NotesEdit

  1. The NFL was originally named the American Professional Football Association (APFA) from 1920-1922
  2. The Cardinals were named the 1925 NFL Champions as a result of the league's controversial ruling concerning the Pottsville Maroons.
  3. Card-Pitt was a temporary merger between the Chicago Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers franchises' due to the effects of World War II had on player availability.
  4. Due to a strike-shortened season in 1982, all teams were ranked by conference instead of division. Therefore, the NFL ran its first and so far only 8 team per conference tournament. The top 8 teams in each conference made the playoffs.
