NFL Teams Reimagined as Novels

Posted by Quirk Books Staff

Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can't lose (my page in this book). 

With autumn comes crisp winds, seasonal hot beverages, and the fiery frenzy of football season. Now the realms of literature and NFL football don't collide often—one notable exception being the Baltimore Ravens, who are named after Edgar Allen Poe's famous poem. Inspired by this fact, we thought, what if it was the other way around? What if novels took their cues from NFL team names? Here's what happens when you bring novels and the NFL to the line of scrimmage: 

On Wings of Philadelphia Eagles by Ken Follett



New England Patriot Games by Tom Clancy



The Old Man and the Seattle Seahawks by Ernest Hemingway



The Atlanta Maltese Falcons by Dashiell Hammett



Island of the Miami Dolphins by Scott O'Dell



The Detroit Lions, the Witch, and the Wardrobe  by C. S. Lewis
