Official Duration: A standard football game consists of four quarters, each lasting 15 minutes. However, due to timeouts, stoppages, and other factors, the actual time can extend beyond that.
Halftime: Halftime usually lasts around 12 to 15 minutes in professional leagues like the NFL. It’s a break between the second and third quarters.
Stoppage Time: Unlike many other sports, the clock in football isn’t continuously running. It stops for various reasons, like incomplete passes, players going out of bounds, timeouts, injuries, penalties, or during certain game situations.
TV Broadcasts: Television broadcasts include commercial breaks, instant replays, analysis, and other segments, contributing to the overall length of the game.
