The National Football League is a professional American football league, also known as gridiron, made up of 32 NFL teams. This system has been officially known as the Super Bowl era since 1970. Before then, multiple competitions existed, until it was decided to merge them into one.
Now teams are split into two conferences, the NFC (National Football Conference) and the AFC (American Football Conference). Existing inside these conferences are also divisions.
The NFL regular season runs for 17 weeks from September to December, where each team plays 16 games and each of the NFL teams has 1 bye. Today, the NFL boasts the highest average attendance of all sports worldwide, plus the Super Bowl is one of the most watched events on television every year globally.
