The 2008 NFL season was the 89th regular season of the National Football League, themed with the slogan "Believe in Now."

Super Bowl XLIII, the league's championship game, was at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on February 1, 2009, with the Pittsburgh Steelers coming out victorious over the Arizona Cardinals 27 - 23 and winning their NFL-record sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy. Conversely, the Detroit Lions became the first NFL team with an imperfect season since the strike-shortened 1982 NFL season, finishing their season 0-16.

The regular season began on September 4 with the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants defeating the Washington Redskins 16 - 7, and concluded with the 2009 Pro Bowl on February 8, 2009 in Honolulu.
