National Football Conference
The National Football Conference (NFC) is one of the two conferences of the National Football League (NFL). The NFC was created after the league merged with the American Football League (AFL) in early 1970. The NFC had 13 teams that year, all of which played in the NFL before the merger. Meanwhile, all of the former AFL teams along with the NFL's Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Baltimore Colts formed the American Football Conference (AFC).
