It’s the NFL preseason, which means it’s time to get your Android lineup ready to take the field. Don’t just settle for a wallpaper with your team mascot on it this year. Go the whole hog (or pigskin) with these apps!

It’s a paid app, but well-worth it when you’ve got your stats, trivia and history down pat to impress your fellow bar-goers every Sunday. Speaking of which, did you know that fewer weddings are performed on Super Bowl Sunday than on ANY other day of the year?
Ok, I’m a Bears fan. This app says Bears on it, but you can get it as Cardinals News, Jets News, Saints News, and a slew of others made just for your team. It’s got a homescreen widget that even now in the preseason keeps you updated with any and all news about your team, from training to trades.
