The NFL’s week 16 schedule features a host of holiday games, with Christmas Eve taking place on Sunday and Christmas Day on Monday. There is a full slate of NFL action on Christmas Eve, two games on Saturday beforehand, and a tripleheader on Christmas Day itself.
But two teams play tonight on Thursday Night Football to get the weekend underway, and both squads are looking to get a huge edge in the race for a playoff spot in the NFC. The New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams both come into tonight’s game at 7-7, with the Rams owning a tiebreaker for the 7th and final spot.
The Green Bay Packers are chasing both of these teams now, and although Green Bay has a head-to-head win over each of them, a win by either one is problematic. The best-case scenario for the Packers tonight would be a tie.
Here are APC’s picks for tonight’s game, along with the game details, including broadcast information.
