NFL Football Puzzles
Football preseason is upon us, and as a truly dedicated fan you’ve likely done everything to prepare. You’ve tested the delivery times of the six closest pizza companies and you’ve ensured the garage fridge has been successfully transitioned into The Snack Fridge. Now you’re killing time until training camp is finished. There’s only so many times you can possibly check for team news—plus, knowing you, the updates are instantly streamlined to your smartphone.
So what’s a fan to do? Luckily for you, Puzzle Warehouse has NFL team themed puzzles to keep your brain active while you wait (also, while browsing, you’ll notice some great collegiate football team puzzles if that’s more your style). With the 150 NFL team piece puzzles, the framed version will make an excellent addition to your screening room, man cave, or basement-turned-entertainment center. The puzzles, though not extravagant in the sheer number of pieces, are attractive and have pieces large enough to easily include any youngsters—also NFL fans, of course— to help. The official NFL New Orleans Saints puzzle also has the logo and a Saints helmet. When finished, grab the Smart Puzzle Glue and hang the image near the TV. All puzzles have a dual purpose: first you build it, then you get to frame it to display your impressive work.
Check out some of these 150 piece team puzzles.

Official NFL San Francisco 49ers by Wincraft Sports. 150 pieces. 17″ x 11″
If you’re looking for a more challenging puzzle that might last throughout the season, give the NFL Team Map a try. Now you’re not only showing your support and passion for football, you’re also throwing in a healthy dose of patriotism. When you’re done, circle your home state and vandalize the state of your team’s biggest rival, or leave the puzzle intact—it’s up to you. No matter what you choose to do, the Team Map will provide a colorful and aesthetically pleasing addition to your wall (and I say the United States of Football image is much better than the animal or flower puzzle your neighbor’s doing, although that may just be me!)
NFL Team Map by Promotional Partners Worldwide. 500 pieces.
Some, though few, may be able to stomach purchasing another team’s puzzle. If you can, purchase your own respective team’s puzzle and a friend’s. Sit down with your pal, start the clock, and see who finishes the puzzle first. That way, no matter whose team comes out on top, you might still have the bragging rights to another type of game. Put that competitive spirit to good use. When your puzzles are complete, grab a cold beverage and a NFL Sunday Ticket (available at www.direct.tv) and enjoy the best season of the year!
