There is a total of thirty two NFL teams that we as people are fans of and they are; the Arizona Cardinals, the Atlanta Falcons, the Baltimore Ravens, the Buffalo Bills, the Carolina Panthers, the one time famous Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions,Green Bay Packers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans, and the Washington Redskins. Every football player on a team is needed in some way, shape or form. There are two parts to a team, offense and defense. With the football players that make up the offensive line-up there is five positions that make up a offensive line and they are called; the center, right and left guard, right and left tackle, tight end, wide receivers, running backs, and quarter backs. For the football player defense there are also several different parts, and they are; defensive line, nose guard, defensive tackles, defensive ends, linebackers, cornerbacks, and safety. But there is still some important football players missing that make the game complete and without them you wouldn't have a solid team. The other players needed on a football is the punter, field goal kicker, place holder and long snapper. All in all these men that play football whether it be professional, high school, or minor leagues, they all have to be physically fit, strong, agile, and fast.
