    "If you don't have cable, this is the way to. I like that I cut the cord, but it really puts a damper on the sports I can watch. Sky Sports is absolutely perfect for this."

    "The website is a bit confusing and has ads all over it while also forcing you to turn it off. It's a very spammy website but it is effective in what it does. There are better options out there though."

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that American football was played similarly to rugby until Walter Camp's proposal of a set of new rules? Camp, considered to be the father of the sport, made plenty of changes to what was essentially rugby and transformed it into the sport which became well-known as American football. Among his many contributions to the sport, the most well-known and significant improvement that he had made was the snap from center to quarterback, next to the establishment of the line of scrimmage. Additionally, in 1883, the scoring rules were changed. At 1888, another rule was altered to legalize tackling below the waist.

Although football was only originally popular in Midwestern industrial towns, its popularity grew all throughout the United States thanks to the 1958 NFL Championship game, effectively being dubbed as "The Greatest Game Ever Played". Presently, more than 50 years later, The Super Bowl, the annual championship game of the NFL, is now the most watched television event in the United States. With the Super Bowl XLIX alone achieving 114.4 million views. With the rise of the internet, though, most fans are now opting to watch NFL games online. Moreover, plenty of NFL-related media, like video games, apps, and action figures, have also gained popularity amongst its fanbase.

    "Despite the amount of free streaming sites on this list, I'm honestly preferring FOX sports since its qualities are the best with high def sounds and good video quality. You get what you pay for, is what I always say. Just wish the subscription fee could be cheaper tho."

    "If you're like me and just don't have direct access to a lot of football games, this site is a boon. Just about every match I've ever wanted to watch has been up here and the link has worked great. Only giving it .5 off because sometimes the streams lag a bit or don't have the greatest quality, but overall they're more than fine."
