The actual time specified by the AFL is 80 minutes of non-stop football.
However, most quarters drift for around 25 minutes per/quarter because of all the various stoppages in play. Overall a match goes for around 100 minutes by itself; if you then add the time players have off the field or take a break in the game, which is indicated by a siren, it comes up to about 120-140 minutes all up. This is a full AFL match.

In the NFL, during the regular season halftimes are 12 minutes long. They are longer during the playoffs and during the Super Bowl they are about 30 minutes.

Basketball is not like football. There are 12 minutes in a quarter and there are 4 quarters. That is a total of 48 minutes. During those 48 minutes the players are playing the game and there is plenty of action. The clock is not running during time outs and when free throws are being shot. So, there is action when the clock is running and it runs for 48 minutes.
