The things that draw fans to the NFL can be pretty similar to what draws viewers to their favorite TV shows.
Fans want to root for their favorite team members or characters. The fans want a compelling plot line to keep us excited each week. At the very least, they need a reason to keep watching the next week's game or episode.
With that in mind, fans of the NFL game find themselves at a unique time in the game's history, particularly in terms of passing offense. Yardage has shot through the roof, and long-standing records are dropping quickly. Not every team is perfect (looking at you, Indianapolis Colts), but their work on the field today will resonate long after the next generation has taken over.
This period of productivity is pretty comparable to the kinds of sitcoms produced through the 1990s. While not every effort was perfect, the decade produced a large number of memorable shows that continue to resonate among TV viewers today.
