4. NFL Game Rewind
You can read all you want but, let's face it, nothing is as good as watching it. Except maybe being in the crowd but, I think a lot of you will settle for just being able to watch it in good quality on your tablet. Tablets are great for this sort of thing because whilst it might not be your Full HD TV, you can watch the game you missed whilst your wife watches something about cooking – speaking of, why don't you check out our Top Ten Cooking Apps. You've got to have a subscription to the service but, if you're a big fan then you probably already do.
3. NFL Sunday Ticket
Another app to get as close to the action on the go as you can, is DirecTV's Sunday Ticket app. Allowing you to watch all the games every Sunday, so long as you have the applicable subscription, of course. There's also a seperate tablet app as well so, it doesn't matter where you are in the country you can still catch the latest from your favourite team. Well worth taking a look if you're a DirecTV Customer.
2. NFL '12
Quite often, an official app of something isn't as good as a custom offering however, this isn't the case when it comes to the official NFL Android app for Smartphones. It's got all the features you'd expect, it'll be update before other apps with the latest scores and news – you can follow your favourite team through thick and thin and the app has unique look and feel. Whilst it might not fit in with Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean it's got a killer look that's all NFL. It's the new version for the season that's just kicked off and I think you had all better go and get it installed right away.
1. NFL Mobile
This time around NFL have partnered with Verizon to deliver a fantastic experience that fits Android very well. There's all the features you'd expect as well as video, highlights and breaking news. This is the best all-round app if you need all NFL, all the time. It's well worth a look and if you've got requisite subscriptions you can unlock some tasty extras.
