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.
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.
