The NFL will have three games on Christmas Day for the first time in history. This taking advantage of the fact that December 25, 2022 will be Sunday, a special day for fans of the American football league, reported ESPN.

The first two games will be broadcast on CBS and Fox, and the last game will be broadcast in prime time on NBC.. NFL Broadcasting Vice President Mike North revealed the tripleheader announcement in a podcast hosted by WGR radio host and Buffalo Bills sideline reporter Sal Capaccio,

“Christmas, when it falls on an NFL game day, we’ve had a lot of success there, with all due respect to our friends in the NBA. It’s something our friends care about,” North said. “If Christmas falls on a Sunday, it makes a lot of sense.”

This is the third year in a row that the NFL will have a game on Christmas. Last year, the Green Bay Packers defeated the Cleveland Browns 24-22. and had an audience of 28.6 million people on the Fox network, making it the third most watched game of the regular season.

In 2020, the Indianapolis Colts’ 22-16 victory over the Cardinals in Arizona averaged an audience of 12.6 million on NFL Network, the second most-watched game in network history.

The League announced that it will have 11 games on Saturday, December 24, including a night game on NFL Network. After the Christmas tripleheader, the week will close with a Monday night game on December 26.

24 NFL games have been played on Christmas Day, including two postseason games in 1971.

The three NFL games will compete with the NBA games, which continue to be one of the most attractive sporting events of the Christmas date. The NBA has played five games every December 25 for the past 14 seasons.

The matches that will be played on December 25 will be revealed on May 9, and the full schedule for the 2022 season will be revealed on Thursday, May 12.
