National Football League Christmas games
| National Football League Christmas games ： ウィキペディア英語版|
Christmas Day and Christmas Eve games in the National Football League are an occasional part of the league's schedule. In contrast to Thanksgiving Day games, however, they are not an annual occurrence; as of 2011, there have been just 17 Christmas Day games in the NFL's history.
After the NFL held two Divisional Playoff games on Christmas Day 1971, the league avoided any more games on Christmas Day until 1989. Starting in 1989, the NFL has held occasional games on Christmas Day in some years, as part of week 16 or 17 of the regular season. Two games were played each Christmas Day from 2004–06.
In recent years, the NFL has scheduled games on Christmas only if it falls on a day normally used for games – Saturday, Sunday or Monday. If Christmas falls on a Sunday, most games are moved to Saturday, Christmas Eve, and then one game is scheduled for Christmas Night to be broadcast nationally. One game is generally held over for the regular Monday night slot. This situation occurred in 1994, 2005 and 2011, and will again in 2016.
There is currently a window, from 9 p.m. local time Christmas Eve to 5 p.m. EST Christmas Day, when no games are played (i.e. no games on Christmas Eve night). Officially, this is done in deference to the holiday, although as a more practical matter it also allows the league to prevent its telecasts from being in direct competition with those of the National Basketball Association's regularly scheduled Christmas games.
