In below image of NFLConnect application the first row is showing the schedule of NFL matches. To understand the complexities of the NFL schedule, you first need to know how the league is structured. There are two conferences (the NFC and AFC), which are each broken into four divisions (North, East, South, and West), and each division is made up of four teams. Here is how we get 16 games in a regular season. Each team plays every other team in their division twice once at home and once on the road in inter-division play. Every team in your division then plays all four teams from a different division but still within your conference. When teams play against all four teams in a division from the other conference we call them inter-conference matchups. The last two matchups are determined by how well your team finished the regular season the year before and who you’re scheduled to play.
When user click on any of schedule match from first row, the match detail that contains team names, logo, and scores with quarter will display in second row.
There are two parts to every team name:
1) The location name which the team calls home and
2) The nickname of the team.
NFLConnect display scores in quarter wise. Collegiate and professional football games are 60 minutes long, divided into four quarters of 15 minutes each. In high school football, 12 minute quarters are usually played. The NFL use a 40-second play clock that starts immediately after the previous play ends. In the NFL, an automatic timeout is called by the officials when there are two minutes’ left in both the second and the fourth quarters, and overtime; this is most commonly referred to as the two-minute warning. If a game is tied at the end of four quarters, overtime is played. During the regular season in the NFL, one overtime period is played (with each team receiving two time outs), and each team receives one possession to score, unless one of them scores a touchdown or a safety on its first possession.
