NFL Network will air two Saturday games on December 15 and December 22, and now the broadcast teams for those games have been announced.

The league-owned network announced today that Curt Menefee, Nate Burleson, Steve Mariucci and Melissa Stark will call the Texans-Jets game in Week 15 and the Washington-Titans game in Week 16, while Mike Tirico, Kurt Warner and Peter Schrager will call Browns-Broncos in Week 15 and Ravens-Chargers in Week 16.

The NFL generally avoids Saturday games during college football season but will often play a few Saturday games after the college season is over. This year it’s a pair of NFL Network doubleheaders late in the season.

In Week 17, all 16 games are played on Sunday.
