NFL Preseason Week 1 Cheerleaders
NFL Cheerleaders: Preseason Week One
NFL football is back. The touchdowns, sacks and interceptions are back. The quarterbacks are back and the running backs are back.
And so are the cheerleaders. Don't forget about the cheerleaders. I know -- like I need to remind you of that.
When the NFL opened its preseason schedule in full this weekend, we saw most of the teams in true preseason form. There was sloppy play all around from penalties to turnovers as we have come to expect out of the first preseason games, but the cheerleaders were at the top of their games.
Always the true professionals, they don't need warmup games to get ready for the big stage. They were ready to go and they brought it.
Cheerleaders make the watching football, which is already pretty much the best thing around, even better. I know, it's really not possible to get better than football on our televisions after so many months without it, but they managed to pull it off.
From Tennessee to Philadelphia, they came to play and were in midseason form from the start. They don't need any glorified practices to be ready for the fans, and brought regular season game speed performances in week 1 of the preseason.
While the teams on the field were sitting starters and trotting out backups by the start of the second quarter, the cheerleaders never took a break.
Enjoy these pictures of some of the cheerleaders that graced the field during the first weekend of preseason games for the NFL.
