The NFL closes out Week 16 with a Christmas doubleheader that also marks the final week of Monday Night Football. The NFL plays all 16 games on Sunday next week, so it is fitting that Christmas gives us double the Monday action. Things get going earlier than normal for Bay Area fans. The Houston Texans host the Pittsburgh Steelers in the opener, with kickoff scheduled for 1:30 p.m. PT. The Philadelphia Eagles host the Oakland Raiders in the latter game, with kickoff scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
