Best stadium to watch an NFL game (not including Lambeau and JerryWorld)

    Figure those are at the obvious top choices - but where to next? What other stadiums offer the best gameday experience?

    For a Steelers fan, Heinz Field is a great experience. If you are not a Steelers fan, you will probably hate it.

    I've heard Arrowhead is great, but that's when the Chiefs' fans had hope.

    I have been told that the Seahawks' home field (is it called Qwest?) is a really excellent stadium with good fans. Of course, you have to watch the Seahawks.
    It's not for every taste, like mine for instance, but there's no denying an Eagles game is an experience unto itself.

    We really enjoy Lucas Oil in Indy. Not a huge fan of domes, but they do retract it for quite a few games. Best part for me, as a married guy who brings the Mrs. (or the random nephew), are the intangibles.

    Good & plentiful, walkable locations for pre & post game food (or drinks). Very reasonable traffic patterns, post-game. Best of all, (IMO) it's the smallest percentage of *ssholes in the stands, of the numerous NFL stadium experiences we've had. Maybe I'm getting old & cranky.....but it's one of the few remaining places I'd actually rather go to the stadium, as opposed to just staying on my sofa.

    Food sucks, though.

    Is Jerry World actually a good place to watch a game? Haven't been there, but on TV the place looks as obnoxious as the man himself.

    Is there really a bad place to watch a game?

    I'm sure you remember Jets games at Shea.

    Didn't know that. Seems to me like every game has a dome "look" to it (no sunshine or shadows).

    Haven't seen a game in person in about 6 years. Monday night. Man behind us was whistling with the most ear-splitting tone I have ever encountered. Have no desire to go back. I have six animals at home. No need to sit with 70,000 animals at a stadium.

    Qwest Field in Seattle is very nice.

    FedEx Field in DC is horrible.

    Been there. Not impressed. It feels more like a movie theater than a football stadium.
