NFL Week 16 A Full Saturday, Packers Vs. Bears On NBC Christmas Sunday

NBC's Sunday Night Football has the most attractive (competitively and aesthetically) game of the day, with the Green Bay Packers hosting the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field. There's a high probability of snow on the field, so that should be fun. The rest of the week's match-ups are today on Christmas Eve, so let's see what those in sunny Los Angeles will see on this Saturday:

↵

CBS: Late: San Diego Chargers @ Buffalo Bills

↵

Fox: Early: New York Giants @ New York Jets

↵

Fox: Late: Philadelphia Eagles @ Dallas Cowboys

↵

The only team of the lot which controls it's own destiny is the Dallas Cowboys. They watch the early game for sure, as they win the NFC East with a win and a Giants loss. The San Diego Chargers need the Denver Broncos and Tim Tebow to lose in their early game against the Detroit Lions to stay in the playoff chase mathematically. A Lions win would clinch a playoff berth.

Sunday:

↵

NBC: SNF: Chicago Bears @ Green Bay Packers

Not only is this historic rivalry game being played in the snow, but the Packers can clinch Home Field throughout the playoffs with a win. A Bears loss would take them out of the chase for the NFC Wildcard spots which is currently being won the Atlanta Falcons and Lions.
