Most Popular NFL Teams

The Top TenXW

1PackersThe Green Bay Packers are a professional American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division.

The only publicly owned team, and an objectively great one at that. Enough said. They are also not large enough to never be the underdogs; when was the last time you heard the Steelers, Cowboys, or Patriots were underdogs? Yeah, that is what I thought. People like cheering for the underdogs. Cowboys and Patriots are too arrogant, and while the Steelers are impressive, they border on too impressive. Some flaws are nice. The Packers give exciting games and are usually excellent, but having the occasional off games adds that much more tension.

Just look at their fan support. It's hard to ignore a team that has been selling out games for years, even during their worst times.

Founded in 1919, its one of the last remaining 'small town' NFL teams. Curly Lambeau, Don Hudson, Vince Lombardi, Bart Star, Brett Favre, Reggie White, and Aaron Rodgers just to name a few of the great players/coaches. Won the first two super bowls, and two more. Almost always make the playoffs. Community owned, with a stadium that has sold out every game since 1966. Should be #1.

Old school team with a lot of up and down yet sold out games and the best at travelling can-side.

2PatriotsThe New England Patriots are a professional American football team based in the Greater Boston region.

Unfortunately, best franchise in NFL. They do it with average players. Plus, I love visiting New England Great Beaches, Mountains, Lakes and their football team.

Hey you guy who just said the patriots should not have won the super bowl well first of all they did so BOOM and second of all the seahawks SUCK HORRIBLY

Definitely a great, popular team. All of New England cheering them on, and some other fans in different places. (Granted, NE doesn't have a population like New York or Texas, or Cal., but those have multiple teams each (Texans, Cowboys Chargers, 49ers Jets, Bills, Giants,etc.) - AlGalaxy

Best team ever I'm gonna where brady jersey on forth

3SteelersThe Pittsburgh Steelers are a professional American football team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, that competes in the National Football League.

This should be right, minus the Pats in the 1 spot. 1 Pittsburgh, 2 Dallas, 3 Green Bay and the Pats make the top 10 somewhere. Pittsburgh is the team though! ONLY the Steelers can go into someone elses home and over take it. I went to the Steelers-Titans game in Nashaveille this year and it was 2/3 Steelers fans, in Tennessee! Look at Superbowl XL, did the Seahawks get a fan in that game? Same with the Cards Superbowl. Even Jerry-World couldn't keep 20, 000 Steelers fans out! HERE WE GO STEELERS!

The question is the most popular, not your favorite team. Around the nation, the Steelers are probably the most liked team overall. More people dislike the Patriots then the Steelers, and although the Steelers aren't my favorite team they should be number one due to the great number of people who have liked the Steelers over the years as opposed to the number of people who don't like them.

The Steelers easily have the largest national fan base, as you can see by going to any Steelers away game: you wouldn't even notice it was not a home game just by how many Pittsburgh fans are there! Also, which NFL team has won the most super bowls? The Steelers. One of the most loveable franchises, deserve that top spot.

All of steelers gear sell out the fastest because we are so popular I live somewhere outside of Pittsburgh and there are fans around every corner

4CowboysThe Dallas Cowboys are a professional American football team located in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex.

10 years down the road, when Brady is out and the Patriots are just an average team, they won't have a shot at this list. There are only a few teams that can make this list without having gone to a Superbowl in more than 20 years! Only team's like Green Bay, Pittsburgh, and Dallas will still make the top five year in and year out. Because everyone knows when Jerry Jones is out of the way, the Cowboys will be on top again. Until then, we just have to hope for luck, but the fan's will be there cheering. Whether they're in first place, or last, the Cowboys will always be "America's Team"!

The team has nationally broadcasted games every week! Win or loose people still care about this team. No one cared about the Pats before Brady, the Packers were ignored when they were bad, and no one gave a crap about the Steelers in the 80s. No matter how bad Dallas gets people still care. Patriots and Packers have the most bandwagon fans. Do you know how many Patriots fans live in LA or Packers fans in San Fran? Those are the most bandwagon. How many Packers fans in Cleveland? Pars fans in Buffalo? My god.

The only team that's relevant if they are winning or losing. If you're not a COWBOY fan you're a fan of the team they're playing, no matter who it is! COWBOYS4LIFE!

Cowboy nation is going to rise

549ersThe San Francisco 49ers are a professional American football team located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The 49ers are the best I have been faithful to them since I was born from when they were a really good team. I mean look at Joe Montana and Jerry Rice. All the Seahawks and patriot fans jump on the bandwagon because there all like ooh the Seahawks beat the 9ers once. So what just stay loyal to your team. And also the patriots are okay but their problem is that their fans don't even watch the games and brag about them. GO 49ERS

Montana, Rice, Young: 5 Super Bowls! -

They are the best team out there they are amazing and my favorite and always will be

Nothing Finer Than A 49er...Hands Down...

6Eagles

Love the Eagles always have. I'm from California but am a die hard Eagles fan. Every time I run into another fan while wearing our teams gear its like seeing a member of my family. Fly Eagles Fly Eagles Fly..

I became an eagles fan after I got a mike vick card out of a slot machine when I little. Ever since I have been a philly fan. Even though I live in Ohio and live around a lot of bengals fans I still see a lot of eagles fans.

I find this hard to believe. This has been my favorite team since I was a kid, and most people I talk to hate the eagles. So # 4 just doesn't seem right to me..32 I would believe.

I'm from Philly

7BroncosThe Denver Broncos are an American football team based in Denver, Colorado. The Broncos compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.

Because their the Broncos. Go to any stadium with the broncos fans there and you'll hear a butt load of people cheering. No way in the world the eagles or ravens or half of the teams above the broncos are more poplar and loved. Only less than 1% of people in america even go to this site and vote. I'm huge into the NFL and I never heard of it until I got bored. So sure on this website the broncos are 9th but in real life in america they are one or maybe 2 just maybe. But absolutely not 9 or any were under 2

We are with our team win or lose. Take a look at the sixties. Filled the stadium with a losing record. Record should be taken into account when determining the best. A lot of fans are only fair weather. By the way... I've been in Florida for 15 years and have never lost my loyalty. Sales cannot determine best either... Who can boast 1.1 million turned out for a victory parade on a weekday?

I live in the city of Calgary, and I have only seen 3 Broncos fans at my school, but we Broncos are loyal to our spectacular team. I've been raised as a bronco fan with guidance from my Colorado-born father and have been by their side ever since my first real game.

Boo broncos suck but Peyton is good

8SeahawksThe Seattle Seahawks are a professional American football franchise based in Seattle, Washington. The Seahawks compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference West division.

Seahawks fans are absolutely the best. They are competitive and fun, IF they are not hopping onto the bandwagon. Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch, and the Seahawks have gained popularity after beating the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. Russell Wilson has hosted a show on Nickelodeon and the people go crazy over the whole "Beast-mode Skittle" thing. I have been a Seahawks fan ever since I was born, when Matt Hasselbeck was QB. My dad took me to Buffalo Wild Wings and I sat there watching the game while chewing on some celery. Watch out Patriots... here we come. Go Hawks. We are all your twelfth man.

Seahawks have had a loyal fanbase since long before the days of Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman. People just don't know it because no one ever payed attention to them before they were good. I've been a 'Hawks fan since the day I started liking football, so I would know. We have an all-time winning record unlike most of the other teams and we've been to three Super Bowls in the last eleven years. Pretty good for an expansion team.

I've been a Seahawks fan since the very first game... and actually was in the Kingdom for the inaugural game. I feel sorry for fans whose team has never reached the level of success the Seahawks have achieved. It's been worth the wait to see them reach the top. I can believe it's possible this could be the team that wins more Super Bowls than any team in history (or the future).

Seahawks are one of my top 3 favorite teams

9GiantsThe New York Giants are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

I have loved the Giants since I could understand the game and I will continue to love them until the end. GIANTS 12TH!

Love New York. You're always on the edge of your seat watching big blue! They pull some crazy stunts sometimes.

They're really likable, I'm a giants fan and I don't hear as much hate towards us or the redskins compared to the Cowboys and Eagles. You can't hate Eli Manning, dude is a clutch QB, never says anything about anybody, and is as calm as they get. Bonus points for beating New England twice in the super bowl. Plus, OBJ is popular and Cruz used to be one of the best and hyped receivers in his prime. Not to forget, the fans who fill MetLife even if they're going 6-10.

Great team story book franchise

10RavensThe Baltimore Ravens are a professional American football team based in Baltimore, Maryland. The Ravens compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference North division.

Its true they being small would be since their around since the 90s. Not to long.

Speaking of the Redskins and your comment we have really passionate fans. God the Redskins are losers I know several people who just give up on them the Ravens are for real.

We have the most passionate fans because we are just glad we have a team. The reason why there's not a lot of us is because we share the redskins with us - andrewerdna100

If had old players would of went to Superbowl

The Contenders

11LionsThe Detroit Lions are a professional American football team based in Detroit, Michigan. The Lions compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division.

The Lions may be a joke to Bears and Packers fans, but this franchise isn't so bad at all. My favorite team is the Lions in the NFL. They started out in 1930 as the Portsmouth (Ohio) Spartans. The franchise won NFL championships in 1935, 1952, 1953, and 1957. Although the Lions haven't won or been to a Super Bowl, in 1991, they lost in the NFC championship to the Washington Redskins. It turns out that the franchise is something and fans just can't get enough of Calvin Johnson and Matthew Stafford. - RileyProwant

This franchise is on the rise! Many people say that we're screwed now that Calvin Johnson is gone, but I thought no otherwise. I believe that every single member of the team will seriously step up their game now that the league's greatest weapon no longer plays for them. I also truly believe that the Lions will win Super Bowl 51! Go Detroit!

Calvin Johnson is my favorite football player! I also like M Stafford, N Suh, and T Young! - Alpha101

They have Golden Tate III

12ColtsThe Indianapolis Colts are an American football team based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Colts compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

Peyton Manning is better than Tom Brady by far. He also has great commercials and is a better guy. Tom Brady didn't even shake Eli Manning's hand in the Super Bowl. I love the SUPER BOWL CHAMPION COLTS! GO COLTS!

The Colts are better than all teams especially with Peyton Manning Peyton Manning is by far the best quarterback in the whole league he's going the Hall of Fame when he can

Boo Colts we want this team to go down in their division so the Texans and the Jaguars will take the lead instead of the Colts. So like I was saying... boo Colts!

Colts are horrible so is peyton manning but tom brady is so much better

13PanthersThe Carolina Panthers are a professional American football team based in Charlotte, North Carolina, that competes in the National Football League.

Great team always showing support and love for the fan base in a smaller market major city. Great owner that respects their players, fans, and interest groups ( ie military, kids, et al ). Tickets are fairly priced and all seats in stadium are good for viewing. Parking around stadium is reasonable with a short walk to the field. Just be sure to enter in the gate your supposed to, the contracted and untrained staff is the only down fall for the experience. #keeppounding

Panthers are really nice to their fans and the fans like that so the panthers are really appreciated by people. They should at least be number 15 on this list.

Okay who has this team really played that's hard? There undefeated but they play almost the worst teams in the NFL. The saints almost beat the Panthers.

Cam Newton cried like a baby when he lost the Super Bowl.

14FalconsThe Atlanta Falcons are a professional American football team based in Atlanta, Georgia. The Falcons compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference South division.

Falcons have some of the most die hard fans you will ever see. We have many groups of fans dedicated to only talking falcon football year around!

I used to be a Seattle fan but when I watched my first falcons game they started to become my favorite team they might not be the best but they are defiantly the best underdogs

Been a fan of them dirty birds for a long time. And you don't have to go far to find someone sporting a falcons hat or shirt. Falcons nation runs deep.

I love them because they beat the Panthers.

15BearsThe Chicago Bears are a professional American football team in Chicago, Illinois. The Bears compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division.

The bears and packers have two of the most consistently loyal fan bases in the league. Most of the teams at the top are good right now but usually don't have fans when they aren't dominant.

One of the founding father franchises of the nfl, the bears will always be one of the best in the league. Today's elite teams can't match our history or traditions. Regardless of records we will always be one of the best.

If you like your heart broken, you'll love the Bears. They never disappoint. I'm also a Cubs fan.

The 85 bears are the best in nfl history in my opinion

16BengalsThe Cincinnati Bengals are a professional American football franchise based in Cincinnati, Ohio. The Bengals currently compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference North division.

I have been a Cincinnati fan since I was able to remember so like 6 and at first they were crap, I didn't care I loved staying loyal to my team no matter what, it was a great feeling. It made the wins more satisfying but recently its started to turn around and now I appreciate winning again, Who they! For Life

I don't care if we score in the middle or low on rankings, Cincinnati has a special place in my heart and in others' as well. They're improvement is fun to watch and I can't wait to see where they go this postseason. I believe!

It's so great to see Cincinnati succeed I miss the 80s andy dalton is the future for us WHODEY!
Also why do people hate on their jersey they have awesome jerseys

I don't care if they didn't make it to the play offs in the past 25 years there the most hard working team

Drew Brees is a beast I've liked the saints since I was little

I love the saints there fans are great and much much more

18DolphinsThe Miami Dolphins are a professional American football franchise located in the Miami metropolitan area.

Best team in the NFL by far. Surprised they don't win the Super Bowl every year. Not only are they the only team with an undefeated season, but their Quarterback- Ryan Tannehill also is the Quarterback with the most completions in a row.

They still remain the only team to go undefeated throughout a full season, playoffs and all. That continues to stand as the greatest feat any NFL franchise has obtained.

I love the Miami Dolphins! They are the best they are better than those stupid Cowboy. You have to admitt am I right! - ginn19

There the best team ever

19RaidersThe Oakland Raiders are a professional American football franchise based in Oakland, California. The Raiders began playing in 1960 as a member club of the American Football League; they have been a member club of the National Football League since the 1970 AFL–NFL merger.

They still have a manic about them win or loose, and the uniform will never be beaten.

Oakland Raiders are a world wide team! Not in the Top 10? Come on Man!

I think they're underrated. RAIDERS NATION FOREVER! I think that they'll improve in the coming years with their new draft picks.

20ChargersThe San Diego Chargers are a professional American football team based in San Diego, California. The Chargers compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.

The Charger definitely are on the top 3 in Mexico, so should be in the top 10.

Chargers are a clutch team, Definitely should be in the top 10 at least.

Chargers are a team from California with class along with the 49ers

Not my favorite but I still like them
