Maybe you’re stuck in a cab or at work, late for a Super Bowl party. If you’re a customer of Verizon, Charter, AT&T U-Verse, or another provider with access to the NFL Network, don’t fret, as you can always watch the game live through the NFL Mobile app. If you’re not, the app still lets you watch highlights, read stories, and follow up-to-the-minute scoring. You can also track league and team leader statistics from major categories and browse the NFL Shop store, should you want to pick up some memorabilia.

Snacks and food are important, but getting enough beer for the gang is vital. Thankfully, you don’t even have to leave your house to do it — Drizly allows you to shop for alcohol straight from your couch. The app’s database includes tons of local liquor stores in over 70 cities in North America, so as long as you’re in a relatively large city, you’re covered for alcohol during the Super Bowl.

Tunity

You might be heading to a sports bar or Super Bowl party to watch the big game, but if you’re a big fan you probably want to hear the action, too — and crowded places like a bar aren’t the best for being able to hear properly. That’s where Tunity comes in. The app basically allows you to scan any TV in the area, after which you’ll be able to hear a live feed of the audio straight through your phone. Side note — the app is great for other situations, too, like the TV at the gym, watching if your roommate is asleep, and so on.

Odds

Odds App

Big game, big bets. There is always money on the line in the Super Bowl, on just about everything from the coin toss to the final score. Even if you don’t have money riding on the game, the insights provided for gamblers can give you an interesting look at the game. Plus you can see win probabilities, which Packers fans will tell you means nothing—even when it’s at 99 percent with 5 minutes remaining.

Thuuz

Thuuz App

When there are over 100 million people watching the same thing at the same time, you can feel like you’re being left out if you aren’t up on what’s happening. Thuuz is your loophole for catching the good moments without watching the whole game. It will alert you to the big plays and you can spend the rest of the game watching the Puppy Bowl.
