Aside from football, what does NFL stand for?

The National Football League (NFL) is a professional American football league comprised of 32 clubs divided evenly between the NFC and the AFC (AFC). The current commissioner is Roger Goodell. The NFL's regular season starts on September 7 and ends on February 2 or when all games have been played.

The NFL was founded in 1920 by eight teams who agreed to play each other during the season. The league expanded to include more teams and change its schedule structure several times after that, but it wasn't until 1933 that it fully settled on a nine-game season with an additional game being played in 1934.

Are the AFC and NFC part of the NFL?

The American Football Conference (AFC) is one of the two conferences of the National Football League (NFL), America's top professional level of American football. This league, like its cousin, the National Football Conference, presently includes 16 clubs divided into four divisions (NFC). The winners of these divisions play each other in what are called the Wild Card games. The winner of each Wild Card game then plays the division champion with the highest rank remaining as the conference champion.

In addition to the Wild Card games, from 1972 to 1974 there was a separate championship series between the AFC and NFC champions. This was known as the "Super Bowl." Since 1975, when it was revived, the current season has ended with the establishment of a new league champion for the NFL. This new league is called the "Conference Championship Series" or "CCS."

The CCS consists of three different games, all played within a week of each other at the end of the regular season. The winner of the CCS is declared as the national champion of that year's NFL season.

The CCS began in 1999 when the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Atlanta Falcons 24-7 in the first game. The next year, the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots 21-17 in the second game. The last game was played in 2001 with the St. Louis Rams defeating the Tennessee Titans 28-16.

What divisions are there in NFL football?

The National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC) are the two leagues that comprise the 32 NFL franchises (AFC). They are separated into four sections: north, south, west, and east. The eight teams in each section play a weekly game within their division throughout the season. At the end of each year, the team with the most wins from each division is crowned the champion of its division.

There is no special designation for first-place teams in each division; instead, the team with the best record overall is declared the winner of the league championship. If ties exist between several teams with the same record, priority is given to the team that has the highest winning percentage over the other tied teams. If all else fails, a tie breaker procedure is used to determine a champion. This procedure depends on how many games remain to be played in the regular season schedule. If any pair of tied teams have not met during the season, then they will meet after the current season ends. If more than two teams remain tied, then a playoff match-up is scheduled for later in 2019 or 2020 at the latest.

Here is an example to help you understand how the NFL works: Let's say that during the 2018 season, the Chicago Bears won both the NFC North title and the NFC wild card spot. That means that they would get the No. 3 seed in the NFC playoffs.
