Football Trivia

American football has been around since the early 1290s. Part of football trivia is that what is now known as the National Football league (NFL) started out as the American Professional Football Association (APFA). Jim Thorpe, a future Hall of Famer, was the first president. There were 14 teams that each paid $100 to join the league.

Here’s some football trivia for you that almost sounds like baseball trivia. Were you aware that in the 1934 season, there was a team known as the Brooklyn Dodgers? The Brooklyn Dodgers was also the name of a baseball team until they moved to Los Angeles to become the Los Angeles Dodgers. There were also two other APFA teams that had baseball team names: the Pittsburg Pirates and the Cincinnati Reds. By 1959, the NFL had some competition. The American Football League (AFL) had formed. The AFL signed a five-year contract to have their games broadcast by ABC.

The NFL has had many great quarterbacks over the years. Here’s a little football trivia about quarterbacks. Did you know that Joe Montana, famed San Francisco 49ers quarterback was not drafted until the third round? Now he owns three Super Bowl rings and is in the Hall of Fame. Not bad for someone chosen in the third round. One quarterback who owns many NFL records, but no Super Bowl ring is Dan Marino of the Miami Dolphins. He set the record for career passing yards and most career touchdowns. In addition, he is the only quarterback to have thrown for over 400 touchdowns.

Do you love watching the Super Bowl? Its history is filled with football trivia. The first Super Bowl was held on January 15, 1967. It was between the Green Bay Packers of the NFL and the Kansas City Chiefs of the AFL. The Packers ended up winning Super Bowl I. They also won Super Bowl II. Do you know who won the most Super Bowls in the 1970s? It was the Pittsburg Steelers. They won four out of five Super Bowls between the years of 1975 and 1980.
