This Christmas, NFL fans will be treated to a slate of three games.
After opening presents, and sitting under the tree, it will be time to take in three marquee matchups.
However, the meeting between the Los Angeles Rams and the Denver Broncos will look a bit different than initially planned.
We now get to watch Baker Mayfield vs. Russell Wilson on Christmas Day.
Merry Christmas to all.

After yesterday’s claim of Baker Mayfield, the Rams will likely play him for the remainder of the season.
Merry Christmas, I guess.
It’s A Christmas Miracle!
Although NFL fans are likely less excited about this Broncos-Rams matchup on Christmas, there are two other games that day that should be better contested overall.
The first game of the day will feature the Green Bay Packers and the Miami Dolphins.
The Packers are currently 5-8 and are on the outside looking in, for what looks to be an improbable path to the playoffs.
Presuming they can beat the Rams in Week 15, their playoff chances will still be alive when they take on the Dolphins.
Being that this game will be played in Miami, it allows the Packers to thaw from the tundra of Wisconsin, and pull out a Christmas miracle against the 8-4 Dolphins.
The other Christmas matchup features the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Arizona Cardinals.
The Cardinals, while 4-8, are always an entertaining team to watch.
The Buccaneers are currently 6-6, and hold a one-game lead over the Atlanta Falcons in their division.
Much like the game between the Packers and the Dolphins, this game has serious playoff implications and should provide for a high-caliber Christmas game.
