Maybe look for an RSS reader and an NFL news feed?

I use PocketDay Professional on my BB and it has a front-page feature that has RSS feeds already pre-configured for you to use, some of those definitely for sports scores. Check out the Aftermarket Software forum and there will be some threads on it. It costs $19.99 after the initial trial period but it is WELL worth it.

Actually, PocketDay Professional (RSS doesn't come with the standard version) costs $35. Although I love PocketDay and highly recommend it, I'd look elsewhere if RSS was my primary interest. But if you're interested in the app for other reasons, the RSS feature is certainly nice to have.

Truth is, though, I haven't found any good feeds for NFL scores, though you would think RSS is an ideal medium for them. The major sports sites have SMS/email update services, but that's a limited option. The best solution appears to be using the BB brower to access a scoreboard. Haven't seen much progress on the java front lately.
