The wait is over. Football season is here, and what better way to show our appreciation of the sport than celebrating the real beauty of it? You know what we're talking about...the cheerleaders! When your favorite team’s getting whooped, this handpicked squad of lovely ladies are sure to make the loss hurt a little less…
1. Allison Renn: Who knew the Jacksonville Jaguars could look so good? This babe hit the NFL sidelines back in 2016 and has been catching stares from onlookers ever since. During a recent interview with CBS, she revealed that she's kind of a nerd who loves Starbucks and the song "Island in the Sun" by Weezer. Works for us!
2. Mallory Moore: What's hotter than a young, sexy sideline blonde bombshell? That's the full package you get with Houston Texans cheerleader Mallory Moore. When she's not doing her thing at a game, the 19-year-old cheer girl loves posting hot photos of herself and gym shots on Instagram.
3. Khalyn Cole: When you think of the best of the cheering best, you think of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. Khalyn isn't only beautiful but she also has what it takes to snag a spot on this elite squad. If you follow her on Instagram, you'll not only get a glimpse of her cheer and dance life but also tons of shots of her bangin' bod in a bikini.
4. Ally Lauren: If you aren't into the typical blonde, then this Miami Dolphins cheerleader may be your girl. Ally's gotten her cheer on for the Fins for two years now, and from the looks of her Insta page, thankfully, that isn't ending anytime soon.
5. Allison DeJesus: You know you're a smokeshow when you not only cheer for the Patriots but you're also a bikini competitor! That's the combo you get with Allison DeJesus and her Instagram thankfully shows off the best photos from both worlds.
6. Justene Alpert: This brunette beauty gets her cheer on for the Los Angeles Rams. There's not much personal info about her online, but after checking out her Instagram page, you'll want to follow anyway. She seems to be the queen of posting sexy swimsuit shots. Oh and her friends (who are cheerleaders too) are pretty hot as well. Need we say more?
7. Zoë Christiana: We're pretty sure this Pats cheerleader knows nothing about deflate-gate, if you know what we mean. She's smoking hot, and her Instagram is just more proof. Her bio states that she's a TV host, pizza enthusiast, adventure seeker, lover of puppies, scary movies, football and fall. She also says she has a PhD in selfies, and we can’t argue.
8. Hillary Johnson: You can't make a top NFL cheerleaders list without putting an OG in it. Hillary got her cheer on for the Baltimore Ravens for five years and has finally decided to retire this season. Not only is she gorgeous, but she seems to live a classy lifestyle, too.
9. Britt: If you want the girl on top, who’s a better choice than the captain of the cheerleading squad? Britt is the Miami Dolphins' cheerleader in charge, and anyone with eyes can see why they chose her to lead the pack on game day!
10. Yuri: What is sexier than a Japanese NFL cheerleader? Seriously! Yuri not only cheers for the San Francisco 49ers, she actually graduated from a university in Japan with a degree in Cheerleading Psychology. Who even knew that was even a thing??
11. Nicole Manelas: Sweatpants, sports bra, six-pack? Yes, please! New England cheerleader Nicole Manelas shows her Instagram followers the art of being hot in tons of candid shots on her page... just in case you needed another reason to hit the follow button.
12. Antonieta Osuna: While her gig with the Houston Texans just ended, we still have to show off Antonieta Osuna because she's that bangin'. She's always been into athletics and actually won a Texas state boxing championship in 2005. While she no longer competes in the sport, she recently didn't have a problem challenging Ronda Rousey to a throwdown. Kinda hot, right?
13. Brianna Stade: If you're looking for a hot cheerleader to follow on the 'Gram, then Brianna is your girl. Not only does the Atlanta Falcons cheerleader post sexy photos of herself on the sidelines, but she also puts up pictures of her smokeshow friends in swimsuits, too. Talk about a win-win!
14. Alex Brandy: Think it's hot if a cheerleader could probably kick your ass in the gym? Then you'll want to start following Alex Brandy on Instagram ASAP. The Patriots cheerleader does her thing on the sidelines but is also a certified personal trainer. That will become obvious after you see her amazing bod and the numerous gym videos she's posted on her page.
15. Holly Marie Powell: If you're into redheads, you need to follow Holly on social media pronto. The Dallas Cowboys cheerleader obviously has what it takes to be on the top-notch squad, and after peeping her page, you'll easily see why.
