The National Football League is made up of two conferences, the AFC and NFC. Within each conference are four divisions - North, South, East and West. Of course, not all the teams fit so neatly into the framework provided by four very basic directional points. Are the Philadelphia Eagles in the east or north? And are they an NFC team or an AFC one? In this quiz, you'll identify the correct divisions of 15 different NFL teams. In case it helps, each division is represented at least once in the quiz. Good luck!
