NFL Football Stadiums: Pictures and Information

Pittsburgh Steelers: Heinz Field (Panoramic)

With the 2013 NFL season right around the corner, the Pittsburgh Steelers and every other team out there are chomping at the bit to get on the field in real-time. The National Football League is a constantly changing entity in which tradition and innovations to America’s favorite sport are coupled together (in sometimes inharmonious nature). This is evident in the vast diversity of the stadiums in which the real life American gladiators battle. Some of these fields such as Soldier Field and Lambeau Field are almost as old as the game itself while newly built stadiums like the giant AT&T Stadium in Dallas incorporates the latest in technology and architectural innovations. Whether you prefer the nostalgia or high-tech, it’s really all about supporting your team.
