how many plays is realistic

What's the realistic number of plays to happen in a game? Im trying to get my timing right. I think I've heard 40 a quarter, but I've also heard 120 a game.

My last game, I got 51 plays in the 1st quarter, but that included 9 kickoff / field goal / extra point / punt plays, not just offensive snaps. Offensive snaps was more like 42, which is near enough the 40 per quarter mark. But itd be well above the 120 per game mark if that's more accurate. Im just wondering what I need to be shooting for.

i'd say 120 cause u figure most teams throw it atleast 20 times a game or more and atleast try 25 attempts rushing so 120 would be right if u throw in few more plays.

Okay so im looking for about 30 plays a quarter, -not including- kickoffs, punts, field goals, extra points, etc. Would that be accurate then?

Last year teams averaged 33.7 passes a game and 27.2 rushing attempts per game. so by doubling both of those numbers we get 67.4 passing attempts per game and 54.4 rushing attempts per game.

So with all that we have 121.8 plays a game.

Your number was right but your pass to run ratio wasn't right.

Pretty much. I'm currently playing on 12 minute quarters with the accelerated clock going down to 20 seconds and it works out perfectly. I kept track of the plays through my first ten plus games and I was averaging 122 plays per game.
