From Braylon to bratwurst ... 'This is NFL Network'


From Braylon (Edwards) to (your favorite) Bratwurst, NFL Network is everything football. That 24 hour a day, 365 day a year, 360 degree insider coverage of the NFL is illustrated in a pair of 30-second NFL Network commercials, "This is…" and "All business," which debuted nationally this month during NFL games on NBC, CBS, FOX and ESPN.

Featuring NFL players, coaches and owners (complete list below), the on-air spots give fans insight into the network's unparalleled access to the games, the personalities, the analysis, the business, the game within the game and life off the field.

Each commercial showcases players, coaches, staff and owners in various stages of their daily routine, conveying the apt message that NFL Network covers football from "Braylon to Bratwurst" or "A to Z" in a manner that rewards the most avid fan while still enjoyable to grandmas and grandkids.
