Things not yet a part of the NFL (or APFA{American Professional Football Association} as it was called at the time):

overtime, plastic helmets(they were made out of leather), facemasks on helmets, designs on helmets, logos on helmets, hashmarks on the field.

Also, running was heavily dominant compared to the forward pass which back then could only be used 5 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Teams played wildly varying amounts of games with some playing as many as 20 and others playing closer to ten. There was no formal playoff system until just a single championship game was implemented in 1933.
