No. Football is an American sport. America wasn't around during ancient times. Especially not ancient Olympics.

Since ancient times, peoples from around the world have played games which involved kicking or carrying a ball. The more modern version of traditional football mainly got its origin in England, though.

NFL is an American football abbreviation. "NFL" stands for "National Football League". National because the league is played across the nation; Football because the game played is referred to as "football" (It is known as "football" in America. Many countries refer to it a "soccer".); League because this national game is played with multiple teams in many places at different times, etc. (unapproved definition of "league").

Yes. With skulls from other tribes. x____Funny answer, but truthfully, no. American Football only dates back to the 19th century, although Soccer (European Football) dates back further to "ancient" times and could have roots in ancient Chinese or MesoAmerican games. None that I know of included skulls, however.

Dance started in very ancient times, long before countries were defined.
