Everyone get in your favorite couch spot with an open beer ready to go, a bottle of liquor on deck, and a few extra beers ready to go within close proximity (a friend of mine has a mini fridge wedged between couches). Turn on your team's game, or if you're a boss, turn on NFL Red Zone, and get ready for Sunday Funday football style.


When the NFL is in season, Sundays are for the football. Whether you have a favorite team that you root for each week, or if you're a Jaguars fan and your only enjoyment relies on your fantasy team doing well, all Americans agree that Football is by far the best professional sport. The biggest difference between NFL and say the MLB is that you don't have to be blackout drunk to enjoy a football game, whereas I don't know too many people that would dare step foot into a baseball stadium with a BAC lower than .18 and a few airplane bottles.

Before each game kicks off, always wager on which team you think is going to win. Then, whenever the opposing team scores, drinks are given out based on how many points they scored (or shots of liquor can be substituted). If everyone is cheering for the same team, you all drink for each score, be it a "happy shot" or a "fuck the other team just scored shot".

Here's the list of rules for the NFL drinking game, feel free to use as many as you want, or all of them depending on how much fun you want to have:

  • (1) Drink: Every time a penalty flag is thrown
  • (1) Drink: For every first down
  • (2) Drinks: for a safety (+2 points)
  • (2) Drinks: for a third-and-long conversion (8+ yards)
  • (2) Drinks: for a big offensive play (20+ yards gained)
  • (2) Drinks: For every big hit by a defensive player
  • (3) Drinks: For a made field goal (+3 points)
  • (3) Drinks: For every coaches challenge. Then guess if the call will be upheld or not - if you are correct, give 3 drinks out
  • (4) Drinks: For player injuries (depending on how bad it is you might want to use this opportunity to get food)
  • (4) Drinks: Every time you see an awesome touchdown dance
  • (4) Drinks: For every turnover
  • (4) Drinks: Every time the team you wagered on punts
  • (5) Drinks: When an onside kick is recovered by the kicking team
  • (6) Drinks: For every touchdown scored(+6 points)
  • (6) Drinks: For any other unpredictable big plays like Hail Marys or when a kicker or punter lays a big hit on someone

  • (1) Shot: (optional) For every touchdown, in place of the 6 drinks
  • (1) Shot: (optional) for every punt (Jaguars fans know what I mean)
  • (1) Shot: For every Jaguars touchdown. It doesn't matter if you're even watching them play, they're so bad that America drinks when they score (the first half of the 2013 season is over and they have 0 touchdowns at home)
  • (1) Shot: For every defensive touchdown

If you want to spice things up and make the NFL drinking game ever more interesting, implement the Bathroom Rule where if someone misses a drink while in the bathroom, a penalty is called and they drink twice the amount they were supposed to.
