    Odd question. My plane lands at 9:10 a.m. If I hurry via cab, will I make it to the strip for in time for kickoff for the NFL games? It might sound silly, but I think they would be fun to watch in the sportsbooks on the big screens. I will only have my carry on. No checked in luggage

    They start at 10:00 am. Pst / 1:00 pm est So you have almost an hour from scheduled touchdown. 10 minute taxi and then unload (choose ur seat wisely) and ur off. Hit the bell desk with luggage and settle in.

    I'm a Browns fan, I don't see many touchdowns normally ;)

    Both of the above answers could be correct.

    More info would help.

    What airline are you coming in on? Not needing the tram would save a few minutes.

    Will any decent hotel with a Sports Book do, or do you need to get to your hotel? If so, what is it?

    Are you trying to get some bets down before 10:00?

    Probably wont have time to bet. Staying at Flamingo-American Airlines....any decent hotel will do, not in a major hurry to check in or anything. My gut tells me I will probably get there maybe 15 min after kickoff..I'll live if so, was just curious..My first trip to Vegas caught some of the playoff games..the atmosphere was great

    It depends if the plane arrives on time and how quickly it unloads. But I have picked up a rental and checked in within an hour of landing so I don't think you will miss too much of a game. Just decide where you want to watch and check your bag.
