Fresh Android Apps for Sep. 13: Sporting News Pro Foootball, Sunday Ticket, Zombie Road

by Ian Black

The second week of NFL football is underway and the pigskin apps are building to a fever pitch. Check out the update of Sporting News Pro Football or DIRECTV’s Sunday Ticket for Tablets for your medicine. When it’s time for cleaning up the streets, try Zombie Road.

Sporting News Pro Football update (Free)

Forget your local newspaper, the Sporting News delivers, well, sports news and that’s it. No tedious non-sports news, no weather, no comic strips, nothing but sports.

Find NFL news, standings, leaderboards, and real-time game scores. Focus in on your favorite team and follow it moment by moment.

This update delivers not only all the info on the new season of the NFL but also a new user experience.

Sunday Ticket for Tablets (Free, requires subscription)

DIRECTV delivers the football goodness to Android tablets.

Their NFL Sunday Ticket package lets you watch any game in the NFL over your satellite dish and this app does the same for your Android tablet.

Need highlights? Watch the reel from an individual game or every game all at once. View the scores, status, and schedule of every game in the NFL no matter whether the game is over, in progress, or not yet begun. In you’re interested in individual player’s – perhaps for fantasy football – you can get up-to-the-minute stats on the team member of your choice.

Zombie Road (Free)

Zombies create mess. Unfortunately, in this game, you’re in charge of cleanup.

Shoot zombies, manage your weapon inventory – including axe, shovel, handgun, shotgun, and rocket launcher – and watch your health. Get exhausted and you’ll be lunch before you know it.

People either love or hate the graphics of this game. I think they’re delicious.
