• More NFL: Arizona Cardinals top our preseason Power Rankings

American football is back, and the sport’s pre-eminent league, the NFL, begins this week with a Super Bowl rematch between the Carolina Panthers and the defending champion Denver Broncos.

While that game takes place a bit too early in the morning for UAE residents (or late at night, depending on your style) for the typical sports fan, there are plenty of late-night Sunday matches to sate the appetite.

Fans who want access to the entire season’s slate of NFL games can purchase the NFL Game Pass from NFL.com. Locally, select games are weekly featured live on both BeIN Sports and OSN Sport packages, though relying on their schedules or looking for specific games is always a game of chance.
