Where to Watch Football in Las Vegas

We still have a few more years before the Raiders come to town, but Las Vegas can still enjoy plenty of NFL action on the tube. The Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys and, whether you like ’em or not, New England Patriots are shaping up to be teams to keep your eye on this season. You just need to know the best places for watching a game.

Rebel Republic

Contrary to common misconception, this busy sports pub doesn’t hold particular loyalty to UNLV … or any other team, for that matter. But it does have a boss selection of over 50 draft beers, some of which will be $3–$5 during football games. And why bother with pitchers when you can have $15 Blue Moon beer towers at your table. But if you need another sort of “Rebel” fix, UNLV kicks off its football season September 2 at Sam Boyd Stadium. 3540 W. Sahara Ave., rebelrepubliclv.com

The Still

This vibrant sports bar at The Mirage always seems to have a TV in perfect position, no matter where you turn your head. It’s also offering a new breakfast menu at 9 a.m. for early rising football fans on Saturdays and Sundays, which includes a 35-ounce “Hail Mary” Bloody Mary. You may need more than one of those if you’re a fan of the New York Jets, the team with the lowest Vegas odds of reaching the Super Bowl this season. thestillvegas.com

Red Rock Resort Race & Sports Book

Station Casinos is promising to give away $750,000 in cash and prizes during its season-long Gridiron Glory contest for Boarding Pass members. Take advantage of it at Red Rock Resort Sports Book, where about 32 yards of wall is covered in video screens. It’s the best way to watch Jay Cutler make his big return from retirement as part of the Miami Dolphins. redrock.sclv.com

Three Angry Wives Pub

The New England Patriots are defending their Super Bowl championship this season, and the best place to cheer them on is at Three Angry Wives. The Boston-friendly Irish pub is all about the Pats and even serves a “Brady Brunch” with bottomless mimosas. Enjoy deals on regional bites like Wexford wings and tater skins while buying $5 raffle tickets to win items such as jerseys, custom T-shirts and gift cards. The money raised last season was put into upgrading the sound system and adding a new projection screen in the dining room. 8820 W. Charleston Blvd., Suite 105, threeangrywivespub.com

Sporting Life Bar

This southwest sports bar is the Las Vegas home to the Ohio State Buckeyes, but when it comes to the NFL, you’ll be able to catch any game at any given time on 26 televisions and two big screens. Listen in on individual speakers at each table and check out the latest betting information on a real-time electronic odds board. Sorry, no wagering allowed. But the menu is a foodie-friendly step up from traditional bar grub. 7770 S. Jones Blvd., sportinglifebar.com

Umami Burger, Beer Garden & Sports Book

Burgers, beer and betting at the SLS Las Vegas. What more do you need? How about half-off food for groups of 10 or more during fantasy draft parties (until September 6) and $25 Rolling Rock beer towers on game days? The very first Umami Burger opened eight years ago in Los Angeles—which is also the new home of the former San Diego Chargers this season. umamiburger.com
