20 Best Football Movies on Netflix

These 20 best football movies on Netflix are great to watch during the Summer, pre-season, football season, or any Friday night (football movies) during the year.

Why are we obsessed with football?

We’re watching football on Thanksgiving and Christmas days brings up another issue: Sunday is no longer the only day of the week devoted as a Sabbath to the pigskin. There’s the NFL draft, preseason games, pre and post game analysis, Monday night football, Thursday night games, the post season and of course, the Super Bowl. Even in the off-season there is reason to remain engaged, tuned in, studying, because now the fan can get into the game through fantasy sports. (Source)

These movies include everything from movies, documentaries, behind-the-scenes footage, and more. These are great selections to add to your Netflix list. You’ll also love these high school football movies on Netflix.
