There's a good slate of games on Saturday, Christmas Eve, and those matchups are punctuated with the game we've all been waiting for, the Seattle Seahawks hosting the San Francisco 49ers on Fox at 1pm. The Seahawks/49ers game has some major playoff implications - if the Hawks win it keeps their their faint playoff hopes alive and if the 49ers win it gives them a leg up on their quest to secure the No. 2 seed in the NFC, meaning that coveted first-round bye.
The only bad news here is that the Seahawks/49ers game is in the late slot, meaning we have to wait alllllllll morning for that game to start. In the meantime, we'll have to settle in and watch a couple other games.
CBS: 10am PST/1pm EST: Denver Broncos at Buffalo Bills. Jim Nantz, Phil Simms on the call. This game, of course, is being shown over the vast majority of these United States for one specific and annoying reason - Tim Tebow.
FOX: 10am PST/1pm EST: New York Giants at New York Jets: Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston, Tony Siragusa on the call. This is supposed to be one of the bigger matchups of the weekend, being that it's two New York football teams and they're both moderately good. Regardless, there are playoff implications in this one as well, so it should provide for some good drama.
