Ten Coolest NFL Landmarks
University of Phoenix Stadium's exterior
You have to love a stadium that looks like a giant mobile home or something that came from outer space. The shiny metallic walls are supposed to be especially effective at reflecting the changing colors of the Arizona sky.
Ford Field's glass atrium
The impressive stadium has a six-story high glass wall that lets in natural light and gives the Lions' home a less depressing feel than most indoor stadiums.
Qwest Field's end zone
Lots of stadiums have open end zones, but the Seahawks have the most distinctive look with seats in front of a beautiful vista.
Gillette Stadium's Lighthouse
The 12-story lighthouse sits above one of the entrances to give the Patriots' stadium a New England feel. And right next to the lighthouse is a cool bridge you can walk on and check out the action.
Lambeau Field's turf
The grass at Lambeau Field became famous in the 1967 NFL Championship Game, when the Packers beat the Cowboys in frigid conditions on what became known as the "Frozen Tundra." The Packers have resisted the temptation to change Lambeau much. As a result, it's one of the premiere destinations in the NFL.
Soldier Field's columns
The new Soldier Field is a lot different than the old stadium, but the builders kept the classic Doric columns outside. Just the image of the classic architecture brings back memories of all the classic Bears games at this historic site.
McAfee Stadium's Black Hole
Sections 104 through 107 at the Raiders' home field is one of the scariest places in the NFL. The "Black Hole" features the craziest members of Raider Nation, a group of fans who remain rabid even when the team is down.
Cleveland Browns Stadium's Dawg Pound
The current version of the Pound is a bit tamer than the group that would throw things at opponents in the Browns' old Municipal Stadium. But the crazy bleacher section is still one of the most rabid areas in the NFL.
Raymond James' Buccaneer Cove
The 103-foot long pirate ship in the north end zone features a cannon that fires footballs and confetti when the Bucs score. Surrounding the ship is a concessions area that is supposed to resemble an old fishing village.
Texas Stadium's roof
Cowboys linebacker D.D. Lewis said the hole was there "so that God can watch his team." In reality, the stadium was slated to be indoors, but funding ran out before the project could be finished properly.
