SiriusXM NFL Radio is a station on Sirius XM Radio channel 88 that is dedicated to the National Football League. Its personalities include several former players, coaches and front office executives including Gil Brandt, Derrick Brooks, Tim Brown, Rich Gannon, Pat Kirwan, James Lofton, John Madden, Anthony "Booger" McFarland, Jim Miller, Scott Pioli, Bill Polian, LaDainian Tomlinson, Ross Tucker, Amani Toomer and Solomon Wilcots. Hosts on the channel include Bob Papa, Bruce Murray, Alex Marvez, Jack Arute, Vic Carucci, Howard David, Dan Leberfeld, Steve Torre, Zig Fracassi and Jeff Rickard.
The channel had been known as "Sirius NFL Radio", but after the Sirius/XM merger, the channel name was changed. It was added to XM on September 20, 2008 as part of its "Premier" package and broadcasts on channel 88.
The programming on SiriusXM NFL Radio can often variate, even during the offseason, due to live coverage of the NFL Combine, the NFL Owners' Meetings, the NFL Draft, and the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. The current NFL radio lineup is as follows:
6 am ET - The Morning Kickoff with Ross Tucker
11 pm ET - NFL Network's Total Access - (Simulcast of NFL Network)

The SiriusXM NFL Radio channel does not air games on Sunday afternoons. Instead, it airs The Sunday Drive, which recaps all games being played on Sunday afternoon, while breaking into radio broadcasts of any games where pertinent action is taking place (similar to NFL RedZone). The games themselves are aired on the reserved play-by-play channels and other channels not being used. The channel instead carries national radio broadcasts produced by the NFL on Westwood One for Sunday Night Football, Monday Night Football, and Thursday Night Football. Through the 2010 season, when games were carried on this channel, the internet simulcast would carry alternative content due to the NFL's Field Pass exclusivity.
When SiriusXM renewed its contract to carry NFL games through the 2015 season, it gained the rights to stream games online to satellite radio subscribers, starting with the 2011 season.
