The new interactive GAME CENTERgives football fans a complete look at every NFL game before, during and after the game.

The Drive Chart offers both a top view and a side view so users can visualize the plays as they unfold with horizontal arrows indicating runs and arcs indicating passes. In addition, the Drive Chart illustrates whether the game is outside or in a dome and if it is day or night giving fans a full experience.

"We continue to enhance the features to bring fans more NFL news, analysis, information and highlights than any other site on the internet," said LAURA GOLDBERG, general manager of NFL Online. "Our exclusive 3-D Drive Chart is a whole new experience for fans to follow and relive the action for all the NFL games. In addition, we have embraced social media and created new products and places on NFL.com for fans to interact with other passionate NFL fans."

Beneath the dynamic Drive Chart, Game Center offers fans multiple ways to experience the game. Fans can track game information including the current drive and top performers and dive deeper with the analyze tab, which provides graphical statistical comparisons of the two teams. Fans can discuss the game with other fans in real-time as well as watch related video content such as footage from previous games, interviews, or NFL Network analysis.
