Accessibility Comments: 

This is a mixed bag in terms of accessibility. Take note that when you first install the app you are prompted to select a favorite team. If this is a new install, the only way I found to get past this was tu turn VoiceOver off, tap someplace on the screen to select a random team and then turn VoiceOver on. You can change this preference on www.nfl.com and then sign in to your account with the iOS app.

My focus was on trying to listen to the game audio for my audiopass subscription. From what I've found you need to select the game and be quick because focus keeps moving off the games as the screen updates. If you manage to select the game, there will be a button to listen and then options to select the home or away feed. This is still very rough but slightly better from last year's verion.
This is by no means an overly usable app but if you work at it you can get some stuff done.

Also be aware that at least for me on both an iPhone and an iPad the app is crashing quite frequently when VoiceOver is running.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.
