- 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).
- Professional football is also intensely popular in Texas, and the state is home to two National Football League (NFL) franchises, the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans.
- The Answer: Each NFL team is allowed to have 53 players on its roster (plus a five-player practice squad). As of 2011, the NFL has 32 teams, making a total of 1,696 players. According to an estimate by Plunkett Research, the average NFL player salary in the 2010-2011 season was $1.9 million.
Alabama is the second-most populous U.S. state without a major professional sports league franchise (it is the most populous if one considers Virginia to be the home of the NFL's Washington Redskins and NHL's Washington Capitals, which have their practice facilities and operational headquarters in Northern Virginia).
- *12 teams are the most popular in more than one state:
- Atlanta Falcons – Alabama, Georgia.
- Carolina Panthers – North Carolina, South Carolina.
- Dallas Cowboys – Arkansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas.
- Denver Broncos – Colorado, Utah, Wyoming.
- Kansas City Chiefs – Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska.
- What they are playing now in Miami, Jacksonville and Tampa can't be pro football. Our state is defying the odds: Three teams, three bumbling franchises. The collective record of the Dolphins, Jags and Bucs: 13-32. If you want proof that there are too many teams in the NFL, this is it.
- Six teams from each of the league's two conferences qualify for the playoffs based on regular season records, and a tie-breaking procedure exists in the case of equal records. The tournament ends with the Super Bowl, the league's championship game, which matches the two conference champions.
