  • During a regular NFL game, you are likely to watch: 11 minutes of actual playing, 17 minutes of replays, 3 seconds of cheerleaders, and 67 minutes of just standing there.
  • It takes 3,000 cows to supply the leather for a year’s supply of footballs for the NFL.
  • The smallest playing NFL history is Jack “Soapy” Shapiro, who played blocking back for the Staten Island Stapletons in 1929; He was 5’1” and weighed 119 pounds.
  • That yellow line costs $20,000 per game. Just think: 16 games x 32 teams x 2 teams per game equals $5.12 million worth of yellow lines a year during the regular season!
  • 80% of all Super Bowl tickets go to corporate sponsors.
  • Pizza delivery drivers are in more accidents on Super Bowl Sunday than any other day of the year; there are 9 million pizza slices delivered on Super Bowl Sunday – 44% more than on a normal Sunday.
