About National Football League (NFL)

The National Football League (NFL) is an iconic professional American football league. The NFL has 32 teams and two main conferences: the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). Each year, the winners of each conference meet in the NFL's championship game called the Super Bowl, which is typically one of the most widely watched sporting events in the world each year.

The NFL's roots can be traced to 1920 with the creation of the American Professional Football Association. The league's name was changed to the NFL in 1922. The first Super Bowl was held in 1967. Since then, two teams have won six Super Bowls apiece: the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New England Patriots. However, the team with the most overall NFL championships is the Green Bay Packers, which has 13 championships in all, nine before the Super Bowl era and four in the Bowl era.

Today, the NFL is led by Roger Goodell, the league's commissioner. Goodell has served as commissioner since September 2006.
