Cleveland Browns’ quarterback threw four interceptions for the first time in his career, and it came at the expense of the Green Bay Packers.

In the second game of NFL Christmas Day, the Indianapolis Colts took on the Arizona Cardinals. It was a low-scoring game, but in the end, the Colts made the proper adjustments just enough to take one on the road. The Colts defense pressured Kyler Murray in the 4th quarter, forcing him to scramble and make incompletions. Cardinals started the season as one of the hottest teams in the NFL, but injuries and inconsistent play on the field are hurting them. Cardinals have lost three in a row, dropping to 10-5 and second place in the NFC West division.

Before the season began, everyone had Brooklyn Nets vs. Los Angeles Lakers to meet in the NBA Finals. So far, those predictions are looking slim. On Christmas Day, the Nets and Lakers faced off to give the fans a taste of a future Finals matchup. However, in this game, not every player was at full strength. No Kevin Durant, no Kyrie Irving, no Anthony Davis for this heavyweight matchup. A veteran guard stole the spotlight and the show, Patty Mills. He was sensational from behind the arc finishing the game career-high 34 points. It was the fifth consecutive loss for the Lakers, who fell to 16-18, while the Nets improved to an Eastern Conference-best 22-9 with an impressive 12-3 record on the road.
