Week 16 of the 2023 NFL season continues with a couple of Christmas Monday afternoon games.

At 1 pm EST, the Kansas City Chiefs host the Las Vegas Raiders in an intense rivalry that goes back to the old AFL days. The 9-5 Chiefs will clinch the AFC West division title with a victory over the Raiders, while the 6-8 Raiders will be eliminated from playoff contention if they lose to the Chiefs.

At 4:30 pm, the Philadelphia Eagles host the New York Giants. The 10-4 Eagles can take a one game lead in the NFC East with two games to play if they defeat the Giants at home. The Giants are playing to keep their faint playoff hopes on life support. A loss to the Eagles will mathematically eliminate the Giants from the playoff race.

Please leave your comments below on whatever late afternoon games catch your fancy.
