Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to the National Football League (NFL). This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.

Naming conventions[edit]

  • For dates pertaining to the regular season and playoffs held prior to the AFL–NFL Merger, the year should be in which the majority of the season was held.
  • For playoffs after the AFL–NFL Merger, the year should be in the form 20xx-yy. This is a compromise between die-hard and casual fans. Prior to the 1980s, most of the playoff games were in December. Currently, they are all in January and sometimes February. As a result, many die-hard fans still consider the playoffs leading to Super Bowl XXXIX as the 2004 playoffs while many casual fans call it the 2005 playoffs. The template {{NFL playoff year}} contains this logic and will generate the correct link for you.
    • For individual playoff games, the year should correspond with the regular season which preceded the playoffs of which the game was a part, not the year in which the game was played, for both pre- and post-merger games. For example, the 1998 NFC Championship Game was played on January 17, 1999, but followed the 1998 NFL season. See 1966 NFL Championship Game for a pre-merger example.
  • When referencing Pro Bowl selections for individual players, the year should be the year of the NFL season. Links should display the year of the season, but be piped to the appropriate Pro Bowl game. (ex. [[2008 Pro Bowl|2007]])
  • When referencing All-Pro selections for individual players, the year should be the year of the NFL season. Links should display the year of the season, but be piped to the All-Pro team. (ex. [[2007 All-Pro Team|2007]])
  • For articles pertaining to specific events or games, whenever a team name is used, it should be the team name at the time of the event, but link to the current team page (unless there are pages for the team in earlier forms).
  • Following the NFL's naming conventions and official record book, the Baltimore Ravens are considered a 1996 expansion team while the Cleveland Browns are considered to have suspended operations from 1996-1998.
