After months of anxiously waiting, football season is finally back. And with the return of your favorite teams comes an all-new lineup of signature sandwiches from Food Network and partner Delaware North Companies. For the 2011 baseball season, the duo made eight steak sandwiches and one sausage with local twists.

This time, it’s all about the brisket.

Five NFL stadiums are serving up a delicious signature pub-style brisket sandwich with cheddar cheese, whole-grain mustard and crispy onions on a pretzel roll -- one stadium will also serve a specialty bratwurst sandwich. Don't forget to snag a locally-inspired version.
