The Upshaw home, owned by the widow of NFL player Gene Upshaw, is built for outdoor living.

It’s kickoff weekend for the NFL, and football fans across the country are gathering at stadiums and in their homes to cheer on their favorite teams. If you want to go beyond the game and see what the pros live like off the field, here’s your chance. The homes of a former NFL coach and a former NFL player are on the market with Long & Foster Real Estate agents, and you can peek inside them here.

In Lexington, Virginia, you’ll find the home of Bobby Ross, a former NFL coach who led the San Diego Chargers to the Super Bowl and the Detroit Lions to the playoffs. Listed for $575,000, the five-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom home sits on nearly 4 acres of land against a backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The home offers an abundance of open and airy living space—perfect for entertaining. In fact, Bobby Ross and his wife, Alice, hosted many parties there, including gatherings for up to 75 of his friends and former teammates from the nearby Virginia Military Institute.

Just outside Washington, D.C., in Great Falls, Virginia, is another former player’s residence—a $1.995 million property owned by the widow of Gene Upshaw, an NFL Hall of Fame player for the Oakland Raiders. The five-bedroom, seven-and-a-half bath home combines three architectural styles for a uniquely modern, yet comfortable feel. Its brightly lit rooms and open spaces are ideal for gatherings. The home also maximizes its outdoor living space with dining areas, an expansive pool deck and several patios.

Both homes have plenty of space for outdoor entertaining, so you can set up the big screen outside and watch the games with your family and friends. Check them out in the slideshow below!
