How does the NFL league system work? I looked up the league last night and found there's the NFC and AFC and all that and that the AFC has 4 divisions: Northern, Southern, Western and Eastern (is that right?) but Kansas City and New England played each other last night and they're in different divisions....how does that work then? Could someone explain it to me please? Oh and which is better, AFC or NFC or are they just equivalent because the US is so huge and it's cutting down on travelling time?! Cheers!
