Cue a slew of football movies to psych us up — and keep us pumped — through the entire NFL season. These films, which span the gamut from comedies to dramas to documentaries, all capture the blood, sweat, and, yes, even tears inherent in the most American sport imaginable. No matter which one you choose to watch tonight, you’re headed for a touchdown.
