Giants-Eagles isn’t the only game on Christmas

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Jacksonville Jaguars Jeremy Reper-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL has three games scheduled for Christmas Day, with the New York Giants sandwiched in the middle at 4:30 p.m.

The holiday is headlined by a matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, the two current betting favorites to win the Super Bowl in February. Neither team has lost a game since early November and feature two MVP candidates at quarterback in Brock Purdy and Lamar Jackson.

The Ravens and 49ers are the owners of the two best records in the NFL at 11-3 and currently hold the No. 1 seed in their respective conferences. Both teams have already clinched a playoff spot, with Baltimore being the only AFC to do so heading into Week 16.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Las Vegas Raiders will meet earlier in the day, and a Kansas City victory would hand the Chiefs their eighth straight AFC West title. The Chiefs beat the Raiders 31-17 in Week 12 and have won 11 of their last 12 meetings with Las Vegas.

The Raiders have logged a 63-21 victory and a 3-0 loss in the last two weeks. Make of that what you will.

Edge defender Maxx Crosby has 13.5 sacks this season, giving him a realistic chance at surpassing Derrick Burgess’ franchise record of 16.0 sacks before the year ends. Patrick Mahomes has been sacked just 1.5 times per game though, better than any quarterback except Josh Allen.
