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 smallest market team in the NFL, as Green Bay's population is just over 100,000 people. Despite that, Lambeau Field is always full during games (capacity of around 70,000-80,000), which speaks a lot for how loved they are. The Packers are one of the most popular/ loved teams in the NFL. The championship trophy is named after a Packer's legend, and some of the best players to ever play, did so in Green Bay. The Packers won the first 2 "official" Super bowls. People who say Dallas is "America's team" are delusional, as America likes winners-the Cowboys haven't been since the 1990's. Green Bay is the ONLY team that will never leave their city, change owners, e tc. s ince the FANS own the Packers. If the US truly considers itself a "democratic" nation, then (with that in mind) the Packers are the only true "America's team" as they're the only NFL team that actually practices democracy-the fans own the team-not some old ass guy with too much ...more

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.

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.

Best team by far

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

We love our team and stand by them no matter what, so what? We're the most hated team in the NFL, we were accused of deflating footballs, our team is full of drama but that just shows how proud and loyal our fans are. Even through all of these win, looses, and critics

I live in San Antonio (grew up in Maine) and went to Dallas last year to watch my Pats play the Cowboys. Stadium noise was deafening in the beginning. By the end of the game chants of "Brady" could be heard everywhere. Great day

Patriots have been the most polarizing sports team in the world, never mind America. Everyone can't stop talking about them good or bad, the Patriots have become the Yankees of the NFL

Only because a couple of goats are on this team

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.

Go STEELERS. Pittsburgh's going to the super bowl. Yeah let's go 84,7,26...

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!

Go dallas cowboys

5BroncosThe 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

Prior to 1970, when the Denver Broncos of the AFL became part of the NFL, they have been a model of excellence, having won the Super Bowl three times, appearing a record-tying 8 times. They have reached the NFL's pinnacle of success by appearing in the Super Bowl in the 70s, 80's 90's, absence in the 00's and twice again in the 10's. There have been record sellout crowds, consistently since 1970. The city and metropolitan region showed their support in a region-wide ballot measure to construct the state of the art, one of the more architecturally interesting stadiums of the NFL. Without a doubt, the reigning Champions have been and will continue to be one of the NFL elite for many decades to come! BRONCOS!

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?

BEST TEAM EVER yet I also like the Seahawks!

6EaglesThe Philadelphia Eagles are a professional football franchise based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Eagles compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference East division.

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 live in undoubtedly the worst state. I want to move to Philadelphia just to be near the Eagles. I hope they rise like my other favorite, the steelers, so many people are counting on you, Eagles!

From Michigan. Let's go philly!

7SeahawksThe 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.

People, all-too-often, use the term "bandwagon" when referring to the Seahawks and their fans. It is simply ignorance on the part of people saying that. The Kingdome was *regularly* packed and sold-out, even when the Seahawks were a perennially mediocre team. I have been a fan for 38 years, and drove 3 hours to see them, even when they were 2-14. I agree with the person, below, who said that the team has always had a loyal fanbase... it's just that nobody bothered to look until they became a regular playoff team.

For years they were the underdog, but the past 5 years have been an absolute delight to follow.

849ersThe 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

I love this team!

9RavensThe 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.

The flock is all over the country, you can find a Ravens bar in pretty much every city, I'm from Chicago, never lived in Baltimore but I have always been a fan of the birds

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.

I like ravens 100 percent

10GiantsThe 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.

They r best team ever everyone else smells

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

The lions have an MVP caliber QB in Matthew Stafford

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

John Madden has said the Colts have the most loyal fans of any NFL team and it's true even in 2011 when the colts went 2-13 every seat at any game was still filled with colts fans

Colts need another super bowl hopefully tom brady doesn't do another deflate again

13DolphinsThe Miami Dolphins are a professional American football franchise located in the Miami metropolitan area.

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.

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.

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

They are awesome

14PanthersThe 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.

Panthers are greatly based all around with a power house defense and a almost as good offense. Go Panthers!

Carolina Panthers is my favorite football team

15RaidersThe 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!

Really fun, rough, tough, exciting and for the first time in a while VERY talented team. They've quietly put together a team with players among the NFL's best at several positions

Most Loyal Fans-win Lose or Tie raider fans are there-in All the elements! Go Raiders!

16SaintsThe New Orleans Saints are a professional American football team based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Saints currently compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference South division.

Should be higher up, definitely above Dallas. The Saints have replaced them as America's team!

Win or lose the fans are friendly and always looking to enjoy the fun of the game

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

Saints are the best should be #1

17BengalsThe 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

Love the bengals

18FalconsThe 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.

Dirty bird for life!

19BearsThe 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.

When I join the NFL I want the be drafted as a Bear "Chicago"

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 team from California with class along with the 49ers

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

You suck hella bad ha
