Pro Football Weekly (sometimes shortened to PFW) was an American sports magazine, founded in 1967, that covered the National Football League. It was owned by Pro Football Weekly LLC and headquartered in Riverwoods, Illinois. The magazine closed in 2013 due to years of losses.[1]

The magazine was published 32 times a year, including every week of the NFL season, and issued four supplementary publications – the Pro Football Weekly Preview, the Fantasy Football Guide, the Draft Preview, and the Pro Prospects Preview – annually. With a beat writer covering each NFL team, the magazine was one of a small number covering each team in detail on a regular basis.

Hub Arkush was PFW's editor and publisher from 1978 until its closure.

While the magazine has ceased publication, the popular syndicated radio show called Pro Football Weekly & Basketball News has continued. It is hosted by Arkush and Wayne Larrivee; the program also covers the NBA. Similarly, the Pro Football Weekly half-hour television show has continued to air during the 2013 NFL season. Arkush also continues to publish an annual NFL preview digest and fantasy football guide under the banner title of Hub Arkush's Pro Football Now.

From 1996 to 2002, Pro Football Weekly was owned by Primedia.
