There are a total of 60 minutes (1 hour) in an NFL game, with 15 minutes (1/4 hour) in a quarter (4 quarters in a game). However, NFL games go on much longer than 1 hour because of the halftime show, timeouts, clock stopping due to running out of bounds, and more.

How long is the ball in play in a game of rugby?

In total officially 80 minutes. (40 minutes in each half) The rule is that unless the Referee calls time off the ball is technically in play. When Time off is called the timers watch is stopped and the game is held until time on is called again. This means that there is no injury time in rugby. However, to end the game the referee waits until the wall is out of play. This means that 40 minutes may pass and the ball is still being played the referee must wait for a break down in play be fore ending the game
