The National Football League is a professional American football competition 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 2 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 18 weeks from September to January, with each team now playing 17 games plus 1 bye week. That's 272 high-octane regular season games for fans to enjoy.

The NFL boasts the highest average attendance of all domestic sports leagues worldwide, plus the Super Bowl is one of the most watched events on television every year globally.

NFL key player movements season 2021

Quarterbacks dominated headlines throughout the offseason. It started when Detroit and the Los Angeles Rams swapped QBs – Matthew Stafford moving to the Rams, while Jared Goff went the other way.

Reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers also threatened to leave the Green Bay Packers. The star 37-year-old QB missed Green Bay's entire offseason program and only returned after the Packers agreed to rework his contract. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson spoke of his frustration with his team's direction and was at one point linked with a trade to the Packers, in exchange for Rodgers. Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson, meanwhile, is the subject of serious criminal allegations and may not play at all.

7-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady signed a 1-year contract extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that will keep the legendary quarterback playing beyond his 45th birthday. And in the NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars selected quarterback Trevor Lawrence with pick 1.

Super Bowl XLIV MVP and the NFL's all-time leading passer, quarterback Drew Brees, also retired after a glittering 20-year career in New Orleans.

There are a variety of options for how you can make sure you see every touchdown and big hit this year. Australians now have multiple ways to get American football on their devices. We have made it easy and created a complete breakdown of all your viewing options.
