Notsureiftrolling but Ill bite.

Pick a team you like for whatever reason aka a player, city, etc. Hell find a team that you like their uniforms for all I care. Start watching that team and soon youll learn players on that team and the good players of teams they play against. Buy a madden game and you will learn rules by playing and it will also help with players too. Thats how I learned mostly when I was younger.

You just have to watch the games. If you have NFL Network, you can watch the replay's of any game you want which will help you.

If you're watching a game and there's a penalty called and you have no clue why, listen to the call by the ref, and then go online to the NFL rulebook and read the rule so you can understand why it was called.

You really just have to watch the games. The more you watch, the more you will learn. Nobody is going to be able to explain the game to you in a way that watching the games won't for someone new to watching the NFL like you.

Go through the football wiki, that should get you through the basics, then play madden. Then watch games.
