July 31st is the renewal date for the Game Pass Plus subscribers and they usually have some kind of offer in June or July so hold off until then.

The Hard Knocks team has been announced, and it is....
The Atlanta Falcons
We can all get to know them before their trip to Wembley in October

Heading to the Tampa Bay game vs Carolina on the first day of the season as I will be in Florida for week 1 of the new NFL season :D

Looking forward to seeing an actual live game in the US. Atmosphere is supposed to be unreal.

It is loud! Ive been to Foxboro and Soldier Field, neither noted for being particularly loud but it is a level above anything Ive heard in a stadium here. Its not cheering or chanting, its just random noises when the away team is on offense but its is fantastic to be a part of.

Can't wait :wub:

Also have the Wembley trip coming up in October as well which should be a good day out. I miss the NFL so much.

First game of the new season on US TV is Green Bay V Seattle. That'll be class.

Really something that I want to do soon, was one of the things I noticed last year watching it on the game pass was just how loud some of the stadiums got on defence. Wembley was far too quiet when I went

Yeah Wembley was good and all but it was dead silent.

Kinda regret not getting tickets for the Dolphins game instead of the Atlanta one.

Gamepass subscriptions are being pushed on NFL.com right now.

There doesnt seem to be any special offer this year so it looks like full price for everyone, still cracking value though. As always dont get the single team package, thats just silly, get the full season pass at least but top tier is worth it for Redzone and NFL Network.

Is there any difference between Season and Season Plus other than archived footage of the play-offs?

How many devices can you watch it on at the same time?

Season Plus also has NFL Network and access to everything for 12 months instead of 6. I thought it had Redzone as a bonus but it looks like that is available with the regular Season pass as well. For a proper breakdown go here and hit compare plans.

I'm looking to get into American Football with the new season, something I have wanted to do for some time but have never quite got round to it. I understand the game on a very basic level, and would like to understand it and it's history a little better before kick off.

Does anyone have any suggestions for things to read or watch that will help me? I'm going to subscribe to Gamepass nearer the time so that I can properly follow my chosen team each week, New York Giants.

Basically, I think you better try to watch some games and you'll pick up from there slowly. Plus, I'm sure most of us will explain you if you need anything to know.

Welcome to the NFL club.

Whilst American Football doesn't have anything like an equivalent to Ken Burn's baseball (a ridiculously detailed history of that sport) if you're interested in some of the history the ESPN "30 for 30" films are interesting, especially the first bunch they made. The ones about college football are a really good way to begin to understand the culture around the NFL and it's shadier elements.

30 for 30 is a good watch for anyone, I really need to get around to watching more of them. Anything from NFL films is worth a watch, Americas Game or A Football Life especially. Really good documentaries in their own right, they just happen to be about the history of the NFL.

Also, strawberry float the Giants.
