What it is: Like many other sports apps, the official NFL Mobile app lets you add your favorite team to the top of the home page so you can view news and updates in a separate feed. Most of the articles within the app come with related video, but because it's an official NFL app, all the content is from NFL Network and NFL.com. The app is particularly well-suited for Verizon customers, who can watch live and pre-recorded primetime NFL games, regional games on Sundays, and NFL Network programming, including NFL RedZone. (All of this content is free to Verizon customers, except for RedZone, which costs $1.99 per month.)
Why you should use it: Even if you are not a Verizon customer, you can still get select content through an NFL GamePass subscription for $99 a year. A single subscription can be used across multiple devices, including smartphones, tablets, desktop computers and connected TV devices. However, the package doesn't include live video of NFL games, only live audio and replays of games.
