The AFC (American Football Conference) is one of the two NFL (National Football League) conferences in America. It is regarded as the highest qualified level of football in the USA. The NFL and the AFC are made up of sixteen teams each and they both make up thirty-two teams of the National Football League.
They were part of the 1970 union that was created with the rival AFL, with all of the ten teams in the old AFL and the three teams in the NFC; thereby creating the AFC. The remaining thirteen teams went on to form the NFC. As time went on, some changes came along in the union and resulting in the current setup of 16 teams in each conference.
