If you're a football fan, you're probably breathing a sigh of relief right about now. The continuing spread of the coronavirus has not had a huge impact on the NFL, mostly because it's in the middle of the offseason. Still, if you're stuck at home due to self-isolation and need a way to pass the time during the offseason, you might want to grab a cheap subscription to ESPN+ for just $5 a month. You can use it to watch the NFL's Greatest Games, including classic Super Bowl battles and unmissable playoff games. Relive some of the greatest moments in football history, including games you may not have been old enough to watch live.

Look, as a lifetime Indianapolis Colts fan and Peyton Manning enthusiast, I'm just going to go ahead and tell you the best NFL game of all time that you should definitely watch. It is the 2006 AFC Championship Game. One of the greatest comebacks of all time. The ultimate duel between the Tom Brady-led New England Patriots and the Peyton Manning-led Colts. Manning led his team back from an 18-point deficit to win in amazing fashion. After this win, the Super Bowl was just a token victory and an expected win.

For some weird reason that experts are still debating to this day, that game did not make the NFL's list of "Top Ten Great Games Ever." Last season, the NFL celebrated its 100th Anniversary and part of that celebration included a list of the best games ever. The 2006 AFC Championship was #21 on the list, but #1 in my heart. You can find all of the top 10, and many other amazing games like the 2013 Wild Card game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Indianapolis Colts, on ESPN+.

The beauty of ESPN+ is that you don't have to be sitting on your couch watching your TV to enjoy these amazing NFL games. You can watch them anywhere including on your tablet or your smartphone. Pull up your phone while waiting in line and catch up on a play or two. Pause, rewind, and rewatch the great plays from each game, too, without having to wait for instant replay.

Also remember that you can combine your ESPN+ subscription with a subscription to Hulu and Disney+ for just $12.99 a month total, giving you the tools you need to distract the rest of your family while you watch football. There's also a bunch of other great content on ESPN+ to watch right now as well.
