The sports bar scene in Las Vegas is as legendary as Drew Pearson’s last-second Hail Mary catch that sent the Dallas Cowboys to the 1975 NFC title game. The city boasts two of the world’s largest sportsbooks, and in the offseason, two more impressive additions were added to the roster: the gleaming Raiders Tavern & Grill at the M Resort and Stadia at Caesars Palace, complete with leather-wrapped VIP “viewing domes” shaped like vintage football helmets. Loyal fans of a particular franchise can also find their people at one of the dozens of team-dedicated, NFL-sanctioned bars across the valley. So, no matter which team you’re cheering for, here’s a look at some of the most spirited places to catch a game. — Sarah Morgan
