Get ready for the NFL season with these great BlackBerry 10 apps

The NFL season is almost here! Time to get your game on!

By Adam Zeis on 30 Aug 2013 03:30 pm EDT

The countdown is on until the 2013 NFL season kicks off and what better way to stay in the loop than right from your BlackBerry? Thankfully there are a bunch of great apps that can keep you in the know all season long no matter what team you support. From live scores to highlight videos to instant alerts - you'll be covered from all angles.

Check out our list of the top NFL apps for your BlackBerry 10 device.

NFL Mobile

NFL Mobile is the official end all, be all app for football fans. This one packs in breaking news, highlights, scores standings and much more. If you're a Verizon customer you can upgrade to get access to premium RedZone features as well. NFL Mobile even has news alerts so you can stay informed no matter what you're doing. Best of all? Totally free.

While theScore is one of our favorite all-around sports apps, it comes in handy during the NFL season as well. We love the customizable push alerts for games and teams that alert for news, scores, touchdowns, game start and much more. You can add your favorite teams to keep tabs on all the happenings and check out standings, scores, player reports and much more.

CBS Sports

This is another go-to sports app for BlackBerry. With legendary CBS coverage you can follow your team all the way through the season. CBS Sports brings news, standings, scores and game recaps all in one place. The app has a great design and runs buttery smooth so you can find what you need in an instant.

mySchedule NFL 2013

While this one won't give you scores or stats, it does ensure you never miss a game. You can view your teams full schedule for the 2013 season and even export it to your calendar. The truly hardcore will want to take advantage of the ability to set reminders for games to never miss a beat.

ESPN ScoreCenter

The ESPN ScoreCenter app isn't the most feature-packed of all the sports apps, but it still gets the job done. ESPN is known for their sports coverage and the app has plenty of it. You can follow your favorite teams and get personalized scores, video highlights, breaking news and even follow live games. Parts of the app are a bit rough around the edges but it's free, so if you're an ESPN fan this one does a decent job.

Get ready for the NFL season with these great BlackBerry 10 apps


Hey Adam, do you get ESPN Score Center to work on your Q10? All i get since day 1 has been the dreaded blue circle. By the looks of the reviews on BB World most people get the same. Maybe because I’m on 10.1??

Where is the ESPN fantasy Football app blackberry? It's only rated the number one FF app, just another great app we don't have!

This is the first time I have gotten an unavailable for this device message. Hmm z10 stl-3

Can we please get a good all around sports app? I don't think it's too much to ask. NFL Mobile and MLB at bat are legit though.

Hate to go off topic but i just opened my BBM to join your Cowboys channel and i dont even have a channels option on my Q10, been scouring Crackberry and I dont know if it’s because I’m not on 10.2? anyone else her on a TMobile Q10 that gets a channels option in BBM?

It's a pathetic excuse for an app. Not even one update was issued for it. Might be time to get one out...

The Score app is a hunk of shit. Multiple problems such as lag and crashing.

There's a reason why it barely has 3 stars in BlackBerry World

How the hell can you forget Bleacher Report?! ESPN app is complete shit by the way.

BlackBerry Z10, CB10.

Check the sideloading forum. There are posts there for the ESPN 2013 FFL mobile app. I posted one also.

Got the NFL app sideloaded also. You guys have to learn to sideload apps!! You'd have the best phone and all the necessary apps! Just do a little reading on the Crackberry sideloading forums!

The ESPN Score Center app is beyond useless and frankly I'm disgusted that it would even be mentioned! However, the sideloaded Android app is pretty good.

The NFL Mobile app is hands down the best though, although recently mine has permanently had the "Spark" icon on it but there are no unread notifications :s.

Not an nfl fan. Running the ball up the gut three times then punting isn't entertainment to me. But if I had to choose it would be Chicago Bears.

I find most of these apps aren't very good. Love the info and scores in the NFL app, but it constantly has an asterisk saying there is updated info when there isn't. The Score doesn't load up half of the time and gets authentication errors as well as some of the tabs not loading anything. The ESPN app is terrible and has issues loading. CBS Sports isn't bad.

I forgot to mention (couldn't edit my post on CB app when commenting on a posted story) that they should all look at the NHL, MLB, and PGA apps if they want to see great apps that actually work well. Going to have to keep up on scores through ESPN on my browser--still works the best.

I also don't think Verizon supports Red Zone for BB10. My NFL app is connected to my Verizon account, and I don't see it. Also, I just saw a Verizon Red Zone commercial, and it only showed availability for Android and Apple.

All I'm looking for is when this NFL app is going to be available in Canada. I have Fantasy team through the NFL site and just want to keep track of it on my phone.

I can't download NFL Mobile in CANADA !
The score freezes my z10 locks it right up I deleted it. Bleacher Report is a decent app for your list.

No ESPN fantasy app and a Score Center app that doesn't work. Yet another reason why BlackBerry is being left in the dust.
