American Football
AMERICAN FOOTBALL, referred to as FOOTBALL in the United States and Canada, and also known as "gridiron football " or simply "gridiron", is a sport played by two teams of eleven players on a rectangular field with goalposts at each end. The offense , the team with control of the oval-shaped football , attempts to advance down the field by running with or passing the ball, while the team without control of the ball, the defense, aims to stop their advance and take control of the ball for themselves. The offense must advance at least ten yards in four downs , or plays, or else they turn over the football to the opposing team; if they succeed, they are given a new set of four downs. Points are primarily scored by advancing the ball into the opposing team's end zone for a touchdown or kicking the ball through the opponent's goalposts for a field goal . The team with the most points at the end of a game wins

1993 NFL Season
The 1993 NFL SEASON was the 74th regular season of the National Football League . It was the only season in league history where all NFL teams played their 16-game schedule over a span of 18 weeks. After the success of expanding the regular season to a period of 17 weeks in 1990 , the league hoped this new schedule would generate even more revenue. This was also done to avoid scheduling playoff games on January 1 and competing with College football Bowl games. However, teams felt that having two weeks off during the regular season was too disruptive for their weekly routines, and thus it reverted to 17 weeks immediately after the season ended. When new TV contracts were signed in December 1993, CBS lost their rights to broadcasting NFC games to the then-fledgling Fox Network
