New web series NFL Next looks at how technology is changing the game, including how virtual reality will impact training for the players and, of course, the experience for the fans.

Says Max Cohen, head of Oculus, "If you could actually beam that experience to people where you're sitting next to your favorite player, you look to your right and you see them and you look ahead and the coach is there firing up the team. That's something that is less about the money of going to the game but about creating that emotional connection in a deeper way that you can't normally get from watching that thing on a TV."
