xmas football #1 (answered)

Postby Alkaholik » Mon Dec 19, 2005 1:13 pm

The NFL dislikes having NFL games on XMAS day.

We are lucky enough to have 2 games this year on xmas day.

Since the beginning of the NFL, how many official NFL seasons did it take before they had a football game on xmas day?

Looking for the number of the NFL "season" that the first xmas day game was played.

The first time that a pro football game was played on Christmas came in the National Football League's 52nd season. The divisional playoff games in 1971 were played December 25 and highlighted by the longest game in NFL history.

It wasn't until the NFL's 52nd season that they decided to host 2 NFL games on XMAS day.
