If you've never watched an NFL game, brace yourself: It can sound like an entirely different language. From the opening coin toss where one team takes possession to the two-minute warning, the game can seem like a well-choreographed dance, one in which you don't know any of the steps! And, let's not forget overtime and all of its extra rules and terms.
When a team's on offense, there are things like the backfield, false starts and draw plays to consider. Flip sides of the field and the lingo doesn't get any simpler: encroachment, dime backs and bump-and-run coverage. If that doesn't intimidate you, how about the verbiage for the field itself: hash marks, pylons and the line of scrimmage. Doesn't it sound like the National Football League is a world all its own?
Now, it's time for you to enter this world and see how good you are at deciphering the NFL's language. Do you know a first down from a fair catch? What about the difference between holding and a hash mark? Test your football jargon and see if you're the GOAT or a bust! (In the football world, that means you're either the "Greatest Of All Time" or you failed to live up to expectations. Now ... hut hut! (That means start playing!)
