The NFL played a 14-game season from 1961 until 1977. Before that, teams played a 12-game season. The 16-game schedule didn't start until the 1978 season.

How do you make a schedule for 16 teams for a basketball league?

Well, start off by creating a schedule for one of the teams with all 15 games on it (there is only 15 games because the other team is yourself, which you can't face). From there, put the games that team plays on the other teams schedules, which leads you to one full schedule and 15 schedules with one game. Continue creating a schedule for the next team, which means you will have 2 full schedules and 15 schedules with 2 games on it. Continue this, and eventually all of the schedules will be filled.
