Again as per the link provided earlier which was stats through the first week of December during the 2013 NFL season at that time the NFL had averaged 80.5 pass plays, 53.1 rushing plays and 30.9 'other' plays - (kick-offs, punts, field goals and kneel downs as they don't count those as an offensive play. It is unclear if PAT's were included at all in that total). So that would be a total of 164.5 plays per game through the first three months of the 2013 NFL season. I have not found a quick and easy compilation online for the entire 2014 season which is why I'm going with those numbers.
The only thing I could find for CFL is 'between 155 - 165 plays per game'. .
Going by the CFL website's Play-by-Play numbering Last nights game had 160 plays. Last week's games had 162, 142, 165 (10 of those in OT) and 148. The week before that 159, 147, 152 and 173 (25 of those in overtime) and in Week One the totals were 151, 150, 154 and 147.
So if those numbers are accurate that is an average of 155 so far this season.
In other words for all intents and purposes there is little if any difference in the total numbers of plays one will see in a CFL game compared to an NFL game - which is a very different story from what the title of this thread would have you believe.
