Happy Holidays!

Your Detroit Lions are NFC North Champions! You get to enjoy a holiday free of football-related stress and can spend your time relaxing with the people you love. But, if you want to spend some of that time watching football, the NFL has you covered.

The NFL closes out Week 16 with a Christmas Day triple-header, loaded with intense rivalry games and playoff implications. The first game of the day will feature the Las Vegas Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs at 1 p.m. ET on CBS, followed by the New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles at 4:30 p.m. ET on FOX, and closing the day with a battle between the top teams in each conference, Baltimore Ravens at San Francisco 49ers at 8:15 p.m. on ABC.

Here’s a look at how to watch each game, who the good folks over at DraftKings Sportsbook are favoring, and who the POD staff is picking in the games.

Here’s how to watch the Las Vegas Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs

Date: Monday, December 25, 2023
Time: 1:00 p.m. ET
Location: GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri
TV: CBS/Nickelodeon
CBS Announcers: Jim Nantz, Tony Romo, and Tracy Wolfson (field reporter)
Nickelodeon Announcers: Noah Eagle, Nate Burleson, and Dylan Schefter (field reporter)
Online Stream/Replay: Paramount+, NFL+ Premium

The good folks over at DraftKings Sportsbook are favoring the Chiefs by over a touchdown, and the Pride of Detroit is sticking with Kansas City on the moneyline but are split on the spread.

Here’s how to watch the New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles

Date: Monday, December 25, 2023
Time: 4:30 p.m. ET
Location: Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
TV: FOX
Announcers: Joe Davis, Daryl Johnston, and Pam Oliver (field reporter)
Online Stream/Replay: FOX Sports App, NFL+ Premium

The good folks over at DraftKings Sportsbook are favoring the Eagles by well over a touchdown, and while the Pride of Detroit staff are all with Philadelphia on the moneyline, the majority flips to the Giants when the spread is involved.

Date: Monday, December 25, 2023
Time: 8:15 p.m. ET
Location: Lumen Field in Seattle, Washington
TV: ABC
Announcers: Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, and Lisa Salters (field reporter)
Online Stream/Replay: ESPN+, ESPN APP, NFL+ Premium

The good folks over at DraftKings Sportsbook are favoring the 49ers by a little over a field goal, and the Pride of Detroit staff is split on both the moneyline and against the spread — which shouldn’t be surprising, as both teams are currently slotted in the No. 1 seed in their respective conferences.
