National Football League

It is an American football game played on a 100-yard field by two teams of 11 players. The NFL squads of 53 players make ups each side’s offensive defensive and special teams units that take turns in the field. NFL has 32 teams which is divided equally between two teams named National football conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). This game was started in 1920 on 20 August which has just completed its 100 years.

The NFL regular season of play kicks off in the month of September and last to the end of December. The 256 game schedules is spread out over a span of 17 weeks where all 32 teams in the league play 16 games each and have a rest day or what is known as a “Bye” week. Since each team can’t play the rest of the 31 teams in one season like other professional sports, the NFL has devised a really cool way of how they do their scheduling.

To show you their formula in action, I’ll use the Cleveland Browns as an example. We begin with the Browns will play six games against their divisional opponents, one home and one away. Next up, the Browns will play four games against a different division within the same conference, having two home and two away games. For this example, I’ll pick the AFC West.  Then there’s another four games against a different division, but out of conference, same as two home and two away. I’ll choose the NFC South.

Finally the last two games scheduled are against teams from the two remaining divisions in the same conference. So in our case, the AFC East and AFC South. How these match-ups are determined are by the division rankings from the previous season. So for example, if the Browns finished fourth last year, then they would play the fourth team in both of those divisions. The schedule rotates every year, ensuring that every team will play each of the 31 teams at least once in a 4-year period. Pretty cool huh, so the rotation for the AFC North is AFC East, South, West and NFC North, South, West and East.  So in the 2020 season, the Browns will have their AFC match-up be the South division and the NFC match-up be the East division.
