Default Games on Christmas day '05?

Next year Christmas falls on a Sunday, I wonder how the NFL will schedule games?

I've seen games on Xmas before I think. It's just the way it happens sometimes.

They schedule the bulk of the games on Saturday. I don't remember if they have a day game or the Sunday night game on Sunday. It seems like the ESPN game was moved to Christmas eve that year. Here is what happened in 1994 (the last time Christmas fell on a Sunday):

Week 17:
Saturday, Dec. 24
Arizona(8-8) @ ATLANTA(7-9) 6-10
Buffalo(7-9) @ INDIANAPOLIS(8-8) 9-10
Dallas(12-4) @ NY GIANTS(9-7) 10-15
GREEN BAY(9-7) @ Tampa Bay(6-10) 34-19
NEW ENGLAND(10-6) @ Chicago(9-7) 13-3
Philadelphia(7-9) @ CINCINNATI(3-13) 30-33
Seattle(6-10) @ CLEVELAND(11-5) 9-35
KANSAS CITY(9-7) @ LA Raiders(9-7) 19-9
NEW ORLEANS(7-9) @ Denver(7-9) 30-28
NY Jets(6-10) @ HOUSTON(2-13) 10-24
Pittsburgh(12-4) @ SAN DIEGO(11-5) 34-37
WASHINGTON(3-13) @ LA Rams(4-12) 24-21
Sunday, Dec. 25
Detroit(9-7) @ MIAMI(10-6) 20-27

Hmmmm, it would be hard for me to attend a game on Christmas. Being with my family is more important. If the Texans do have a home game at Christmas I will donate my tickets to a charity.

I'm with you on that Greg, of course the charity would be my neighbor who's been bugging me for tickets. The best thing for me would be that our beloved team is on the road that weekend, or hey, even better yet, it could be our first Monday night game

Would you go to a home Texan's game on Christmas Eve at 12pm? How about 3pm?

Yes on the 12:00 start, no on the 3:00 start. I live 90 minutes from the stadium so that would get me back to the house probably around 8:00.

What day was the Oilers/ 49ers game? I remember it being really close to Christmas. The Oilers put on one of their best games in the history of the franchise to that moment.

The Oiler-49er game was indeed on Christmas. The Oilers were in the mist of a 12 game win streak. It was all big waste of time however as the Bud cursed Oilers choked against the Chiefs in the Astrodome in the Divisional Playoffs.

Did they do the same thing for new years day? I'm sure they don't want to compete with the bowl games.

Wow!! I was just thinking about this today after looking at the schedule next week and seeing games scheduled on Christmas day and thinking what happens next year when Christmas falls on a Sunday? For as long as I've been watching football I couldn't for the life of me remember if the NFL played games Christmas day or not.

All I know is that if we have a home game Christmas day, Christmas morning for me will be in the yellow lot.

If we don't have a game on Christmas day/eve, we will surely have one on New Years day/eve. Imagine, Dec. 31, 2005, parking lot opens at 8:00 am, don't have to hide the alcohol on Saturday, game from 12 - 3, 1 hour aftergame tailgate, then it's time for the New Years party. That's going to be one long and fun day!

In 1994, the 1st round of the playoffs feel on that weekend. They played 2 games on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. I vaguely remember them playing all of the "January 1" games on the 2nd instead. My memory might be failing me though.
