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
