When Do The Games Start?

The National Football League (NFL) is a professional American football league consisting of 32 teams, divided equally between the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). The NFL is one of the four major professional sports leagues in North America, and the highest professional level of American football in the world.

Regular Season

The NFL regular season typically runs from the first Sunday in September to the first Sunday in December, with each team playing 16 games. The regular season is followed by the playoffs, which conclude with the Super Bowl — the biggest and most watched sporting event in the United States — on the first Sunday in February.

Playoffs

The National Football League playoffs are a single-elimination tournament held after the regular season to determine the NFL champion. Six teams from each of the league’s two conferences qualify for the playoffs. A tie-breaking procedure exists if required. The tournament culminates in the Super Bowl, the league’s championship game.

How Long Are The Games?

NFL games are 60 minutes long, divided into four 15 minute quarters. However, the game clock does not stop for these quarter breaks. The clock only stops when the ball is out of play, such as when a team scores, the ball goes out of bounds, or there is a penalty. There are also two minute breaks at the end of the first and third quarters.

Regular Season

The NFL regular season typically runs from the week after Labor Day to the week after Christmas, with each team playing 16 games.

The start of the season is determined by the NFL schedule makers, who attempt to create an exciting start to the season by matching strong teams against each other in what are known as marquee games. The remaining weeks of the schedule are typically filled with regional rivalries and games between teams with similar records from the previous season.

Playoffs

The playoffs are a single-elimination tournament held after the end of the NFL regular season to determine the league’s champion. Seven teams from each of the league’s two conferences qualify for the playoffs. A four-round playoff determines the conference champions, who then meet in the Super Bowl, the league’s championship game.
