The TV network's free iPhone/iPod Touch, Android, and BlackBerry apps, developed by CBS Interactive, deliver live NFL scores and stats, play-by-play and breaking news combined with standings, videos and commentary from experts and pundits. That's perfect for keeping track of your NFL team, but the apps also offer tools for fantasy football devotees, allowing you to set lineups and add or drop players instantly.

After a summer of anticipation, training camp reports, recruiting scandals, endless pre-season games and the annual Brett Favre will he-won't he announcement, football season is at long last upon us. With mobile apps now mainstream, the football experience extends well beyond the stadium, sports bar or couch -- the game comes with you wherever you are. For hardcore fans, this is nirvana! You can keep tabs on the latest injury reports and recruiting rumors while watching video of your team at the same time you're listening to your college fight song, tweaking your fantasy lineup and picking out a seat in the stadium for next weekend while placing an order for a giant foam finger. And if someone calls, don't worry; you've got your team ringtone ready to roll. From Death Valley to The Big House, Texas Stadium to the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field, are you ready for some football? It's kickoff time.
