It should be easier to find NFL scores on Google moving forward, which is a good thing because the season is quickly approaching.

That’s not all though. Google has expanded its NFL-related search results to include even more information, thanks to a partnership with ESPN, which already expanded upon its MLB results.

In a message posted to Google’s Inside Search Blog, software engineer Itay Maman writes:

Just as the NFL season kicks off and you have your fantasy football league ready to go, you’ll be able to get useful information such as the latest scores, schedules, standings and stats for football-related queries in your search results. Last week, we started showing MLB results in partnership with ESPN and we’re now expanding sports live results to include the NFL. In addition to information on the football league, teams and players, you’ll also have direct links to previews, live streams, updates and game recaps. We hope to add more and more sports information on, so stay tuned.

The first game of the season kicks off at 8:30 PM (Eastern) on Thursday, September 8 on NBC. The New Orleans Saints head to Lambeau to face the Green Bay Packers.
