With the NFL season just around the corner, it’s time to put the focus on what a real pregnancy looks like.
Here’s a look at the 10 NFL teams with the most pregnancy weeks.
Green Bay Packers (1) In the wild-card game against the New York Giants, Aaron Rodgers was sacked by New York safety Michael Bennett.
He threw up, and when the Packers recovered, he was still on the field.
The next day, he had a baby boy.
After the game, he told reporters, “I didn’t think that day was going to be so hard.”
He wasn’t kidding.
Two days later, Rodgers threw a touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson in the NFC Championship Game.
Two weeks later, he got hit with a one-game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.
On Saturday, he and wife LaToya had a kid, Jacob.

New Orleans Saints (1.5) The Saints were playing the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII when the team decided to go with the two-touchdown strategy.
The decision was made after they watched the game with their wives, and they all wanted to have a baby.
In the locker room afterward, they were so overwhelmed with emotions that they couldn’t even think about it.
When the Broncos won the game in overtime, Brees told reporters he thought it was a “crazy” plan to go for the win in the fourth quarter.

San Diego Chargers (1).
The Chargers had a bye the following week and didn’t play until the following Sunday, when they lost in overtime to the Dallas Cowboys.
Before the game started, the team gave birth to a boy named Bryce.
The Chargers plan is to have him around the campfire every day, to have food and drink for the baby.
Oakland Raiders (1-0) In a game against Washington in which the Washington defense held a 17-0 lead, defensive lineman Chris Clemons was hit by a pass that bounced back and hit him in the neck.
He spent three days in the hospital, and after the game he said, “That was one of the most difficult times of my life.
I just wanted to be with him.
I wanted to give him a good, solid start to life.
But at the same time, I’m still dealing with the injury, so that was really hard.”
Cleveland Browns (1-) The Browns are one of two teams with zero pregnancy weeks in the NFL.
After winning Super Bowl LI, the Browns had their first-ever child on January 5.
In 2017, the NFL instituted new rules that prohibited players from having more than one child per season.
The Browns announced on January 26 that they will now have at least one child this year.
Tennessee Titans (1)- The Titans announced on March 10 that they would have a third child this coming season.
Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt had been hoping to have his third child in 2020.
However, he decided to delay the birth of his first son, Justin, who was born in May of that year.
Chicago Bears (0.5-0)- The Bears announced that they are planning on having a second child this upcoming season.
In a post on their Facebook page, the Bears wrote that their decision to keep the franchise family-friendly policy was “based on our experience in developing a positive culture that promotes health and well-being for all of our players.”
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-1)- A woman at the team’s training camp in May was pregnant with twins.
The team had to change its medical policy after the team learned of the pregnancy.
The Bucs announced in September that the team will no longer be able to have any children on the roster, but the team still plans to have one.
San Francisco 49ers (0) – After the 49ers lost to the Houston Texans in the first round of the 2017 NFL playoffs, coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that he hoped his team would be a “biblical team.”
However, Shanahan was criticized by players for the comments, and the 49er’s first-round loss to the Texans on January 6 was a loss that ended their season.
Detroit Lions (0-) After the Lions’ playoff loss to Seattle, coach Jim Caldwell announced that the Lions planned to have three children in 2019.
The Lions are now planning to not have any child in 2019 and will have two children in 2020, but Caldwell said that he is “still trying to get to that place where you’re not going to have to worry about any of the other kids, or the family dynamics of them.”
Chicago Broncos (0)- After being selected first overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, Broncos quarterback Connor Cook announced that
