Superbowl Sunday is officially upon us. Time to break out the beer and gourmet nachos and prepare get serious when Katy Perry belts it out during the halftime show. After Queen Madonna in 2012, Beyonce in 2013, and Bruno Mars in 2014, Ms. Perry has big shoes to fill. Is she up for the challenge? We’ll see.
Then, of course, there’s the football game. (Oh yeah, that.) This year’s main event will be a standoff between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. We don’t know nothin’ about either team but that’s what Instagram is for. To help get you get in spirit, we’ve done a roundup of some of the hottest NFL stars today. We included a lot of players who never made it to the Super Bowl because in our eyes, well, they appeal to our eyes. In fact, only one made it this year, QT Tom Brady (he plays for the patriots.)
Of course, with so much talent and so much sexiness, our list of faves is constantly changing. Please suggest your own in comments.

The San Francisco 49er’s quarterback captured our attention (and our hearts) when he posed completely naked for ESPN’s Body Issue in 2013 and we haven’t looked away since.
How can you not find the New York Giants’ wide receiver cute? He’s got those dreamy eyes, that adorable gap between his front teeth, and he’s always smiling. (And let’s not forget that he knows how to rock a sombrero.)
Okay, okay. So he may not be conventionally attractive, but the New Orleans Saints’ quarterback is a great family man and a real class act and he boasts a huge fan following, so we’re including him on our list.
The 6’4, 225-pound All-American New England Patriots’ quarterback knows just how to get our man juices flowing as demonstrated by this shot from his GQ photo spread. Plus, people say he can throw.
There’s something kind of adorkable about 34-year-old Eli Manning. And we’re not the only ones who feel this way. There’s an entire Tumblr page called Eli Manning is Sexy dedicated exclusively to celebrating the New York Giants’ quarterback.
The 6’0, 203-pound Detroit Lions’ running back is so darn cute we almost forgive him for dating Kim Kardashian.
Last, but certainly not least, is Kenny Vacarro. Between his hot, tatted up body, boyish face, and mad playing skills on the field, the 23-year-old New Orleans Saints’ safety is the perfect recipe for delicious.
