Are you ready for some football apps?
It’s just about time for kick off! The NFL season opener is coming up on Wednesday 9/5 and you want to make sure you have everything you need to stay up to date and during the game. I’ve compiled a list of my favorite football apps for this season.
Who can you trust more than the NFL for up to date player info, scores and stats? The NFL ’12 app gives fanatics exactly what they want: all football, all the time. Subscribe to the in-app services to get streaming audio or video of every game during the season plus access to extra shows and broadcasts when there are no games on your television. (iOS and Android)
ESPN definitely lives up to its claim to be “The Worldwide Leader in Sports” with their amazing app. The ESPN ScoreCenter will keep you up-to-date with what’s going on in the world of sports — especially football. During the NFL season, it’s hard to keep up with all the games on at the same time. ESPN ScoreCenter makes it easy to follow the play-by-play of every game with the live-updating stat sheet and scoreboard. (iOS, Android and Windows)
NFL Sunday Ticket (DirecTV)
You subscribe to DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket because you are a football fanatic but sometimes your television is out of reach. Take your subscription with you using the NFL Sunday Ticket mobile app and watch the games from anywhere. (iOS and Android)
Are you tired of picking the winning teams every week and getting nothing for it? With the hit Facebook game, SportsPicker you can put your money where your mouth is. Pick your winners for each game and you can actually win cash prizes for winning picks. (iOS)
You can’t have a successful football season without a few amazing tailgate parties. Don’t let your party fail because of your sub-par grilling skills. Grab that spatula and grill up the best food your friends have ever had the honor of eating. This is the ultimate app for any barbecue, with new recipes and ideas added weekly. Ditch the burgers and dogs for recipes like Yogurt Marinated Chicken. Your friends will thank you for this gem of an app. (iOS and Android)
