LIST OF NFL CHAMPIONS : Encyclopedia Entry (722 words)
This is a list of National Football League champions prior to the 1970 AFL-NFL Merger, that is, all the franchises that have won the championship of the National Football League.
Unlike the Super Bowl, which is contested at a neutral site, NFL championship games from 1933 to 1969 took place at the home field of one of the competing teams.
The NFL considers the Canton Bulldogs and the Cleveland Bulldogs to be separate franchises.
National Football League championships - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1908 words)
Rather, the champion was the team with the best record during the season, determined by winning percentage, with ties omitted.
After adding the expansion New Orleans Saints in 1967, the NFL split its 16 teams into two conferences with 2 divisions each: the Capitol and Century Divisions in the Eastern Conference, and the Coastal and Central Divisions in the Western Conference.
The three division champions in each conference were seeded 1 through 3 based on their regular season won-lost-tied record, with the wild card team in each conference as the 4 seed.
