Wacky NFL Games Online

For football fans, and even those who only watch football when the Super Bowl rolls around, ‘NFL games online’ can only mean one thing – more football. Sure there are differences from game to game, but all of them are expected to follow certain basic guidelines: players expect to see familiar names, NFL teams, and most importantly some good ol’ football! However, not everyone seems to agree. There are some highly unconventional online games on the internet, parading as ‘NFL games online’. And the most interesting bit? They are all available on the NFL kids’ website, ‘NFL Rush’!

Here is a small sample of some of the wacky NFL games you can find on the internet.

1. Frankfurter Fling 2
This is exactly the kind of NFL game I was referring to. The main characters ‘Ish’ and ‘Ricky’ are people you’ve never heard of, nor are you expected to have heard of them. After all, they are simply hot dog sellers selling frankfurters at a football game. The point of the game is to see how far across the stadium you can launch your hot dog or soda can. By timing your clicks right, you can get an additional boost of energy mid-air. You can also get help from targets like rainbows and blimps to keep you soaring through the air for a few extra seconds.
The online NFL game ‘Frankfurter Fling 2’ was created as a sequel to ‘Frankfurter Fling’ owing to its immense popularity on the internet.

2. Galactic Rusherz
I must admit that the NFL connection is even more difficult to perceive in this online NFL game. Granted, the space ships seem to be prolate spheroids, and so are footballs. But that’s about it. The object of the game is to get your space ships safely through the field of asteroids. Using the arrow keys to move about and the space bar to fire laser beams, players try to get as far as they can without colliding into any of the asteroids.

3. Triangle Football
Here’s another wacky NFL game online! It’s you against the computer playing ‘football’. The NFL logo is your ball, and a table top is your football field. You and the computer take turns with a virtual hand to ‘kick’ the football across the table. Spills on the table can veer your calculated kicks off course, so it’s best to avoid them. The game controls may take some getting used to. In the meantime, the victory dance performed on behalf of the computer is quite entertaining to watch!

4. Jockstrap Slingshot
Erm, yes. That’s the actual name of the game. Joe is trapped in the laundry room, but luckily he’s found a laundry cart to move about in. However, there’s a barrage of falling objects and he must avoid them as best as he can. Players earn points by helping Joe use his jockstrap slingshot to shoot at the falling objects before they hit the ground.

5. Pizza Pie Perfection
In this online NFL game, you’ve been asked by the coach to help out at his brother’s pizza place. The experience is supposed to help you improve your footwork and hand-eye coordination skills. The coach’s instructions do seem bizarre, until you realize what the work involves. The chef randomly chops up toppings and tosses them behind his back. It’s up to you to be in the right place at the right time, get your pizza topped according to the customers’ orders, and serve them up in as little time as possible!

As bizarre as these online NFL games seem to be, they are admittedly quite fun to play. You can check out the NFL Rush website for these and other fun games for kids. Whether you’re looking for hard core football games or just some quick entertainment, you can be sure to find a game that suits your tastes on their website.
