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.

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.

Yes! Lets go pack! - KidA

2Patriots

They have all New England and a bunch of bandwagons since they are so goof and I don't like bandwagons since I am not but at my school in DC the Redskins are the biggest team and the patriots are very close behind I see way more kids wearing patriots Jerseys than any other team and we are loyal after all the hard ship faced in past seasons the patriots deserve it in fact the patriot fans who stuck through all the losing deserve it more than anybody

Patriots deserve that super bowl and all you guys should just SHUT UP I think patriots are the best team ever so everyone who thinks they suck well look at your garbage team like green bay packers and the Seahawks don't even get me started! Thank you for reading my comment And one last thing go PATS

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!

They are popular but they are losers boo Brady

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.

The best team in the best city with the best fans.

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 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!

"America's team to the core! "
It's a shame Steelers have more Super Bowl wins, even though Steelers are
A good team. Dallas is just the best team. They're having a little trouble with their coaches, but they still have sweet cheerleaders!

The ONLY "America's Team"!

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..

They are actually pretty bad, in all honesty. Here's why - they've been around the NFL since the 60's but never have won a Super Bowl...no offense to Eagles fans... - dtheking

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.

Love my birds. Hate the cowgirls though. And the giants. The giants name themselves that to make up for their tiny you know what's.

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 agree Seahawks are the best, I say the top two teams for popularity and rating are Seahawks and pats. Seahawks will win super bowl L (50) and so forth.
Pats are a good team too but pats cheat and get away with it and that's just not right. but Seahawks now has Jimmie graham and some other really good players. Russell Wilson going to be the best if he keeps up the good work can maybe win 11 super bowls in a row. GO HAWKS!

I love the seahawks everyone says they suck! Who won the superbowl against the broncos? (I like the broncos too though)

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.

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

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.

I'm from Ohio and the Ravens is where it's at even no there in Maryland

9Broncos

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.

The Broncos are the best. We have the best fans, who are forever loyal, we have an amazing team, which has hosted some of the greatest players of all time, and we've had a long history of how we all look up to our players. Like the giant, larger-than life painting of TD, or the ultimate loyalty of the Barrel Man. All of these things are what makes us stand out, and it's what makes us the Denver Broncos.

Greates tfans ever even through are worst years, only one other team has sol out more games since the merger, and that is the redskins, and I have my doubts about that as of today, that poll was years ago

Broncos are BOSS They are the Best Team and should be #1

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!

Big Blue forever

The Contenders

11Lions

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

From Detroit. We stick with all our teams there even if they don't do well!

Because of mountains of charity work the players they have and the fact that they have no cheerleaders

Because people like underdog teams - KidA

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!

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!

The good part is that they can't even win 4 super bowls the other good news is you can't even beat the jags ;51 16

Best football team! By a long shot!

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.

Falcons were great in 2012. They blew it 2013. They aren't doing that good in 2014 either.

Falcons for life

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

Everybody says the Bengals suck well quit being jelly and realize they are one of the best out there and like any team can could do what the bengals did

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.

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 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.

Dolphins are beast

The Saints are really Americas team bar none

17Bears

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.

Bears will have a pretty better season because they are against the Jaguars, Titans, Colts, Giants, etc. - Tacocheese

18Panthers

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.

GREAT team. They are undefeated and they've earned their spot this season. People can say what they want, but numbers don't lie. Get it CAM! Get it STAR! BEAST ON THEM

They won the super bowl 2016! enough said

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

Like them but fourth favorite team

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
