The NFL is back.

American football remains a fan favourite worldwide, combining rough and tumble action with skill, strategy and lots of sweat. ESPN has all the National Football League (NFL) action with coverage airing LIVE all season, opening in August with preseason games including the Chicago Bears hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Washington Redskins taking on the Cleveland Browns.

Among professional sports leagues, the NFL is known for its parity. Preseason favorites always exist – among this season’s are the reigning Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks and the runners-up, the Denver Broncos, not to mention the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots – but every season is unpredictable. Favourites fall, unexpected challengers rise, and every week of the season dishes up a new surprise.

Additionally, for the first time, ESPN will bring NFL fans the NFL RedZone. Accessed on ESPN2 each week, NFL RedZone whips around every NFL game being played on Sunday afternoons in the US (3am and 7:15am kickoff times AEST), delivering the touchdowns and most exciting moments as they happen and in high definition. When a team goes inside the 20-yard line, NFL RedZone takes fans there. It keeps fans up-to-date in real time, switching from game to game with live look-ins, highlights and a chance to see key plays.

Coverage of the NFL airs LIVE all season on ESPN. Don’t miss a play with preseason games airing in August, followed by the official kickoff to the regular season in September.
