Most Popular NFL Teams

The Top TenXW

1Packers

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.

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.

I don't think they are Dallas Cowboys are Americas team

2Patriots

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

The Patriots did not deserve to win the SuperBowl. The Seahawks played an honest and fair game while the Pats had to cheat their way to the top. Also, Tom Brady, the prick, he broke up with his pregnant girlfriend to be with a model who is now his wife. I don't understand how you people are proud to be Pats fans. It honestly makes zero sense. Like geez! And I hope Tom Brady knows that it he is an embarrassment. Ok so I have one more question for you...If God is not a Seahawks fan, why is the grass green and the sky blue? Thank you for reading my comment and an awesome day. Go hawks!

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

I see why the Packers are number one, but the Patriots is a better overall franchise.

3Steelers

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.

Pittsburgh has fans all over the world.

4Cowboys

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!

Fan for life go cowboy's

5Eagles

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 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.

Eagles fans are either one of two things: extremely loyal or extremely ignorant. I mean, seriously you know you are a bad team when you've been around since the 1930s and have never done anything worth recognition. With no Super Bowl titles in 80+ years, this team will never win a Super Bowl. And plus they will forever be crushed by the Cowboys, Redskins and Giants.

Eagles are awesome

649ers

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

The 49ers is the best team to me but they need to step up there game because they are getting suck

7Seahawks

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.

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).

I admire this team. The Seahawks are the best team currently in the league. They can easily demoralize the Broncos, crush the Packers, and show the Patriots who's boss. The only team that I think may give the Seahawks trouble is the Panthers.

Best team ever

8Ravens

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.

That Defense is the reason if your not a Ravens fan You don't like contact. They don't have to be your favorite, but you got to love them Ravens.

The Ravens are a great team all together and do not deserve to be under eagles who have no buiessness there the cowboys who had 1 good season and sucked after that and the patriots are a non good low down cheating team that does not deserve to even be in the NFL!

If had old players would of went to Superbowl

9Broncos

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.

Love the Broncos.

10Giants

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.

Long suffering Giants fan. Gotta support the team through the good times and The awful times!

Giants are really bad pats are way better

The Contenders

11Lions

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!

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

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

I feel bad for the poor lions they rarely even get in playoffs games

12Colts

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

13Falcons

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!

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.

When Vick was arrested they went down but they are about to come back just hope cowboys win next year

Great offense

14Bengals

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

15Dolphins

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

I miss Dan Marino

16Panthers

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

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.

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.

There awesome!

17Saints

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

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

18Bears

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.

Had the Greatest Team of all time in 1985, and they have the BEST FANS IN THE NFL!

19Chargers

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

They are not to good but I am a big fan

20Redskins

If you are born a skins fan you die a skins fan. When you ask a skins fan any year who will make it to the playoffs they will say either the skins or ask me next year this year is a building year. I don't know if you ever notice but when you look in the stands of a skin game they stay on their feet. And finally I bring up the vocab of skins fans I mean the first skins game I went to I was shocked and I learned around 3 new curse words. This team should be #1

I'm a die hard Redskins fan and I have been to many of the redskins game. Everyone is chanting "Hail to the Redskins". Every time I go to a redskins game, it's always so loud and so intense. I never see one Redskins fan sitting in their chair when the Redskins have the ball. Yes I know that the Redskins haven't been successful that much, but all I know is that to all of the redskins fans out there, they always stick with there team no matter what and I know for a fact that all redskins fans are die hard fans. In 2014, we went 4-12, but no one gave up on them and then think that's what makes redskins fans unique out of the other nfl teams. So I think that they should be at least in top 10. HTTR SKINSNATION

Gotta say, were the most loyal fanbase. Not saying we don't have our fair share of empty stadiums, but that was not the case until about 3 years ago. But were all still fans. Its just too damn expensive

The Washington red skins team is just racist, think about it
