It’s pretty commonly known that a football (American) field is 100 yards long (Ok, plus two ten-yard end zones). But, how wide is it?

Well, it turns out that a football field is 160 feet wide. That works out to 53 1/3 yards. Don’t ask me why it’s such an odd number of yards. That’s just the way it is.
