Christmas Fun Fact #7

There have only been 19 games played on Christmas Day in the NFL. Traditionally, the NFL tries to move games that would ordinarily fall on Christmas Day. This year is particularly difficult, given that the holiday is on a Sunday. Many of the games have been rescheduled for Christmas Eve, but two games will take place on Christmas Day–the Ravens will play the Steelers in the afternoon, then the Broncos will play the Chiefs.
