Just three weeks remain in the 2022-23 NFL regular season, and there’s still plenty to play for.

The majority of Week 16’s games will be played on Saturday, Christmas Eve. Highlight matchups include the 8-5-1 New York Giants taking on the 11-3 Minnesota Vikings, the 10-4 Cincinnati Bengals battling the 7-7 New England Patriots, and in the afternoon slot, the 13-1 Philadelphia Eagles (sans Jalen Hurts) traveling to Texas to play the 10-4 Dallas Cowboys.

Christmas Day features three matchups, but only one of the six teams playing holds a winning record. Still, Green Bay Packers at Miami Dolphins provides some intrigue, and Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will still draw a crowd in the night slot against the Arizona Cardinals. You can’t fault the NFL schedule makers for expecting Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Rams to be a good matchup, but it shapes up to be the least intriguing and least consequential game of the day.
