National Football Conference

The National Football Conference (NFC) is one of the two conferences of the National Football League (NFL), the highest professional level of American football in the United States. This conference and its counterpart, the American Football Conference (AFC), currently contain 16 teams each, making up the 32 teams of the NFL. Both conferences were created as part of the 1970 merger with the rival American Football League (AFL), with all ten of the former AFL teams and three NFL teams forming the AFC while the remaining thirteen NFL clubs formed the NFC. A series of league expansions and division realignments have occurred since the merger, thus making the current total of 16 clubs in each conference.


NFC teams are divided into four divisions - East, West, North and South. Some of the major teams in NFC include Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Rams, Dallas Cowboys etc. Dallas Cowboys hold the record for most NFC titles with 8 titles.
