These NFL Trivia Questions can stump even the biggest NFL fans

These NFL Trivia questions are the best for NFL trivia with friends, family, or other NFL fans.

The NFL is America’s most popular sport. Of the 100 highest-rated television broadcasts in 2021, 75 were NFL games. By comparison, the NBA, NHL, and MLB combined for zero – that’s zero! - of the top 100 television broadcasts last year.

Every single NFL team averaged more than 50,000 fans per home game last season – and the Dallas Cowboys averaged over 93,000 fans to lead the league. The NFL earns over $15 billion per season and over $10 billion per year in television revenue alone.

Over 70% of Americans consider themselves NFL fans.
