According to NFL betting statistics, the four NFL team symbols in the NFC West are the Seahawks, Rams, Falcons, and Cardinals. The NFC South division contains some of the more recent insignia. The Panthers, Saints, Buccaneers, and Falcons play in that division. The AFC is likewise rich in history and tradition. The Colts, Patriots, Raiders, and Broncos are all former champion teams that have been revived with new ownership.
The AFC East has had many different names over the years but currently consists of six teams: the Bills, Dolphins, Jets, Patriots, Ravens, and Redskins. The NFC West has had five names over its existence but only two teams remain from the original AFL and NFL conferences: the Seahawks and Rams.
Team names and logos are important parts of NFL culture. They serve as a unifying force for fans within their respective communities. A player on a current NFL roster may have nothing to do with fandom or sportsmanship, but he still needs an identity. That's why every team wears their colors on the field and visits Disneyland after winning the Super Bowl.
In addition to these identities, there are several other elements that make up an NFL logo. There are three main types of team logos: primary, secondary, and tertiary. Primary logos are used primarily for identification purposes and usually feature a single design element (such as a star or stripe) that represents the entire team.

This franchise shares a home state with two other NFL teams. The Purple People Eaters are the name of this squad. The New Orleans Saints are a formidable competitor for this squad. Dan Marino, the legendary NFL quarterback, spent his whole career with this franchise, from 1983 to 1999.
The National Football League (NFL) has 32 clubs divided into two conferences: the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). At the end of the regular season, six teams from each conference compete for the Super Bowl, including four division-winning teams and two wild card teams.

Five of the NFL's 32 clubs have no official mascot at all. The New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, and Washington Redskins are among those clubs. Mascots are often associated with sports teams to give them a visual identity and promote interest in the club. Some mascots also have become popular celebrities in their own right.
The first four teams listed here were all established prior to the 1958 season. That year, however, an owner of a then-unnamed baseball team in Washington, D.C. came up with the idea of creating a mascot for his team. George Preston Marshall Jr., who was known as George Preston "Preston" Stevens at the time, adopted a character he called "Red Dog" and had him dressed in the colors of the Washington Senators. Red Dog became a local celebrity and is still seen at Nationals Park today.
The last team listed here, the Washington Redskins, became the first modern NFL team when they debuted in 1937. They hired artist Clifford Pugh to come up with a mascot for them. The character that emerged from Pugh's mind was a cartoon Indian named "Rudy" who would go on to become one of the most recognized faces in football history. Rudy made his debut during a game against the Philadelphia Eagles and has been a constant presence at Redskins home games ever since.
The American Football Conference, originally known as the American Football League, is abbreviated as AFC (AFL). The National Football Conference, originally known as the National Football League, is abbreviated as the NFC (NFL). Following the merger of the AFL and NFL in 1970, ten AFL and three NFL clubs created the AFC. The NFC remained sole ownership of the New York Giants and Chicago Bears until 1977, when the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys joined them.
The original eight teams were: the Boston Patriots, Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Chicago Bears. The Patriots and Bills are now in the AFC, while the Reds are in the NL West. The Cowboys and Redskins are in the NFC. The merged league was called the American Football Conference because there were already two major professional football leagues in America named the National Football League (the old AFL team owners wanted to differentiate themselves from their former league).
In 1998, the Jacksonville Jaguars joined the AFC as an expansion team. The Tennessee Titans moved from the NFC to join the AFC South division of the conference. That same year, the Houston Texans joined the AFC as another new franchise. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers also moved from the NFC to the AFC South division of the conference.
The 2002 season saw the addition of two more teams, the Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Mascots have a long history. Both teams have had mascots since the beginning. No, there were no people dressed up on the field, but they were labeled as Tanks, Bulldogs, Heralds, Blues, Staleys, Cardinals, Triangles, and Prospects. Almost every NFL franchise has its own mascot. Some are well-known characters while others are simply nicknames given to players or coaches.
The Dallas Cowboys' mascot is America. The name "America" was chosen in reference to both the country that the team is based in and the fact that many people believe that the area was once inhabited by Native Americans. The team started using a mascot in 1969 when they drafted American football player Roger Staubach from a local high school. Before then, there was just an unbranded player named Chuck who didn't even play an official game for the team.
The Denver Broncos' mascot is Moxie. He first appeared in the team's promotional materials in 1999. Before then, the only official mascot was Jeff which used to visit schools to teach children about sportsmanship. Moxie is based on a character from a book series for young adults called the "Moxie Kid" series. The protagonist is a young boy who lives in Colorado who enjoys playing football.
