For the first time ever, Netflix will hold exclusive rights to NFL games. But they didn't just outbid streaming services for any old primetime games. On May 15th, Netflix confirmed its partnership with the NFL for hosting football games on Christmas Day.

This year, you will only be able to watch Christmas Day games with a subscription to Netflix. Their lucrative three-year contract with the NFL runs through the 2025 and 2026 seasons as well.

Following the 2024 NFL schedule release, we learned that there will be four teams (two games) being played on Christmas Day this year. Here's a look at the NFL Christmas Day schedule on Netflix.

Netflix Christmas Day NFL schedule:

  • Kansas City Chiefs @ Pittsburgh Steelers - Dec. 25, 1:00 p.m. ET
  • Baltimore Ravens @ Houston Texans - Dec. 25, 4:30 p.m. ET

The first Christmas Day NFL matchup will take place between the Steelers and Chiefs. Pittsburgh will be hosting the back-to-back Super Bowl champions at Acrisure Stadium, and because this game will take place on December 25th, we have the potential for snow.

The Chiefs are 3-0 against the Steelers since Patrick Mahomes became the starting quarterback in 2018, and Kansas City has averaged 40 points per game against Pittsburgh (including the playoffs).

The second game of the Christmas Day double-header on Netflix will be the Houston Texans hosting the Baltimore Ravens. These two teams met in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs last season when the Ravens stomped on their opponent with a final score of 34-10.

This time around, C.J. Stroud and the Texans will look for revenge as they host the Ravens with all eyes watching.

In a world dominated by technology, it was only a matter of time before a major streaming service like Netflix held exclusive rights to air NFL games on holidays. Unwrap those presents early, because we've got a fun double-header on Christmas this year.
