It’s that time of year again: the kids are back at school and NFL football is back in action. While it’s not a stretch to find a bar showing the Redskins or Baltimore Ravens, plenty of other teams have a place (or two) to call home.

If you don’t see your team on this list, don’t worry. Many of these bars—as well as others like Crystal City Sports Pub and First Down Sports Bar—take large party reservations for groups of fans and show multiple teams.

Baltimore Ravens: Caddies Bar and Grill
4922 Cordell Ave., Bethesda
If you can’t make it to Baltimore for a game, Caddies has more than 50 screens to view the action. The Bar also offers brunch from 11 AM to 3:30 PM on the weekends with $20 bottomless mimosas, bloody Marys, and screwdrivers.

Buffalo Bills: Grand Central
2447 18th St. NW
The Bills Mafia will feel right at home at this Adams Morgan hangout, which is decked out in Buffalo sports paraphernalia. On Sundays, the bar offers happy hour from noon to 5 PM with deals like $5 domestic drafts and $6 house wine and craft drafts.

Carolina Panthers: Mission Navy Yard
1221 Van St., SE
This Mexican bar and restaurant may face Nationals Park but Panthers fans call it home during the season. On game day, Mission offers $8 wings, $6 rail drinks, and $8 Mission margaritas among other deals.

Chicago Bears: Union Pub
201 Massachusetts Ave., NE
The Bears offense may have gotten to a less than auspicious start to the season but that’s no reason to despair (yet). Commiserate with your fellow Packers-hating compatriots over $15 Goose Island pitchers and massive $17.98 platters of wings.

Cincinnati Bengals: The Bottom Line
1716 I St., NW
The Bengals are switching it up this year after three straight losing seasons with new head coach Zac Taylor at the helm. With deals like $6 chili-cheese fries and $12 Miller Lite pitchers, fans can save their game day jitters for the on-field play.

Cleveland Browns: Fadó Irish Pub
808 7th St., NW
While this Irish pub is better known for European “football,” Browns crowds—and the official DC Browns Backers Club—have been known to frequent the bar. Bonus: Fadó opens early for soccer on the weekends and offers $15 bottomless mimosas and bloody Marys during brunch.

Dallas Cowboys: Parlay Sports Lounge
2321 18th St., NW
No need to guess where this bar’s loyalty lies – if you couldn’t tell from the decor, Cowboys Nation makes it loud and clear. Expect beer buckets and wings when you stop by.

Denver Broncos: Stoney’s P Street
1433 P St., NW
With Joe Flacco at the helm of the Bronco’s offense this season, fans are looking for a turnaround this year. Stoney’s is the perfect place to follow  the action, offering $14 Bud Light pitchers and $10 “pig pile” nachos.

Detroit Lions: Capitol Lounge

Creatively named dishes like Dancakes Orlovsky and Calvin Johnson’s Wings are telling of the team loyalty here. For drinks, the bar offers $4 Bud Light, $5 Goose Island, and $6 Bell’s.

Green Bay Packers: Hamilton’s Bar & Grill
233 2nd St., NW
With Leinenkugel on tap, tots, and cheese curds galore, this bar brings a little taste of Wisconsin to the District. Packers fans should feel right at home on game day as the brick space rocks plenty of green and yellow.

Jacksonville Jaguars: Penn Quarter Sports Tavern
639 Indiana Ave., NW

Kansas City Chiefs: Blackfinn
1620 I St., NW
At Blackfinn downtown, Chiefs fans can take on $30 Dos Equis towers or grab some totchos and wings while they watch reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes work his magic.

New York Giants: Across the Pond
1732 Connecticut Ave., NW
This Dupont Circle hangout has a 55-cent wings offer that’s tough to beat, but you can also bundle 20 wings and a pitcher of ATP Pilsner for $20. Patriots fans are also known to stop by, but no worries – the bar will play the sound on all games for both teams.

New York Jets: Irish Channel
500 H St., NW
While Jets fans pray for the USWNT’s Carli Lloyd to take over for their kicker, they can enjoy a pint at this cozy Irish joint. Watching with a group? The pub offers $5 mimosas, bloody Marys, and screwdrivers on weekends from 9 AM to 3 PM.
