Female sports commentators have been growing in prominence and number over the years, and as we get ready to kick off week 1, here’s a look at all the female commentators.

Week 1 got off with a bang as the defending Super Bowl champs took on the Buffalo Bills in a high octane clash. The game was a little underwhelming as Buffalo cruised to a 31-10 win.

However, the important thing was that football was back. After months of inactivity, we finally had NFL football back on our TVs. That game was just the tip of the iceberg.

NFL Sunday features all the other games, and there are some great matchups to help get us right into the football feels. Bucs-Cowboys, Chiefs-Cardinals, Raiders-Chargers, and Chiefs-Cardinals are just some of the marquee games.

ESPN has no shortage of female hosts and analysts across the board. Sarah Barshop is an NFL Nation Reporter, Michelle Beisner-Buck is an NFL Features reporter, and most importantly Mina Kimes is the NFL analyst, senior writer, podcast host and television contributor.
