Green means fully correct,  Blue partially correct,  red wholly incorrect

2. Name those  5 Head Coaches...who have coached since WWII....who have the 5 highest Win Loss percentages in their NFL coaching careers.   Hints: A. None are the same as the names in Q#1.....and B....there may be a surprise or 2 in there.

Belichick, Noll, Paul Brown,   BB and PB check....not Noll.    Note:  200 games is in reference to regular season games.  Noll did not win  200 regular season games (193)....unless you include postseason...which I did not here.   If you include postseason....then 9 HCs have won 200...including Noll. 

5. Two teams have won Championships in their history under  4 different Head coaches.    Name these two teams.

Packers, Colts    Check on Packers, not Colts  (Colts would have 4 IF you included the Colts 1968 "NFL Championship"  which they won...but then got beat in the Super Bowl III.  I do not include that as a title)   One more.

Atlanta, New York City  Neither is correct.

11. What is the newest stadium currently being used by an NFL team?
