Texans-Ravens Playoff Rematch Set for Christmas Day on Netflix at NRG

HOUSTON – The Texans are heading to Netflix on Christmas Day at NRG Stadium.

Under the NFL’s new partnership with the streaming subscription service, the Texans’ playoff rematch against the Baltimore Ravens is set for this holiday matchup on a Wednesday.

The game will also be available on broadcasts in both markets on local television affiliates and on U.S. mobile devices on NFL Plus.

The Texans lost to the Ravens and star quarterback Lamar Jackson in an AFC divisional playoff game loss last season at M&T Bank Stadium.

Netflix also won the rights to a second Christmas Day game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be the first professional sports league to partner with Netflix to bring live games to fans around the world,” said Hans Schroeder, NFL executive vice president of media distribution. “The NFL on Christmas has become a tradition and to partner with Netflix, a service whose biggest day of the year is typically this holiday, is the perfect combination to grow this event globally for NFL fans.”
