NFL Games Today TV Schedule: Channel and start time for Saturday Week 16

What are the NFL games today in Week 16? Here's the information you need regarding who plays and when -- don't miss any of Saturday's action!

Merry Christmas to all! This year, my present to you is a duo of NFL games today to add an extra layer of fun and excitement to the holidays. While last week’s Saturday games featured solely AFC squads, Week 16 features two cross-conference matchups. The heavily-depleted Cleveland Browns head to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers. Meanwhile, the red-hot Indianapolis Colts head to Arizona to take on the free-falling Cardinals. Here’s more information on where and when to watch these Week 16 Christmas NFL games today.

NFL Saturday Games Today TV Schedule | Week 16

With two games being played on Christmas, here is the schedule for the NFL games being played on Saturday.

Cleveland Browns (7-7) at Green Bay Packers (11-3)

  • Channel: FOX, NFL Network
  • Start time: 4:30 PM ET

COVID-19 still has its grip on the Browns roster. Both Baker Mayfield and Case Keenum remain on the reserve/COVID-19 list, most likely leading to Nick Mullens’ second straight start under center for Cleveland. The secondary has five players out, and the ones that do play will be in for a long night at Lambeau Field.

QB Aaron Rodgers tied the Green Bay Packers’ all-time passing touchdown record of 442 with his 3 tosses against the Ravens in Week 15. He looks to break the record set by Brett Favre against the Browns on Christmas.

Given the set of circumstances the Browns are still facing due to COVID, it seems highly unlikely the offense will be able to keep pace with the Packers after their performance against Las Vegas on Monday. Green Bay inches even closer to the NFC’s one seed.

Indianapolis Colts (8-6) at Arizona Cardinals (10-4)

  • Channel: NFL Network
  • Start time: 8:15 PM ET
  • Live stream:

What an exciting NFL game for Christmas night. The Colts are rolling, fresh off a 27-17 win over the Patriots last Saturday. RB Jonathan Taylor gashed New England’s defense for 170 yards rushing, including a 67-yard dagger to put the game out of reach.

Arizona, meanwhile, is in a slump at the moment after losing to the Lions 30-12 in Week 15. They’ve now lost back-to-back games for the first time this season, and WR DeAndre Hopkins’ absence from the offense was evident.

The Colts’ defense is no slouch and has been opportunistic all season. Indianapolis has a +14 turnover ratio, the best in the NFL. Yet, Arizona is not too far behind at +10, and Carson Wentz will need to play a clean game for a chance at an Indianapolis upset bid.

These two teams are scraping and clawing their way to their respective playoff seeds, and this NFL game today will feature two highly motivated squads. Despite their early success, QB Kyler Murray and the Cardinals lose their third game in a row today but in a much closer contest. The Colts lean on Taylor and continue to climb up the AFC ladder.
