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.
  • 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.
