The National Football League is one of the most popular forms of professional football leagues. In this league, a total of 32 teams play with each other to win the trophy. The NFL is the world’s most renowned professional American football league among the other four major North American professional football leagues.
The league consists of a total of 18 weeks spanned over a total of five months from early September to early January. This is called the regular season and every team gets 17 games to play along with one bye week. After the conclusion of the regular season, a total of seven teams get ready to play the Single-elimination tournament. These seven teams consist of four division winners and three wild card entries. The final tournament culminates into the most awaited moment of American lives, The Super Bowl! You all must have heard about it from “How I Met Your Mother”, let me tell you more about this exciting game.
When the best plays with the best, a Super Bowl happens. Yes, you heard it right. It is the annual championship game of the National Football League wherein the best teams of NFL and AFL play with each other. You might be interested in knowing that, initially NFL and AFL were rivals and the Super Bowl was an attempt to merge the NFL and the rival team American Football League or AFL. The aim was to get the best game out of the best teams of both leagues. Isn’t it amazing! It has been acting as the final game of the National Football League since 1996 and it successfully replaced the NFL Championship Game. Interestingly, the game has been played on the first Sunday of February since 2004. The winning team gets to take the Vince Lombardi Trophy home.
Fact: There are restrictions on the usage of the “Super Bowl” by the NFL. so, many non-sponsoring corporations often use “big game” or any other generic term. Now you know what a “big game”.
Initially, the game was referred to as the AFL–NFL World Championship Game until the term “Super Bowl” was adopted in 1969.
Today the NFL has the highest number of spectators for any professional sports league throughout the globe. The Super Bowl is also one of the largest club sport events across the globe. Its individual games account for the most-watched television programs in American history.
