The National Football League (NFL) is a 32-team professional American football league split evenly between the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC).



The NFL is the highest professional level of American football in the globe, and it is one of the four main North American professional sports leagues.

Each club plays seventeen games and has one bye week during the eighteen-week regular season, which spans from early September to early January.



Following the regular season, seven teams from each conference (four division winners and three wild card teams) advance to the playoffs, a single-elimination tournament that culminates in the Super Bowl, which takes place in

February and pits the AFC and NFC conference champions against one another. New York City is the league’s headquarters.
