Football season is upon us once again—it kicks off on Rosh Hashanah, with a game between the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings, a team that boasts the only Jewish quarterback in the NFL, Sage Rosenfels. (His playing time has been eclipsed mightily by Brett Favre.)

But Rosenfels isn’t the only Jew in professional football. Tablet Magazine’s Marc Tracy has been keeping tabs on his coreligionists on the gridiron. He spoke with The Atlantic Wire‘s Ray Gustini, a similarly avid fan who formerly wrote for the National Football Post, about which teams are friendly to the Jews—and which could end up as Tablet Magazine’s favorite squad.
