It’s the most wonderful time of the year, where 32 teams from across the United States battle weekly to secure every win possible on their quest for the Vince Lombardi trophy. NFL games used to take part on Sundays, then Mondays were added to the schedule, and now there is the beloved Thursday night matchup.

Then there is Canada’s own CFL, which boasts 9 teams to its arsenal. The coveted Grey Cup matchup is just a few months away and playoffs are fast approaching. c
