The National Football League is divided into two conferences: the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). Each conference has 16 teams, and are divided into four divisions of four teams- north, south, east and west- during the regular season.

The top six teams from both conferences (division leaders and two wild card teams) play each other, and the last undefeated team in each conference plays in the Super Bowl

Since the NFL merged the two conferences in 1970, AFC teams have won 20 Super Bowls while NFC won 24.
