About This Quiz

There are 11 players on the field at any given time in an NFL game, and that covers the offense and then the defense. Plus there are also special teams that have to fit in there somewhere, making up a total of the 53 players on an NFL team's active roster. Basically, there are a lot of positions to fill in any given team and their duties are pretty different. Comparing the quarterback to the cornerback is basically comparing apples to oranges. Vastly different skill sets are involved with vastly different focuses when it comes to the game. But what is certain is that when a player s good at what they do it makes the game a lot more fun to watch. Kind of makes you want to be part of the action, too, right?

Now we're not saying you need to be NFL-level skilled or anything like that, but supposing you were for a second, which position on the field do you think you'd be best suited for? Are you all about defense or do you want to get out there and score on offense? Is the other team afraid of you or out to get you? Take the quiz and find out!
