The NFL announced a three-game Saturday package for Week 16 — Christmas weekend — and the Raiders are at the center of those holiday plans. Their home game against the Miami Dolphins will be played on Saturday night, at 5:15 p.m. PT on the NFL Network.
The game could have big AFC playoff implications. The Raiders are 6-5 and the Dolphins are 7-4. The Raiders play on Thursday night in Week 15, at home against the Los Angeles Chargers, so the Saturday night game will not be played on short rest.
It should be a fun day after Christmas.
