Best Answer

An NFL season consists of 16 regular season games.

Each team will begin with four preseason games. If a team makes the playoffs, they could play up to four more games (WildCard, Divisional, Conference Championship and Super Bowl).

There are 16 regular season games in an NFL season. After the regular season is over, the to two teams have a first round "bye". Meaning they don't have to play that week while the other 8 teams do. Those 10 playoff teams are comprised of the 8 division winners, as well as two wildcard teams- one team from both the NFC and AFC with the best record, but who didn't make the playoffs. After the first round of playoffs, there's the Divisional Championships, then the Conference Championships and last but not least the Super Bowl. So, there are 16 regular season games and 5 weeks (4 rounds) of playoffs.
