    I always thought is was one team from the afc vs. one team from the nfc. How did that confuse you?

    Because this isn't the pro bowl? And the pro bowl isn't an entire team from each conference, it's individual players from different teams in each conference.

    From 1971 to 2008, and again in 2010, the opponents were one AFC team vs. one NFC team. In 2009, as recognition of the 50th season of the charter members of the American Football League, the game paired two of the 'original eight' franchises of that league, the Tennessee Titans (dressed as their previous incarnation, the Houston Oilers) and the Buffalo Bills, whose owner (Ralph Wilson) was inducted into the Hall that year. The two teams were chosen because Wilson and the Oilers'/Titans' owner, Bud Adams, were the last surviving original AFL owners still alive and owning their teams.

    NFL breaking tradition ...Thats the answer

    No one confused anything with anything. The game that's on right now is the HoF game, not the pro-bowl.

    Did you take your meds today?
