Help with layout code

So I am a total newb when it comes to building anything in html css etc. I have a basic understanding, but beyond that I don't know much.
What I was hoping to get help with, is the standings containers. Right now the leagues Standings go vertically down the sides of the site, but I want them to go horizontally across the page.

What I want:
        AFC East AFC South AFC North AFC West NFC East NFC South NFC North NFC West

What it is now:
       AFC East
       AFC South
       AFC North
       AFC West

Any help that you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated.
