When the NFL & AFL merged for the 1970 season, the AFL teams were all placed in the AFC, and the NFL teams were placed in the NFC, with the exception of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore (now Indy) Colts, and Cleveland Browns (now Baltimore Ravens), who were moved to the AFC to even things out. I'm not sure how decisions are made as to which conference new expansion teams are placed in.
i belive the league just comes up with it I know it has nothing to do with location.
NFL has 32 teams NFC has 16 teams AFC has 16 teams
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.
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.
NO. Always AFC v. NFC
Besides the teams that are in them none. Many people say the AFC has better teams.
The top teams in each of the eight divisions will automatically make the playoffs. Then there are two wildcard teams that make the playoffs from each conference (NFC & AFC). These two wildcard teams in each conference make the playoffs based off of who has the best record other than the four that have already won their division. If two teams have the same record, then they look at the head to head games, and then their point differential. Recap: 8 teams who win their conferences, 4 in each conference (NFC, AFC), automatically make it (AFC West, AFC East, AFC North, AFC South, NFC West, NFC East, NFC North, NFC South) 4 teams, 2 in each conference (NFC, AFC), who have the best records other than the teams in the conference who have already won their division.
I believe it's from the merge between the AFL and NFL the AFC teams are the American football league teams and the NFC the national football league.
Any AFC team, has to win the AFC Championship game, and any NFC team, has to win the NFC Championship!!
In 1970 the AFL and NFL merged. Two conferences were created: The AFC and the NFC. All of the old AFL teams became members of the AFC. The old NFL teams became members of the NFC.

The National Football League (NFL) consists of 32 teams and is divided into two conferences - the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC) - each of which has 16 teams apiece. Each Conference is divided into 4 divisions - North, South, East and West. Each division has in it 4 teams apiece. So there is the AFC North, AFC South, AFC East and AFC West as well as the NFC North, AFC South, AFC East and AFC West.
