NFL - definition of NFL in Encyclopedia (2893 words)
The NFL's current makeup and geographic expanse, as well as its style of play, rules, media coverage, playoffs and championship games, were enhanced by its merger with the American Football League, effective with the 1970 season.
Although the NFL in 2004 is dominated at virtually every position by African-American athletes, that was not always the case.
For example, CBS' The NFL Today was the first pre-game show to have a female co-hostess, (Phyllis George); and NBC made history in the 1980s with announcerless football, one-announcer football, and even the first female play-by-play football announcer (which in its own way, set the mold for female sportscasters of today).
Michael Vick (219 words)
Michael Vick (born June 26, 1980 in Newport News, Virginia) is an American football quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons NFL franchise.
On January 4, 2003, the Atlanta Falcons led by Michael Vick stunned the Green Bay Packers by breaking the undefeated streak for the Packers at Lambeau Field in the playoffs.
During a 2003 pre-season game between the Baltimore Ravens, Michael Vick fractured his right fibula and missed most of the 2003 NFL season.
