Today’s Quarantine Quiz surrounds the NFL – American Football. This quiz is all for novices so, if you don’t know your touchdowns from your touchbacks, this could be the quiz for you.

Obviously things are tough for us all, and look like they’ll only get tougher in the coming weeks and months – hopefully these quizzes can help ease some of the boredom, even if it’s just for a few minutes.

Please, stay safe and stay at home.
