Being a sports fan can take a toll on the human body. We live and we die by the final score on the field and when the score is in our favor, we are all smiles and buy shots for the bar. When the score isn’t in our favor, we are miserable, friendships end, and the world comes to a quick end. There are things that happen on and off the field that alters the way we look at teams and the players, but nothing stops us from watching all the action.
There are certain things that help us all keep that smile on our faces despite the final score. One of the best things about watching sports on television even when your favorite team is losing is when the games are such blowouts that the networks decide to use their valuable time to show off the very attractive wives and girlfriends of players on and off the field. For some, it is like another pastime. These women, whether they are life partners, girlfriends, or wives, are known simply as WAGs. The term itself began to gain prominence during the 2006 World Cup and while it was widely used for international soccer, is now used for all sports.
Among those sports in the United States is football and the National Football League is the most popular league and is filled with WAGs that make men around the country drool. These are the kind of women that make you feel like the players never really lose, because they have these beauties to go home with every time. Here are the 20 hottest WAGs in the NFL today.

20 Sarah Hinton Celek
The last name may sound familiar, but unless you live on the west coast or are a fan of the San Francisco 49ers, you might not know that the Celek we are talking about is tight end Garrett. The younger brother of the more-known tight end for the Philadelphia Eagles is married to one of the hottest WAGs in the sport. Garrett has not had a great career with just eight receptions for 142 yards, but he is a winner in my book. Sarah Hinton is a former model that graduated from Michigan State and was Miss July in the Hooters Calendar in 2012.
19 Anna Burns Welker
Another former Hooters model is Anna Burns Welker, the wife of former New England Patriot and Denver Bronco, Wes Welker, and Miss Hooters 2005. The couple was married in June 2012 and she made waves in the media following the Baltimore Ravens’ victory against the Patriots in the 2013 AFC Championship. She said of the Ravens and their motivational leader Ray Lewis, “Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis' Wikipedia page. 6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!”
18 Elise Pollard
Current Detroit Lion Golden Tate is a lucky man. The wide receiver is in an incredible offensive system and is coming off the best season of his career when he made 99 catches for 1,331 yards and 4 touchdowns. He is in the prime of his on-field career and the prime of his dating career as he is currently in a serious relationship with the incredibly sexy Elise Pollard. Pollard graduated from the University of Washington and is a heavy hitter in the marketing industry.
17 Samantha Ponder
The ESPN college football reporter used to be known as Samantha Steele before marrying Christian Ponder, the former Minnesota Vikings quarterback. Ponder hasn’t had the career the team was hoping for when they drafted him with the 12th pick of the 2011 NFL Draft, but Samantha has had a great career. She had big shoes to fill when she replaced Erin Andrews on ESPN programming and the beautiful blonde with amazing dimples that resides in Austin, Texas has done a great job.
16 Marissa Powell
Linebacker Kyle Van Noy and Marissa Powell became engaged in late 2013. At that time, Powell was Miss Utah USA 2013 and Van Noy was a third team All-American player at BYU that was heading into the NFL Draft the following spring. He was a second round selection of the Detroit Lions and while he didn’t play a lot, still wins each time he comes home to Powell. Now the couple is married and Powell is not content with just being a WAG; she is also a model, actress, and a talented musician.
15 Jess Gysin
Jess Gysin is a talented athlete in her own right. She is a volleyball player that spent her collegiate years as an outside hitter for the USC Trojans and is now a professional volleyball superstar. As a WAG that spends most of her time on a beach in a bikini, it has been easy to admire her assets and wonder how in the world backup quarterback Jimmy Clausen got so lucky. The couple is now married and Clausen is a backup to Jay Cutler with the Chicago Bears.
14 Marisa Ventura
Last July, Seattle Seahawks receiver Jermaine Kearse asked model Marisa Ventura to be his wife. Ventura is a gorgeous model that grew up in Washington and had been dating Kearse for some time. She has showed off her huge engagement ring in social media and the happy couple is always being photographed with huge smiles. Of all the WAGs on this list, she is one of the most exotic and Kearse is one of the luckiest men on the face of the earth.
We don't know what Kearse's better catch was. His one in the Super Bowl, or Ventura. Hmm... Nah, definitely Ventura.
13 Kristin Cavallari
While Jimmy Clausen is the backup quarterback for the Chicago Bears, the man he backs up, Jay Cutler, has one here too. Kristen Cavallari of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County fame. Cavallari has taken the fame the show gave her and formed a lasting career as an actress, fashion designer, and television personality. The 28-year-old and Cutler were married in 2013 and have two sons. Prior to her relationship with Cutler, she was linked to former USC Trojans star, Matt Leinart.
12 Lauren Tannehill
When Ryan Tannehill was still in college at Texas A&M, he was widely regarded as having one of the hottest girlfriends in all of college sports. Lauren Ufer was (and is) a gorgeous blonde with a beautiful smile and has the meet-my-mom type of look who likes to fish and shoot guns. Right there, she is the dream girl of about 90 per cent of men in the United States. As Ryan was making his way into the NFL as a draft pick with the Miami Dolphins in 2012, the couple got married and Lauren is now one of the hottest WAGs in all of American sports. She gained even more prominence when the Miami Dolphins were featured on HBO's Hard Knocks back in Tannehill's rookie season.
11 Kasey Trione
If you look back on the NFL career of Lance Moore, he has had tremendous success with the New Orleans Saints. He had a solid 8-year run with the Saints and joined the Pittsburgh Steelers last season. He didn’t have a great year with the Steelers and will be playing for a new team in 2015. While his football career may not be at an all-time high right now, he is a lucky man that goes home each night to Kasey Trione. If you don’t know who Kasey is, check out her Instagram. You’ll be glad you did.
10 Katherine Webb-McCarron
Miss Alabama USA 2012 is a beautiful woman that is married to former Alabama star quarterback A.J. McCarron. McCarron was drafted in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft and did not appear in a single game for the Cincinnati Bengals a year ago. Luckily for us, his success on the field isn't a criteria for this list. He has succeeded off the field. Webb was widely an unknown face in sports until the 2013 BCS National Championship game when announcer Brent Musburger spoke about her on the broadcast. From there, her stock rose drastically.
9 Talor Reazin
Danny Amendola is now a Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots. Considering he began his career with the lowly St. Louis Rams and has dealt with injuries, the past two seasons makes everything worth the trouble. Something else that makes playing with the Rams and dealing with injuries even easier is coming home to the gorgeous Talor Reazin. The native of Oklahoma City is a model that has happily been with Amendola for some time, but isn’t even the hottest WAG on the Patriots.
8 Jessie James Decker
Eric Decker is a current member of the New York Jets and former Denver Bronco. Decker’s wife, Jessie James Decker, is an absolutely gorgeous country singer and reality television personality. She stars in an E! series, Eric & Jessie: Game On, which she stars in with Eric. The sexy and exotic James was born in Italy and released her debut album in 2009 and last year, released an extended play release that features 19 songs.
7 Kacie McDonnell
In the Murray sports family, their love lives have always been in the news. Last year, Josh Murray, the former baseball player that appeared on the television series, The Bachelorette, and ended up engaged during the show, recently split from his fiancée. Now, his brother, Aaron, former University of Georgia quarterback and current Kansas City Chiefs backup quarterback is dating Kacie McDonnell, a Philadelphia reporter and former Miss Teen Pennsylvania International, who is a beautiful woman that is by far one of the hottest WAGs in the NFL.
6 Claudia Sampedro
When you sit down and count the number of ways that Julius Peppers is so lucky, it can be hard to not lose count. The All-Pro defensive end and linebacker has spent his NFL career in Carolina, Chicago, and now Green Bay and is one of the best of all time. If a future Hall of Fame career wasn’t enough to become envious of the former North Carolina product, Google the name Claudia Sampedro. Sampedro is a Cuban product that was once linked to Reggie Bush, but now cozies up with Peppers. The more we think about it, we can probably complete an entire list just mentioned all of Bush’s former loves.
5 Lindsey Duke
One of the most amazing WAGs in all of sports, let alone the NFL, is Lindsey Duke. Duke is dating current Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles. The couple has been together since their time at UCF and Duke is one of the most desired women in sports. She has appeared on the cover of aXis Magazine. Like most other WAGs, she lives and dies by the final score on the scoreboard of her beau, but unfortunately for her, Bortles’ Jaguars were just 3-10 in his starts as a rookie in 2014.
4 Sasha Dindayal
Future Hall of Fame tight end Antonio Gates has accomplished just about everything in his career with the exception of a Super Bowl championship. That includes everything in his professional and personal career. Included in his personal career is a marriage to the beautiful Sasha Dindayal. Sasha is rumored to have made the rounds with her love life, but that doesn’t have anything to do with how drop-dead gorgeous she is. Some men in their late 20s might recognize her as the female boxer in the David Banner music video for “Play.”
3 Olivia Munn
Olivia Munn is one of the best kept secrets when it comes to the NFL WAGs. The actress that recently finished up her role on the popular television series, The Newsroom, is so amazingly hot that it is becoming difficult to not start hating on Aaron Rodgers, her boyfriend and arguably the best player in the NFL today. Munn, 34, is a native of Oklahoma City that along with Rodgers, make up one of the power couples of the American sports world.
2 Ariel Meredith
Hakeem Nicks could be moving to a different zip code this season after spending the 2014 season with the Indianapolis Colts. In addition to packing up his gear, he will also be helping gorgeous fiancée Ariel Meredith pack her things. The model has appeared in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and is arguably the hottest model in the business today. Regardless of where Nicks signs to play, he will know deep down that he's already made the best commitment of his life.
1 Gisele Bundchen
At this point, everyone in the world that follows football knows who Gisele Bundchen is. She is the wife of one of the greatest players in the history of the National Football League and is synonymous with the term, WAG, in the United States. The former model was called the highest paid supermodel in the United States by Forbes, an honor she achieved for eight straight years. The Brazilian-born model is one of the sexist models in history and will always make NFL fans wish they were Brady.
