1970. When the AFL-NFL merger took place in 1970, there were 16 teams in the NFL and 10 teams in the AFL. To make the number of teams even in the newly created conferences, three teams from the old NFL (new NFC) moved over to play in the AFC. These teams were the Colts, Cleveland Browns, and Pittsburgh Steelers.
The top ten NFL franchises based on regular season victories: 1. Chicago Bears 728-530-42 2. Green Bay Packers 695-535-36 3. New York Giants 658-544-33 4. Pittsburgh Steelers 565-517-20 5.

Coaches can be ranked either by total number of wins or winning percentage. The top ten coaches in NFL history by total career wins are: Don Shula (328), George Halas (318), Tom Landry (250), Curly Lambeau (226), Marty Schottenheimer (200), Bill Belichick (199), Chuck Noll (193), Dan Reeves (190), Chuck Knox (186), Bill Parcells (172).
Currently 6 teams (Cincinnati, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Chicago and San Francisco) are the only NFL teams with Black head coaches. Art Shell was the first black head coach in the NFL, coaching for Oakland in two separate tenures. In the history of the NFL, only 10 Black head coaches have been hired.
The American Football Conference and the National Football Conference. They were created in 1970, when the NFL merged with the rival American Football League. Thirteen of the 16 teams from the pre-merger NFL established the NFC, while the Steelers, Colts, and Browns left the old NFL to join the 10 AFL teams to establish the AFC.

Brett Farve is the only QB to beat all 32 teams in the NFL, doing so on 10-20-2009. However, Morten Andersen defeated all 32 NFL teams on 11-28-2004 with a victory over the Jacksonvile Jaguars. Andersen not only defeated all current NFL teams, he defeated all NFL teams who moved cities or changed names once again after the name change.

There are 11 games in the NFL postseason playoff to the super bowl. Has it always been 11 playoff games?
There are the Yankees (Baseball), Mets (Baseball), Knicks (NBA), Liberty (WNBA), Rangers (Hockey), Islanders (Hockey), Giants (NFL), Jets (NFL), Metrostars (Soccer), Magic (Soccer). In total that makes 10 teams that are from New York City. Plus numerous NCAA teams including my favorite the Richmond Flying Squirrels.
