Fall is almost here! That means cooking on Sunday mornings (or Thursday/Saturday) and waiting for the big game to come on so you can start screaming at the TV screen like the maniac you truly are. This time of year everyone knows the key to any sports fans heart is a bucket of wings and some cold beverages. But who likes having only one flavor of wings to choose from?

I am going to share three of my favorite bone-in wings recipes that will make you the most popular player every Sunday!  & Don’t forget to stock up on some fan gear to show your support from the NFL Shop!

Garlic Parmesan Wings:
