NFL Records and History

Think you know something about National Football League (NFL) records and history? I’ve put together some sports trivia questions from the history of the NFL with regard to NFL records and history, both single season and career that I think any football fan would be interested in.

You may find some of these NFL records trivia questions a little easier than some of the others, but I think you will find all of them to be challenging.

Scoring:

20 correct – You are a serious NFL fan. For the upcoming season, you only need to notify the NFL one week in advance as to which game you would like to see. They will arrange to charter a private jet to take you and a friend to that game. (Since we are making all of this up, let’s make it all expenses paid, too.)

16-19 correct – You are awarded two lifetime tickets to all home games of your favorite team.

11-15 correct – You are awarded free season tickets to all home games of your favorite team.

6-10 correct – You get two tickets to this week’s game and show up to the stadium only to find out it’s an away game.

0-5 correct – You are forced to wear your underwear on the outside of your pants and hold a sign that reads, "I will not try to answer any more NFL records trivia."

Good luck!
