“Congratulations” to the New York Giants, who beat the New England Patriots 17 to 14 to take home the Super Bowl title!
Although it was only several decades ago that professional football came into its own here in the United States, today many say that football has replaced baseball as America's favorite pastime. Certainly if the number of tickets sold is any measure of popularity, then NFL team averages ranging from over 50,000 up to almost 90,000 paid admissions per game say Americans love this sport!
The 32 teams of the NFL do battle through 17 grueling weeks of the regular season, yet that is only phase one of the competition to be crowned national champion. Next come the NFL Playoffs, and here the excitement is guaranteed. You’ll want tickets to watch the teams who have fought their way to the tops of their divisions, plus the long-shot wild card teams, because these do-or-die games determine the champions of the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC), who ultimately face off in the Super Bowl.
