Can you smell the nachos in the air? Oh yes, 'tis the season for stadium food and watching football in oversized hoodies. The crowd goes wild! You can't wait to cheer on your team. In fact, you've already started following the stats and are a few weeks into your fantasy league, too. Later on in the season, you're planning on going to a game and sitting right at center field. Whether you're a huge football fan or just joining the bandwagon for the game day snacks and a whole lot of fun, you need some good football captions to match your stadium pics. Those Friday night lights were meant for your feed.

Whenever football gets mentioned this time of year, I can't help but get nostalgic. High school football games come to mind, and cheering on the big teams in my college dorm with my best friends. Somebody always ordered wings for a particularly good game, and everybody broke out their jerseys and shouted at the television when the ref made a call against their team. Personally, I was there for the food — because watching football or attending a football game with your friends means nachos, potato skins, and lots of chips and dip. Yum! Yeah, that's all I need on a lazy Sunday.

This year, you may be going to the stadium or having a party with your friends at home. Over the years, you've watched your favorite players come and go, and sometimes get drafted to other teams. But, you've always stuck by your own "team" of pals. You couldn't imagine cheering on the quarterback with anyone else, which is why you're bound to post at least one picture on social media. Use one of these 37 clever football Instagram captions while you're at it, OK? Trust me, it'll be like your 'gram just kicked the perfect field goal.

Truth is, they want to get in the spirit of the season, too. So, they don't mind seeing you support your team. They just want to know that you're having a blast and a few plates of nachos deep. Seriously, I can't stress it enough — no matter what the board may say, you scored if you have some queso in the mix.
