Besides end zone paint, team crests, and stadium designs, playing fields have a similar pattern in the NFL. If you look at the specifics, the regular football field is 120 yards long and 53.3 yards wide. However, one thing that can change from stadium to stadium is the type of grass used to play. Since there are no restrictions imposed by the league on the type of grass, NFL teams get to decide.

Currently, 16 franchises use natural grass and 14 have evolved into artificial turf. Although today's artificial grass is seen as a much safer option, NFL athletes differ in their thinking. In any case, let's go right into the details.

The majority of the stadiums in the league cultivate Bermuda grass, a natural growing seed that can tolerate extreme heat and heavy use. Kansas City Chiefs' Arrowhead Stadium, Miami Dolphins' Hard Rock Stadium, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Raymond James Stadium (among others), use this type of natural field.


Under cold weather conditions, stadiums make use of a cool-season lawn grass called Kentucky Bluegrass. The Chicago Bears' Soldier Field, Cleveland Browns' FirstEnergy Stadium, and the Denver Broncos' Empower Field are prime examples.

The Arizona Cardinals and Las Vegas Raiders also use Bermuda grass, even with their indoor stadiums. The Cardinals' State Farm Stadium can be transformed into a soccer field or even concerts whenever necessary.
