NFL's 2011 schedule will include full slate of Christmas Eve games

December 27, 2010 |  4:04 pm

Nfl-logo_175 Christmas falls on a Sunday next year, so you can expect the NFL will have a full Christmas Eve slate of games on Saturday.

The schedule isn't out yet, but there will also probably be a game or two played on Christmas Day.

According to NFL spokesman Dan Masonson, the last time Christmas fell on a Sunday was 2005, when the league played 13 games on Dec. 24 and two on Christmas.

The Christmas Sunday before that came in 1994, when every game but one was played on Saturday.
