What's the best NFL stadium to eat at? Hands down Lambeau Field, if you ask the hosts of CBS' Thursday Night Football.
"I've got four games at Green Bay this year [and] I'm already training," Jim Nantz tells us in our video. "Brats, sauerkraut, [we have] all the fixin's up there in the back of our both. I like to eat while I broadcast. It's a little known secret I mute my mic and I let Phil Simms just go."

Thursday Night Football is finally here and before CBS' big premiere, we've asked the commentators, analysts and anchors to share memories of their very first football game.
"I was 14-years-old and my dad took me to Pitt stadium where the Steelers used to play," Bill Cowher tells us in the video below. "I remember John Henry Johnson and 'Cannonball' Butler — I just loved those names — and I remember watching what those guys did on the sidelines ... in between plays."
CBS is getting ready to beef up its football coverage, but without two of its longtime correspondents.
Former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino and former Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens tight end Shannon Sharpe will not return for CBS' NFL pre-game show, The NFL Today, next season. The duo will be replaced by ex-Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez, who just...

We are only in the second episode of The Biggest Loser's 12th season and it is already super intense!

The NFL may be in a lockout, but some of the league's biggest stars joined Taylor Lautner to spoof the situation for Funny or Die.
In a mock movie trailer for Field of Dreams 2: Lockout, Lautner plays an Iowa corn farmer who, just like Kevin Costner in the original film, hears a voice say, "If you build it, they will come." After creating a football field in the middle of the farm, real NFL players including Tony Gonzalez, Ray Lewis, Shawne Merriman, DeSean Jackson and Dwight Dweeney show up for the big game.

We're finally allowed to announce the judges on Oprah's Big Give, ABC's philanthropic reality road show premiering March 2 at 9 pm/ET. "Naked Chef" Jamie Oliver, NFL player Tony Gonzalez and Chris Rock's wife, Malaak Compton-Rock all of whom are known for their charity work will choose the weekly winners among 10 contestants crossing the country "making dreams come true" by giving away hundreds of thousands of dollars to "unsuspecting strangers." Says producer Ellen Rakieten, "We wanted to pick people who have obvious credentials for their judging." Not that Oprah herself won't show up; we hear that she's in five or six of the episodes, usually presenting some kind of twist or surprise in the game. Alas, there is bad news for those of you hoping to be a recipient of the Big Give's largesse: Season 1 is already in the can. Ileane Rudolph
