From reference 1:

"A football field (including the two end zones) is 360 feet long and 160 feet wide for a total of 57,600 square feet. When you take away the two 30-foot-long end zones at each end, the field is 48,000 square feet, making an acre about 91% of the field.

An acre, which is a common measurement of land area, is equal to 43,560 square feet."

One acre is slightly less than 91 yards on an American Football field, with the full field, including the end zones, covering approximately 1.32 acres.

On a football field of 100 yards X 53 yards, one acre would be the area from one 0 yard line to 91 yards and one ft.

Including end zones, which are certainly within the field of play, a tad less than 1 and 1/3 acres (1.31 to be more precise.
