The NFL is back! In 2021, you don't just consume the NFL on a TV. You can get injury updates, fantasy scores, and more through apps and the web. You can even watch games on the go depending on your subscriptions and which company is broadcasting the game you want to see. Many of the best Windows 10 apps center around watching content, and these ones will make sure that you don't miss a second of the big game.

The other apps in this collection allow you to watch or listen to content on internet-connected devices, but if you want to add depth to the games you watch, you need to use Twitter. Reporters, bloggers, and video makers are all on Twitter and active during NFL games and throughout the week. Tweeten, which is available on PCs, lets you watch the news and insight roll in live.

Using the web: Your browser of choice

While there are many great apps for consuming NFL content, the best way to view some things is directly through a browser. For example, if you subscribe to YouTube TV or Vidgo, you'll need to have a browser handy to watch the NFL on your PC. Any good browser will do, but my browser of choice is Microsoft Edge.

Look at the schedule: Outlook Calendar

Sports panelist Woody Paige always emphasizes that you "look at the schedule!" when talking about sports. The same holds true for watching the NFL. Outlook lets you subscribe to calendars, including the NFL's calendar, to make sure that you never miss a big game. You'll have to set this up on the Outlook website, and then can view them in the Mail and Calendar app.

Football everywhere

The beginning of the NFL season is a time for hope. Fans of every team can see how their team has changed since last season. While most of these apps will help you watch games live, one of the best ways to enhance your NFL experience is to use Tweeten. The TweetDeck client will make sure that you're up to date on the game as well as any trending topics. You never know when a player will break a record, or when an upset will happen. Using Tweeten will ensure that you get all the NFL coverage that you'd like.

The app that you should use to watch NFL games depends largely on if you already have a subscription to a service and which games you'd like to watch. But if you're starting from scratch or you just cut the cord, Sling TV is an excellent option. Sling Blue + Orange is a nice package of channels for NFL fans.

In addition to providing NFL-related content, Tweeten and Sling TV are both excellent apps on Windows 10. They'll work well with your Windows 10 desktop, laptop, 2-in-1, or tablet.
