The National Football League is an American football league made up of 32 teams, divided between the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). 

The NFL's regular-season lasts 18 weeks and runs between September and early January, with the top seven teams then advancing to the playoffs, culminating in a face-off at the Super Bowl in early February. 

Originally, the NFL was known as the American Professional Football Association but was renamed the NFL in 1922. Currently, the NFL is the most popular sports league in America, and the Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events in the world.  

When was the first NFL game? 

The first official football game in America took place on September 17, 1920. However, it was not until June 24, 1922, that the league became known as the NFL. 

The first Super Bowl did not take place until January 15, 1967, where the Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs.

Is the NFL rigged?

Several players have accused the NFL of fixing games, but there is no evidence that the NFL is rigged

In 2020, Benny Cunningham tweeted, "The NFL is scripted but they make us sign something so we can't go into detail... Tired of holding back... Who want the full story?" 

Larry Johnson agreed, adding, "At the end of every game: This has been a P-R-E-S-E-N-T-A-T-I-O-N... I kept getting called crazy so it's apparent you sheeple accept the reality in which you are presented (Truman Show)."
