The NFL season has started again, and it looks pretty weird. Stadiums are empty, Tom Brady's a Buc, and Stefon Diggs isn't taking passes from Kirk Cousins.

Fortunately, one thing that has changed in the drastically altered world is that you can still load the coffee table with wings, nachos, the tears of Jets fans, and every other game day classic. To that end, we've pulled together all the best deals you're going to find on Sundays during the games this season. That includes deals from restaurants like Applebee's and Chili's to pizza chains like Pizza Hut and Blaze to make sure you're eating like it's an ol' Sunday during the season.

Check out our continuously updated list of the deals below and be well fed as DeAndre Hopkins is playing with Kyler Murray.
