Every NFL team plays:-every team from their own division twice (1 home, 1 away). (6 games).-One game against every team from one of the divisons of their own conference on a rotating 3 year cycle. (4 games)-One game against every team one of the divsions of the other conference on a rotating 4 year cycle (4 games)-The other two games are based on how the team finsished in their division the previous year: The teams that finished in first place in their division the previous season will play the all the other same-conference teams that finished in first in their respective division the previous year, excluding the team they already played based on "playing every team from one of the divisions of their own conference on a rotating 3 year cycle" The teams that fisnished in second place the previous season play the other teams that fisnished in second place the previous season, third place vs third place, and 4th place vs 4th place. Please realize though, that teams do not play teams outside of their conference based on this 1st place vs 1st place, 2nd place vs second place, etc thing.

Yes, the teams rotate interconference play based on divisions. For instance, the NFC East teams play the AFC South teams in 2010. In 2011, the NFC East will play the AFC East.

None of the AFC or NFC Championship games have ever been decided in an overtime period.

There are two groups of football teams: AFC and NFC. The teams with the most wins in the AFC go against each other in the Playoffs for the title of AFC Champions. The teams with the most wins in the NFC go against each other in the Playoffs for the title of NFC Champions. The AFC Champion team and the NFC Champion team are the teams in the Super Bowl.

Besides the teams that are in them none. Many people say the AFC has better teams.
