Add NFL stats to any show with Comcast's new app

If you can’t get enough gridiron minutiae and analysis, Comcast has just unveiled Football Extras for its X1 sports app. It’ll work in a similar way to Comcast’s Baseball Extras, which was delivered to baseball stat fans earlier this summer. Armchair quarterbacks (and hardcore gamblers) will get info like injury reports, pre-game comparisons, fantasy league stats, win/loss probabilities and post-game analysis. Relevant stats will pop up during a telecast, or can be selected from a menu. You can even keep the app running while you watch other programs, in case you need to appease other family members. If you’ve got a Comcast X1 set-top box, you should see the app shortly.
