The National Football League is a professional organization that consist of 32 teams. They are divided equally between the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). The NFL operates on a 17-week regular season. After regular season is over, six teams goes to the playoffs, which culminates to a Super Bowl, which is played between the AFC and the NFC.

Football involves running, throwing, and kicking to score a goal. Two teams use between 11 to 18 players. Scoring qualified points is the goal to win the game. Players are required to move the football, carry, kick, or hand-pass the football. They can only use their body to move the ball. Globally, Football is played by over 250 million players all over, 200 nations. It has the highest audience on television, and most popular in the Unites States. The Super bowl is the most watched in the U.S. history of television.

During the spring, the NFL draft college players. The draft goes through seven rounds, to determine by a regular season record. All candidate draftees, must be at least three years- from high school, to be eligible for the draft. Selected players are allowed to negotiate contracts and team deals.
