Gamebooks are official reports published by each team right after a game, which include not just play-by-play accounts but box score, individual statistics, starting lineups, and other information about each game. They aren't always 100% accurate, because they are an immediate record of what's taken place, but it's the primary source which provides a starting point for all subsequent research.
Some of these gamebooks were published by the NFL at their website. Some of them have been provided in digital format by the teams themselves. The vast majority of them began as hard copies, hand written and type-written pages which have been scanned and digitized one at a time. For games prior to 1960, most of our PBP, lineups, and other game information has come from newspapers. Our respect for copyright prevents us from posting those accounts here, but we'll make them available to researchers on request.
Challenge yourself by playing great games like bingo during football's off-season .
