With the National Football League regular season spanning just 17 weeks, this proves that every game matters. A losing streak can spell the end for the team and therefore, every player must bring his best to seal a victory. Part of bringing one’s A-game is to survive the physical grind that he can get for 60 minutes of action. The injuries in the sport are well documented and therefore, taking caution and controlled aggression is very important.
The league now has 32 teams and was originally called the American Professional Football Conference. The bulk of the expansion teams came during the 1966 merger between the then-National Football League and its rival league, the American Football League. This is why the two NFL conferences are named the American Football Conference and the National Football Conference. Each conference has four divisions (East, West, North and South) with four teams each.
At the end of the regular season, the six highest win-loss records per conference proceed to the NFL Playoffs. Then, the champions in both conferences play in the Super Bowl and the winner is declared champion and rightful owner of the Vince Lombardi Trophy for a year. With its short season, every game is a must-watch. Thus, do not hesitate to get those NFL game tickets when they become available. When you have purchased it, the feeling is like scoring a game-winning touchdown.
