For some teams – like the one in my hometown of Seattle – it’s going to be an exciting weekend with the playoffs. And as we get closer to the big game Feb. 1, the Touchdown! collection of apps and games for Windows Phone, PCs and tablets can help fans keep up with live coverage, news, analysis and dream team play.
NFL Now (Windows and Windows Phone) delivers streaming video of favorite NFL teams, players and coaches, including interviews and feature stories. In between playoff games, create your own dream team with “NFL Showdown: Football Manager” (Windows and Windows Phone) from real NFL players, then develop strategy, choose your starting lineup, train them and pick up and play. And for more real-feel fun, NFL Connect brings you together with friends for real-time play as a live NFL game unfolds: predict plays, swap in game tiles, hone strategy and race to be the first to achieve a “connect.”
For fast, trustworthy scores, up-to-the-minute stats and standings, and more than 100 podcasts from ESPN Radio, the NFL and other fan sources, Football Pro 15 is a must-have. WatchESPN (Windows and Windows Phone) is another shoo-in, with live games and shows from the ESPN studios, on-demand clips of the latest news and highlights, and 24/7 access to ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU, ESPNews and ESPN Deportes.
Find the Touchdown! collection in the Windows Phone Store and within the Collections section of the Windows Store.
