It works for 17 consecutive weeks till the end of the year and onward, and each team under NFL plays 16 games on an average.

The league was formed on the 20th of August, 1920, and was initially named American Professional Football Conference. In 1922, it was renamed as the National Football League.

As NFL has the best 32 teams under it, 18 teams have got the honor of winning Super Bowl each. The best of the lot is the Green Bay Packers, which has 13 championships under its belt. Following close to their heels is the Chicago Bears with nine NFL championships and New York Giants with 8 NFL championships. Pittsburgh Steelers have won 6 Super Bowl championships, while the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers have won 5 Super Bowls each.
