Christmas Eve football schedule 2023: Matchups, TV channels

By Kevin Kelley -

The Christmas Eve football schedule in 2023 features a full slate of NFL contests, including one primetime matchup.

Due to Christmas Eve falling on a Sunday this year, there will be no college football bowl games played. However, football fans will be treated with 10 NFL contests in their stockings.

Christmas Eve football action kicks off at 1:00pm ET with six games across the NFL. Matchups include Indianapolis at Atlanta (FOX), Green Bay at Carolina (FOX), Cleveland at Houston (CBS), Detroit at Minnesota (FOX), Washington at NY Jets (CBS), and Seattle at Tennessee (CBS).

Following those games, three NFL contests are scheduled to kickoff in the late afternoon timeslot — Jacksonville at Tampa Bay (CBS), Arizona at Chicago (FOX), and Dallas at Miami (FOX).

Take Air Force. I know the Falcons have lost four in a row, but at one point they were a perfect 8-0. They ranked second among FBS teams in total rushing yards at 3,309 and rushing yards per game at 275.8. The
is still a pain to prepare for, even when a team has some extra time to prepare like James Madison did the last few weeks

Hi James Madison football,

I’ve enjoyed the JMU Dukes ’23 season.

I was busy the day Air Force Academy was played.

I guessed that the Falcons had some of their injured starters back for this Exhibition. Otherwise I expected them to drop a 5th game.
Were some of their skill players back vs your Dukes?

Peacock did a fantastic job showing Bills Chargers game yesterday evening & would like to see Peacock do exclusive NFL game next year & would make a perfect fit to be evening game for NFL Saturday tripleheader & NFL Network to do their doubleheader with games at 1:00PM & 4:30PM. Like to wish everybody God Bless,Safe & Merry Christmas.
