    TEAM INTRODUCTIONS
    
    Indianapolis-This team has great defensive power. Their weak passing attack 
    is made up by their running ability.
    
    Miami-With Marino as your quarterback, his incredible passing ability will 
    be the center of your offense, this offense tops the league in scoring, but 
    their defense is weak.
    
    Cleveland-The powerful running back Mack and quarterback Kosar are the 
    center of the offense. This team has real offensive power.
    
    Denver-Elway is a popular quarterback and is almost a one man team offense. 
    But the defense has its ups and downs.
    
    Seattle-Seatle is a team with a lot of talent. They’re coming of a strong 
    season, but can they win the championship.
    
    Los Angeles-The two running backs Allen and Jackson are the core of the team 
    and they display incredible strength as their running plays unfold. Their 
    defense is tough.
    
    Washington-This is an extremely well balanced and powerful team. They are 
    aiming for the championship with a consistent game.
    
    San Francisco-There are several stars on this team, including quarterback 
    Montana wide receiver rice and free safety Lott. They were said to be the 
    most powerful team last season.
    
    Dallas-Although a traditionally strong team, last season they seemed to 
    weaken. But never count them out. This year with running back Walker they 
    aim to make a comeback.
    
    New York-Superstar team leader Taylor holds the defense together which is 
    out to destroy any offense. Quarterback Simms is the key to their offense 
    and is counted on heavily.
    
    Chicago-Chicago was the top in defense last year. On offense, Chicago’s 
    rusher, Payton has been running circles around the defenses.
    
    Minnesota-Quarterback Kramer wide receiver Carter and running back Nelson 
    are the heart of the team, performing well executed plays.

    HOW TO WIN
    
    Passing-Always look for the open receiver never throw to a covered one 
    because it could end up an interception.
    
    Running-Always look for the hole and go as fast as you can and make sure you 
    use you stiff arm to avoid tackles.
    
    Interceptions-Control the player with the control cross and if you stay with 
    your opponent like a good defender, you’ll have a chance for an 
    interception.
