The holiday weekend gives us a pair of Saturday games before a full set of games, including the Packers’, on Sunday.

For several years in the 2010s, the rivalry between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals was one of the most heated in the NFL — a pair of teams that hated one another and had anything but Christmas spirit in their hearts. This weekend, those two teams begin the NFL’s holiday weekend by renewing that AFC North rivalry once again.

That is the first of two games on Saturday, preceding a prime time matchup between the Buffalo Bills and the Los Angeles Chargers. Then, following those games on Saturday, Christmas Eve Sunday will see a full slate of NFL action, with the Green Bay Packers in action early against the Carolina Panthers.

Three more games will follow on Christmas Day, but for now we’ll focus on this weekend’s games, which are headlined by the Dallas Cowboys visiting the Miami Dolphins on Sunday afternoon. Here’s a look at the entire Saturday and Sunday schedule, along with picks for all of the games from our contributors here at APC.

Join us here to discuss all of this weekend’s NFL action!
