In honor of the season starting, and the first Saints game of 2017, learn how the balls that are used in the NFL are made!

You might have an idea of how these things come together, but I for sure didn't know the full, in-depth details that go into making the footballs. According to this video, it's a five day process to put it all together.

Starting from the cutting of the cowhide, to the actual first inflation, this process is a lot more actual hands on than I expected.

Luckily for us, we don't have to watch five days worth of work play out in normal time. We can see how it happens in just over two and a half minutes.
