Kick-off is at 6pm.
Chandler Jones scored a walk-off touchdown for the Las Vegas Raiders after a crazy decision from the New England Patriots players to throw laterals on the final play of the game.
After the huge divisional clash in Dallas, the night rounds off with a meeting between the Pittsburgh Steelers (6-8) and Raiders (6-8) – kick-off at 1.15am, Sunday morning – as the two famous old franchises celebrate the 50th anniversary of Franco Harris’ ‘immaculate reception’ in the classic 1972 AFC divisional playoff between the pair.

On Sunday, December 25 we’re back to bring you yet another triple-header, this one also kicking off at 6pm with a huge matchup in Miami as Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (6-8) hope to hang on to their playoff hopes with a victory over the Dolphins (8-6), who themselves are desperately clinging on to their post-season aspirations despite three defeats on the trot.
Highlights of the Green Bay Packers’ win over the Los Angeles Rams, which officially knocked the defending Super Bowl champions out of playoff contention.
We then head out to Los Angeles for a meeting between the defending Super Bowl-champion Rams (4-10) and Denver Broncos (4-10), both heavily tipped pre-season contenders eager to salvage some pride in these final few weeks following hugely disappointing seasons – this one gets under way from 9.30pm.
The Christmas Day festivities then conclude into the early hours of Boxing Day morning as, at 1.20am, the Arizona Cardinals (4-10) host Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-8) at State Farm Stadium, the site of this year’s Super Bowl in Glendale, Arizona.
What other NFL is live on Sky Sports this week?
The Week 16 action gets under way with the traditional Thursday night fare and another matchup with huge playoff implications as the Jacksonville Jaguars (6-8) visit the New York Jets (7-7), both battling it out for a wild card spot in the AFC and with the Jags also still in with a shout of winning the AFC South division. This one is live on Sky Sports NFL from 1.15am on Friday morning.

And finally, to close out Week 16, there’s a Monday Night Football clash between the Indianapolis Colts (4-9-1) and Los Angeles Chargers (8-6), with the visitors hoping to move a step closer to clinching a postseason berth with a win over the reeling Colts, who suffered an NFL-record comeback loss to the Minnesota Vikings last weekend. Watch all of the action on Sky Sports NFL from 1.15am, Tuesday.
