NFL Football

As baseball season comes to an end, sports enthusiasts are looking forward to a fall season full of pumpkin flavored Starbucks drinks, cooler temperatures, and football!

It’s refreshing how loyal a person can be to a team. Professional, college, and even high school football fans have high hopes for their team. Many people watch their beloved team on television, but how much football do you actually watch? I did some digging and found a few sources that have great numbers on what actually goes on when you watch NFL football on a Sunday, or Monday.

In a nutshell you get about 11-12 minutes of actual playing time…dare I ask why we even watch it on tv anymore?
