Awesome Activities to Do When There’s No NFL Game On

For all the die-hard NFL fans out there, it can be disheartening when there’s no Thursday Night Football to watch. However, rather than staring at the wall and counting down the hours to your team’s next game, there are plenty of other awesome activities to do that will keep you occupied.

Over the years, there have been some truly great NFL documentaries. Some of the best ones include:

  • Elway to Marino

Plus, even on days where there are games, during the next half-time break, you’ll be able to play your favorite casino games on your smartphone until the action resumes.

Subscribe to NFL YouTube Channels

YouTube is home to some of the most informative (and hilarious) NFL takes. Tom Grossi is a great example of this and is a channel definitely worth subscribing to. In fact, if you have a decent camera at your disposal, you could even launch your own YouTube channel and post reactions to the NFL games you watch.

Go to the Gym

Most NFL players – like the legendary Tom Brady – spend tons of hours in the gym every week. If you want to follow in their footsteps, you should get your own gym membership and start putting in the hours.

The gym is a great way to pass the time and maintain your physical health. Alternatively, if you don’t want to pay for a gym membership, you can invest in your own workout equipment and do everything from home, instead.

Buy Your Team’s Merch

Whether you support the Patriots or are a LA Rams fan, you should head over to their online stores and buy some merch. This is a lot of fun to do – plus, you’ll be able to wear the merchandise the next time you go to a game.

Also, pro tip: merchandise is always cheaper at the end of each season. If you want to save money, wait until this period.

Follow Your Favorite Players on Social Media

If you have a selection of favorite players in the NFL, you should follow them on social media. Most major stars are active on Instagram, which is a great way to stay up-to-date with their off-field activities. You can even DM players if you want to interact with them personally – however, don’t get your hopes up that they’ll reply!

Also, make sure to follow fellow fans on Twitter that support your team. You’ll then be able to tweet them on match-day and join in the fan discussion (which is usually a lot of fun to do).
