Best Answer

The Host Team and the visiting team each provides 12 balls per game. The balls are inspected before the game to ensure that they meet specifications. Of course each team also has many "non-game" practice balls on hand.

I heard during last night's Super Bowl that they had 140 footballs on hand for the game, but some believe it is 120. For use in the game, the Host Team and the visiting team each provides 12 balls per game. The balls are inspected before the game to ensure that they meet specifications. Of course each team also has many "non-game" practice balls on hand.

Two hours and 15 minutes prior to kickoff, both teams will be required to bring 24 footballs (12 primary and 12 back-up) to the Officials' Locker Room for inspection. Two Game Officials, designated by the Referee, will conduct the inspection and record the PSI measurement of each football.

Is a different ball used for kicking in the NFL?

The NFL provides a number of "new" unused balls for use in kicking in each game. They are used for kickoffs, punting, field goals, and extra points. The stated object of having special balls is to minimize the effect of ball wear on kicking accuracy. However, the reason they were instituted was due to complaints over teams using "doctored" balls to gain a kicking advantage. However, because they are not used in other play, they differ from the balls that kickers use in practice. So many NFL kickers can be seen beating, squeezing, or working a ball before a kickoff. They are used to kicking a 'beat up' ball. Some kickers have openly complained about the slickness of the K-balls.

Can the visiting team use their own footballs during a NFL game?

Unfortunately, no. It is the home team's responsibility to have 36 footballs, 24 for indoor games, ready to be checked by the head referee, with a pressure gauge, two hours prior to the game. Those balls must meet the NFL's requirements or they will not be used. Also, twelve new footballs, sealed in a special box and shipped by the manufacturer, will be opened in the officials' locker room two hours prior to the starting time of the game. These balls are to be specially marked with the letter "k" and used exclusively for the kicking game. Does that help?
