RELATED LEAGUES
The National Football League began in 1920 as the American Professional Football Association and was renamed in 1922. Four All-America Football Conference teams (San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Colts) joined in 1949. Between 1966-1969, the American Football League and NFL Champions met in the Super Bowl, before both leagues merged to form an expanded National Football League in 1970.

It currently has 32 teams with the Houston Texans joining in 2002. Teams are based in 30 US cities with two in Los Angeles (Chargers and Rams) and two teams representing New York but based in New Jersey (Giants and Jets). Each team is allocated college football players through the annual Draft held every April.
SEASON
Each team plays a series of pre-season games, in August, before competing in a 17-week 16-game schedule, between September and December/January, with some games played in London and Mexico City. The regular season is followed by the Playoffs which end in February with the Super Bowl. Prior to the Super Bowl, an all-star game, the Pro Bowl, takes place in Orlando, FL (formerly Honolulu, Hawai'i).
SUPER BOWL
The Super Bowl is played in a neutral venue announced 3-5 years before the game on the first Sunday in February following the regular season.
2020 SEASON
