In American football there are 11 players on the field at one time but how many players make up the entire offensive side?

As far as the professional game is concerned, there can be a maximum of 45 players dressed for a National Football League game. Of these players 11 start on the offensive side and 11 start on the defensive side. In today's game, no player starts on both offense and defense. So that would leave 23 players on the team that do not start. Two of those players are the punter and placekicker. That leaves 21 players and of those players the breakdown of offense to defense is usually very close. So, of the 45 players that dress for a game, it would be safe to say that 21-22 of them are offensive players and 21-22 of them are defensive players.
