Exchange stores all media assets associated with a game in a single view. Games are displayed with the team logos, game date, and a count of the assets associated with it. Typically, a game will have at least seven files associated with it (offense, defense, and special teams files from both the home and away team and one full sequence file). Any other files associated with the game (PDF’s, XML’s, etc.) will also be displayed within the game. Teams are represented in each game file by their NFL four-character team code.
