Happy Friday, Wildcats! After a year off, Falvey Memorial Library is bringing back Weekend Recs, a blog dedicated to filling you in on what to read, listen to, and watch over the weekend. Jenna, a graduate assistant from the Communication department, scours the internet, peruses the news, and digs through book stacks to find new, relevant, and thought-provoking content that will challenge you and prepare you for the upcoming week.
With the Tennessee Titan’s defeat of the Buffalo Bills Monday night, a third of the NFL season has officially passed. And with that, there have been many exciting developments from a team ending their 20-game losing streak to the Eagles trading away a long-time player. Whether school has cut into your football watching time or you want to try to understand why people are fascinated by the sport, check out the recs below.
If you have 3 minutes… read about how the Jacksonville Jaguars ended their 20-game losing streak while playing in London.
If you have 17 minutes… watch former Philadelphia Eagle Tight End Zach Ertz’s emotional goodbye to Philly fans as he gets traded to the Arizona Cardinals.
If you have 51 minutes… and play Fantasy Football (or want to learn more about it), listen to the NFL’s NFL Fantasy Podcast where they combine in-depth stats and film study to help you win your league.
If you 1 hour and 31 minutes… listen to the NFL’s (other) podcast Around the NFL where they recap the biggest games and defeats of Week 6.
If you have about 8 hours… read NFL Football: A History of America’s New National Pastime by Richard C. Crepeau and available online in Falvey’s collection.
If you have all day Sunday… grab a seat on your couch, order wings and pizza, and watch a day of football. You can find the full Sunday schedule and where to stream the games here.
