How To Play NFL Word Fumble

  • Step 1: Head over to Pro Football Network to launch NFL Word Fumble! Make sure to bookmark the NFL Wordle Game and play as often as you like on both desktop and mobile. 

  • Step 2: Familiarize yourself with the rules. Wordle and NFL Word Fumble are very similar, but PFN’s version focuses solely on the last names of NFL players. The rules, however, are the same. Your goal is to guess the correct NFL player’s last name within six chances.

  • Step 3: Start by picking any player’s last name. It can be your favroite player or maybe even one that you dislike. The position doesn’t matter, you can select and name from kickers to quarterbacks. You then type the letters using the keyboard or select them from a given set of options.

  • Step 4: Once you have entered the first guess, NFL Word Fumble will provide you with some coaching. Similar to a huddle on the sidelines with the head coach, the NFL Wordle Game will let you know if you are on the right trajectory.

    • Correct Letters in Correct Positions: If you guessed a letter correctly and it's in the right position, the game will indicate this by highlighting the cell in a green color.

    • Correct Letters in Wrong Positions: If you guessed a correct letter but it's in the wrong position, the game will indicate this with an orange color.

    • Incorrect Letters: If you guessed a letter that is not present in the player's last name, the game will indicate this with a blue indicator.

  • Step 5: Once you have received your feedback, you then need to adjust your consequent guesses based on the colors provided. 

  • Step 6: The rest of the NFL Wordle Game is simple. Try to narrow down the possibilities with each iteration and utilize the feedback to make informed decisions. Not every guess can be a certified touchdown, so remember to take your time and strategically choose your letter.

  • Step 7: Win or lose, continue guessing until you either guess the correct last name within the given number of chances (six) or run out of guesses. If you successfully guess the last name, you win the game. If not, you lose, and the game may reveal the correct answer.
