Plot Synopsis

Each week during the National Football League (NFL) season, hosts of this once-a-week in-studio program review the games of the previous weekend, break down upcoming featured contests, interview players and coaches, and reveal behind-the-scenes information -- all while providing expert insight about all aspects of the game. After airing on HBO for 31 seasons, the network announced in February 2008 that the series would be sacked, but Showtime picked up the series only four months later so that the program could continue its run. In May 2012, Showtime declined the opportunity to extend Warren Sapp's contract, and INSIDE THE NFL was manned by three hosts through the 2013-2014 season (Season 37), which Showtime premiered on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT, with James Brown, Cris Collinsworth, and Phil Simms reviewing the final week of pre-season games and previewing Week 1 of the NFL season. INSIDE THE NFL returned for its 38th season overall and 7th season on Showtime on Tuesday, September 2, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT. In addition to airing on a new night -- Tuesdays at 9pm through February 4, 2015 -- this series welcomed former 12-year NFL veteran safety Ed Reed, current Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall, and Boomer Esiason, who joined Phil Simms as analysts, along with new host Greg Gumbel. Plus, NFL Network re-airs the show on Wednesdays (9 pm ET/6pm PT) throughout the season. Season 39 of INSIDE THE NFL premiered on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on Showtime, with new host Adam Schein joining Phil, Boomer and Brandon for the show's eighth season on Showtime, providing exclusive NFL highlights and expert analysis of every game. Season 40 of INSIDE THE NFL premiered on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on Showtime. This season's cast features the return of three-time Sports Emmy Award winning host James Brown alongside longtime INSIDE THE NFL on SHOWTIME analyst and two-time Super Bowl champion Phil Simms, NFL MVP and four-time Pro Bowler Boomer Esiason and N.Y. Jets' wide receiver Brandon Marshall, the first active NFL player to appear as a weekly analyst on a national television series.
