  • NYG GAMES 11 MINUTES????????

    Has anyone else timed this. Wow if this is right no sense just get red zone only.

    the average amount of time the ball is in play on the field during an NFL game is about 11 minutes.

    You just figured this out now?

    Time a baseball game some day ... it's even worse.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

      Football—at least the American version—is the rare sport where it's common for the clock to run for long periods of time while nothing is happening. Ummm, has the guy who wrote that ever watched soccer? The clock NEVER tops there...

            I'm sure golf would be the worst.

            I like the breaks in NFL. It adds to the emotional ride when you're sweating out each 30 second segment.

              Well, I think they should include the time spent at the line of scrimmage before the ball is snapped. That's a pretty important moment there. I like watching the quick chess match going on there between the offense and defense. Defenses doing their best to disguise their coverage/plan and the QB analyzing and deciphering what they're about to do and audibling into a different play if he needs to. It's one of my favorite parts of the game.

                Football has been very, very good to us.
                After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                4-New York Giants!!!
                5-NE
                Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!
