Football Movies To Stream Instead Of Actual Games

Sharing is caring!

Look, we know your team isn’t always playing during the holidays. There are only so many teams playing on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, or even in the New Year’s Bowl Games. Every year. Unless you are a Cowboys, Lions, or Alabama fan (or both!) you may be out of luck for holiday football games. Here is a list of football movies to stream rather than actual football games. Affiliate links may be included with this post.

Football Movies To Stream Instead Of Actual Games

We love a good football game- and even more so when our team is winning.

But some years things just don’t work out (looking at you, AGAIN, Texas Longhorns) so we have to find ways to watch football without actually watching a game.

There are only so many times we can stand seeing Alabama win, amirite?

So here we go with the big list of football movies you can stream instead of a game this holiday season.

These go well when you need to avoid the New Year’s bowl games, Thanksgiving games (bless those Lions- they keep trying, don’t they?), and of course, the NFL Christmas game.
