We tested the knowledge of ten British students on the subject of a game that most of them knew barely anything about: American Football. Looking at the Super Bowl, the NFL and it's tricks, tactics and teams, we delve into a vast array of misconceptions.
We got shown on ESPN in the US! Watch: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Huge apologies to Liam and Luca, whose names got mixed up in the edit!
Vague definitions of the sports terms mentioned in the video:
SCRIMMAGE: An imaginary line that stretches across the field which players cannot cross, OR a synonym for a "friendly" match with no competitive outcome
NICKELBACK: The name for a fifth defensive back, whereas four would be the norm
SNAP: Term for when the ball is thrown backwards from the line of scrimmage
TIGHT END: Offensive position, usually for players also good at defensive techniques
SACK: Term for when a quarterback is tackled before passing the ball forwards
MADDEN: John Madden is a legendary NFL coach, player and commentator and today brands the annual EA Sports NFL video games
