The Arizona Cardinals arrived at State Farm Stadium in the holiday spirit for Saturday’s game vs. the Indianapolis Colts.

For a lot of Arizona players, it marked the first time playing on Christmas Day.

And with Saturday’s matchup being a primetime game, a few Cardinals certainly brought their Christmas fashion to the spotlight.

Safety Budda Baker certainly looked ready for the showdown against the Colts, dressed up in his best Santa Claus impression.

As for linebacker Isaiah Simmons, he went a different route this Christmas.

The Cardinals host the Colts at 6:15 p.m., with a win clinching a playoff berth for Arizona and ending the second-longest postseason drought in the NFL.

Catch all the action on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
