The NFL will be employing modified Surface tablets on the sidelines of games beginning this season. As part of an existing deal with Microsoft, the NFL will deploy Surface Pro 2 tablets beginning with the Hall of Fame game today. The tablets, modified externally with a thick blue case, will be used to review plays instantly. Each sideline will have a temperature-controlled cart of Surface tablets, which will remain locked up at the stadium when not in use during games. Additionally, the tablets will be locked down to prevent cheating, according to Engadget:

NFL Mobile is a feature rich Windows Phone 8 app designed to keep you up to date with all the Pro Football action. One of the key features for NFL Mobile is the ability to manage your NFL.com fantasy football teams directly from your Windows Phone.  

The app was recently updated to version 8.1.0.12 and while there's not an official change log, our tipsters are pointing to fixes with the Fantasy Football features that were a little buggy on release.  It is our understanding that the update now fixes bugs that prevented you from switching players, managing lineups and held back other key Fantasy Football features.

The middle of August is when the NFL released their official app for Windows Phone 8. NFL Mobile was a very welcomed app for fans of American football around the world. Then came the announcement that official NFL Fantasy Football apps would be coming to Windows 8, Xbox and Windows Phone. We’ve seen the Windows 8 and Xbox versions and they’re pretty darn good, but the Windows Phone version was absent from the Store. Today, the official NFL Football Fantasy 2013 app for Windows Phone finally comes to the Store and is unfortunately a disappointment.

Today, the 2013 NFL season gets underway. The opening game will see defending Super Bowl XLVII champions Baltimore Ravens up against the Denver Broncos. Both teams met in the playoffs last year, but only one went on to become champion. Should be an exciting game that helps set the tone for this season. What better way to enjoy the 94th regular season of the National Football League than with companion apps on your Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 device. Oh, and your Xbox 360 is getting in on the action too. Ready? Break!

Microsoft’s Windows 8 app store has yet to be a juggernaut of variety and applications. We had previously heard that the company mentioned this holiday season as a goal date to bring a majority of popular apps to the platform. Yesterday at Build 2013 in San Francisco, Microsoft’s loveable CEO Steve Ballmer stated that Facebook, Flipboard, and NFL apps will be arriving soon.

Test your Gridiron knowledge with NFL Trivia

With the Super Bowl just days away, many will begin touting their vast knowledge of the NFL. NFL Trivia is a Windows Phone app that will test that knowledge and may give you a leg up on the competition.

The trivia game is laid out about as simply as you can get with two modes of play, Simple and Trivia. Simple Mode presents you with ten questions and awards you points for each correct answer. Trivia Mode also offers you points for each correct answer but has an endless string of questions.

NFL Trivia may not have many bells and whistles but it isn't a bad test of your NFL knowledge.

Last week Microsoft asked you to vote for which Windows Phone commercial from NFL Quarterback Cam Newton should air during the NFC Championship pre-game show. You had the choice of four endings to the commercial using a different catch phrase at the end.

The "Peanut Butter, Jelly" version, shown above was the runner-up and will air during both the NFC and AFC Championship games.

If you're the type who would rather tune in this Sunday, January 21st, during the pre-Game show and see which version won, don't stray any further. If you can't stand the anticipation, you can find the winning version after the break.

Still think they should have had a War Eagle version....

Although Windows Phone 8 is now available (for some users at least), the big advertising campaign has yet to begin. The good news is that’s going to start this weekend, specifically during Sunday’s NFL games, which we think should get a lot of eyes.

The ad they will be using is the one that premiered during the big Windows Phone announcement at the end of October. It features numerous people of every stripe and color talking about how their Windows Phone is their own, focusing on the phrase the smartphone “reinvented around you”.

Microsoft has had mixed success with advertising in the past but we think this commercial is quite effective and should raise interest from those looking for something new. We should also point out that this is just the initial phase of advertising, so expect more things in the coming weeks.

Windows Phone Central's Football App Roundup

Football season is upon us and there are plenty of Windows Phone apps to help bring all the gridiron action to our phones. Sure, you have sports apps such as ESPN and Score Mobile that will bring your all the scores, news and videos from the sports world but what about those that just focus on football?

We've collected a handful of apps that place football center stage. We've got a few professional football apps and a few college oriented apps for those who prefer the NCAA over the NFL. We even toss in a football app for those who see football in a different light.

As always, if you have a favorite football app that didn't make it to the roundup, sound off in the comments section and share.

Are you ready, for some Football? Well are ya?

An update to Football Pro '12 (formerly known as NFL Pro '12) has been updated over at the Windows Phone Marketplace in preparation for the upcoming season. While the Marketplace title stills reflects the Football Pro '12 name, the version 2.0 update takes the app to Football Pro '13.

Confused? So were we but apparently it takes a while before the Marketplace will reflect the name change for the app. What you're looking for is version 2.0. Once you run the Football Pro, you'll see things setup for the 2013 season within the app itself.  Even though the title is dated '12.
