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.

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!)

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!

Football Jigsaw Puzzles

Do you like football? Do you have a favorite team? Do you wear your team’s colors all day long? Do you like to share your passion with others? Well, if you do, then you will certainly like the football jigsaw puzzles that you can find at Puzzle Warehouse.

Football is one of the toughest sports in the world, although you will probably hear that same line from various other sports practitioners. Even though the players are protected, unlike their cousins the rugby players, they are still under a tremendous amount of pressure and they put their health and bodies on the line with every game. If you don’t think that’s right and you’re wondering how it’s like to be on a football field, just imagine a 250 pounds athlete running full speed towards you, with a helmet on. Do you think he will stop? Do you think you can stop him? It’s like trying to stop a freight train. And if a freight train hits you, well, you’re in for an ambulance ride.
Football players hit each other full speed every day. And yet, with hundreds of hours of training and a strict life regimen, they manage to survive the hardness of the game, even if some of them pay the price when they get old.

If you like the game and respect the players, the football jigsaw puzzles are the right thing for you. And don’t worry; there are many football themed images to choose from. Starting at 150 pieces and going up to 2000 pieces, there’s certainly a jigsaw puzzle that you will enjoy and take home to assemble during the game tonight.
