As part of a 4 week trip through northeastern US this fall (leefpeeping is the primary goal of the trip) we also want to visit an American football game in the weekend of 13-14 october, which fits best in our itinerary. We've narrowed it down to three options, 1 college game and 2 NFL games:
Pittsburgh Panthers vs Louisville Cardinals
Cleveland Browns vs Cincinnati Bengals
Philadelphia Eagles vs Detroit Lions
As outsiders to the game we are looking for a typical 'American' sports experience. For us that would be with cheerleaders and marching band. The fineese of the game itself is of less importance. I understand Cleveland Browns has neither of them. Philadelphia Eagles has cheerleaders, Pittsburgh Panthers has both, so we are leaning toward the latter.
What kind of experience could we expect at a college football game compared to a NFL game (besides the tickets being much cheaper at a college game LOL)?
