The upcoming NFL season is going to look a lot different this year due to COVID-19, as most games will be played in empty stadiums. 

While there are some groundbreaking new stadiums opening this year in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, the gameday experience at home can be just as good, if not better. 

To get ready for the unusual 2020 season, we share why watching NFL games is better at home than in person. 

You Don’t Have To Worry About Weather

You might be lucky enough to support a team that plays inside a stadium with a retractable roof, but others aren’t so lucky. A cold-weather game can be fun to experience in person, but it’s much better from the comfort of your own home. 

Instead of freezing in the stands with layers of clothing, be as comfortable as possible on the couch in your home. Traveling to a game in bad weather is also no longer an issue when you can simply sit back and relax without worrying about missing the kickoff. 

Better View of the Field

NFL stadiums also have some great vantage points, but you might find yourself following the game on the massive video board if you are in the nosebleeds. At home, you can get yourself a high-quality TV and not miss a play with the best possible view on a telecast. 

You Can Follow Multiple Games at Once

If you are also into fantasy football, chances are you will also be watching other games closely to track your team’s performance. This can be tough when you are in a stadium, but at home, you can watch every game with the NFL Sunday Ticket or get every big play with NFL RedZone. 

Less Downtime

Another reason why watching NFL games is better at home than in person is because you don’t have as much downtime. There are a lot of timeouts and stoppages of play during an NFL game, and it’s even more evident when you are in the stadium. 

If there is a timeout or commercial break, you can quickly switch the channel to check on another game or go for a quick bathroom break, which can be difficult in a stadium full of fans. 

It’s Cheaper

The final reason why you shouldn’t be too upset that you won’t be able to see your team in person this year is because it’s far cheaper to watch the game at home. Not only do you not have to pay for tickets, but you can also save a ton of money on food and beverages. 

Think about how much money you will be able to save by not going to games this year—you might not ever get a season ticket again after this season.
