About This Quiz

Pinstripes, small hats and whistles; a referee's uniform can be quite attractive for those who think they know everything about the National Football League. Do you have knowledge of all of the rules and other aspects of the NFL? Do you think you could take the place of referees, especially the ones who are always getting calls wrong? Here's your chance to find out with this quiz!

The NFL is one of the most popular leagues in American team sports, with thousands of fans watching each week to keep up with trades and game action. However, since the league was founded, keeping up with the latter has only become more difficult since the rulebook has grown significantly over the years, leaving fans, players and coaches in a position where they are trying to understand the calls being made. 

Maybe that's not you, however, and instead, you know all the rules. Maybe you could even do a better job at calling a game than the referees. Does that sound like you? If it does, then give this quiz a try before you go yelling at the television about a call. After all, if you can pass this quiz, then you can probably referee a game in the NFL.
