The NFL won’t release its schedule for the 2022 season until May 12, but we now know that multiple games will be played on Christmas.
In fact, the NFL plans on making history this holiday season. Mike North, the NFL’s vice president of broadcasting, revealed that the league plans on having a triple-header on Christmas.
North explained the NFL’s plans for its Christmas Day schedule during an interview with Sal Capaccio of WGR in Buffalo.
“We’ll play one game on CBS in the afternoon, one game on Fox in the afternoon, and our regular Sunday night game on NBC,” North said, via ProFootballTalk. “Christmas, when it falls on an NFL game day, we’ve had a lot of success there, all due respect to our friends at the NBA.”
Although the NFL will host a triple-header on Christmas, the bulk of the games that weekend will be played on Saturday.

North pointed out that TV ratings for the past three Christmas Day games have been very good.
“When we can, we will find games for windows on Christmas,” North added.
