Duration and time stoppages

Rules

For the most part, the NFL still plays in a time zone with a half hour difference. A full 8 hours separates the end of the regular season and the start of the playoffs. However, the NFL has started to use advance-day scheduling to incorporate the second half of games into its schedule. For example, the New England Patriots play at home against the Buffalo Bills at 4:00 p.m. on a Thursday. During the regular season, CBS would broadcast the game at 7:00 p.m. on a Thursday, but with the NFL's advance-day scheduling, the game would be played on a Thursday at 7:00 p.m. on a Monday. This would continue for the playoffs and the Super Bowl.

In the playoffs, the game would be played on a Monday at 7:00 p.m. on a Thursday. The game's most important play is usually the touchdown or winning field goal. The most common type of play: up-and-under, is when a player runs as a runner in the open field and the defense can't handle it. It's called a "punt" because of its similarity to a traditional, running play. The most common type of play is run-pass option.

The NFL, college and high school games are held on Sundays, with the regular season ending on Monday night. The NFL has stepped up its efforts to increase the number of games on Sundays, which makes its Sunday afternoon games even more important to the local communities. With the NFL's three weeks of games in the books, the league will have to work hard to get the rest of the season started in time for the Super Bowl in February.

The game week is expected to be shortened from its typical four weeks to three weeks. The league is also expected to make a major push to increase the number of regular season games, which will mean taking games off in the middle of the season to give players a chance to rest and re-charge before the playoffs. "We're all concerned about making sure we get the best product possible on the field, and that means maximizing the number of games on Sundays," said NFL vice president of football operations Troy Vincent.
