the AFC. The Ravens are the only team in the AFC to clinch the playoffs and the 49ers, Cowboys, and Eagles have all clinched the playoffs in the NFC. This leaves only 4 open playoff spots in the NFC and 6 open playoff spots for the AFC.


In conclusion, there are many important and intense match-ups on Christmas Day and Christmas Eve. If you do watch any of the games, make sure to observe the atmosphere. Just remember these games are once a year and always worth the wait!
