2 Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers The 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 Packers have won 4 super bowls and 13 NFL championships.

Even though their divisional rivals (Chicago) have the most Hall of Fame appearances, I think Green Bay has the best franchise. Even though they have one less Superbowl win then Pittsburgh, the Packers may be the most feared team of all the NFL. Rodgers and Favre are both incredible quarterbacks and have good receivers to connect to.

With 13 NFL championship wins, the Packers have been a dominating force in every decade. In the 20's and 30's the Packers went undefeated at home for 5 years! They dominated the 60's with 5 championship wins. They had a bit of a dark spot in the 70s-80s, but we'd all like to forget those decades anyway (aside from 70's rock. ) In the past three decades they have always been at the top or near the top of the league. A force to be reckoned with. A beautiful engine built to move the ball forward. Go Pack! - ignoble

13 league championships (4 super bowls). 9 conference championships won. 27 playoff appearances. 13 time division champs. 81, 000 names on the season ticket wait list (with average of 30 year wait). Sold out stadium for over 45 years straight. Owned by the fans. Simply the best franchise in the NFL.

The Green Bay Packers define everything that is good in a professional sports franchise. They will always play outdoors (Like Chicago), wear the green & gold, and enjoy loyal fans win or lose.

3 New England Patriots New England Patriots The New England Patriots are a professional American football team based in the Greater Boston region. New England Patriots are one of the few teams to have 5+ wins in the Super Bowl.

The most Super Bowl wins. The most Super Bowl appearances. The most conference championship game appearances. The GOAT player. The GOAT coach. Plus they're from God's Country... New England!

No doubt about it!

They are tied for the most super bowls in the NFL with the Steelers and they have been to more super bowls than any NFL franchise. Add in the fact that they won all 6 of their super bowls with the same coach and quarterback, and the fact that their run has lasted longer than any dynasty in history and you have the best franchise in the NFL.

The Pats are tied with the Steelers for most Super Bowl wins (6). They have the most playoff wins (37) of all NFL teams. And they're the team with the best coach and QB in league history. Go Pats!

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

Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Steve Young, and Bill Walsh 5 super bowl rings

The 49ers are the greatest they had some of the greatest players off all time joe Montana jerry rice steve young patrick willis every time they set foot in the superbowl there bound to win

While the Steelers have the most SBs the 49ers have been good every decade except for the 70s. The Steelers were only good in two decades and the Packers weren't as good.

Best team ever. Third is an insult. Won super bowl in three consecutive decades. Biggest win in super bowl history, 55-10 demolition of the broncos. Best pound for pound player of all time in Jerry Rice, Montana and young at QB. West coast offense the most attractive and devastating ever. What more evidence do you need!

5 Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys The Dallas Cowboys are a professional American football team based in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. The Cowboys compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference East division.

Cowboys are second only behind the bears in franchise win %. (But have more Super Bowl than the bears) (oh and the steelers are ranked #14... Just to clear that up. ) they are The most winning team percentage wise in the NFL for the past 50 years. AND the Cowboys are (unlike the Steelers) playing in the toughest and most winning division in football. The NFC East has the record, appeared in 20 of the NFL Super Bowls, have, 12 Superbowl victories, and the Cowboys dominate the NFC East with 20 division championships, 28 playoff births, and 8 appearances. (All records) While the Steelers were able to practically walked into the Super Bowl at all those years, the Cowboys had to continuously play nfc champions 6 times year in and year out. (Eagles have never won a Super Bowl, but to say they're not competitors is stupid) Between the years 1990-1996 the NFC east won 5 out of the 6 Super Bowls! Cowboys won half of those, One of them against the Steelers. Tom Landry, Roger Staubach, America's ...more

BETTER THAN ANYONE! HOW ARE THE 49ERS ON THE LIST?!?! THE 49ERS WERE ONLY GOOD WITH DUMB HEAD WALSH

Should be around #5.

As long as Jerry Jones is still the owner and GM, the Cowboys (my team) will never ever win another Super Bowl again! - VioletParr89

Used to be great in the 70s, early 80s and 90s, but as long as Jerry Jones continues his horrible awful ownership, they will dip further in the listing as the years go on to the point that not even their beloved history will save them!

The NFL needs to outright remove Jerry Jones NOW as Cowboys owner! - VioletParr89

6 Denver Broncos Denver Broncos The 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.

Best team

Since 1977, the most consistent franchise in football. They never have more than a couple of down years, then they’re back stronger than ever.

One of the best owners in the League great players and great fans. And could win another Super Bowl in 2014 with Peyton manning

Since they won yet another SuperBowl with one of the best defenses ever, they deserve sixth or seventh.

7 New York Giants New York Giants The New York Giants are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

The Giants should at least be in the top four teams out there. Number 7? Hell no. They have won three superbowls. They had the greatest linebacker of all time in their franchise, coached by Bill Parcells. They have Coach Coughlin. They got the biggest runningback ever in the NFL (Not that it truely matters unless BJ is good which he is). They are at least one of the top four or five best. And the Redskins? Over the Giants? HELL NO.

One of the greatest teams of all time. No doubts at all. Who's the only team to beat the pats TWICE in the Super Bowl when no one else could even beat them ONCE? The giants. What team has received what are considered to be the top 2 catches of all time? The giants.

GO BIG BLUE ELI TO TYREE NUFF SAID
FUTURE HALL OF FAME PLAY

They won four Super Bowls, not three. And they've been to five!

8 Chicago Bears Chicago Bears The 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.

This is a joke! The Bears easily should be in the top 5. They were the first official NFL franchise, and they have the second most championships behind the packers. It's absolutely insane they are not even in the top 10!

Although not the most dominant in the super bowl era, there are certainly good in it, especially with the 85' Bears defense. Won 8 nfl championships before the super bowl era as well, and have set numerous records with iconic players (like Sid Luckman, Walter Payton, and Devin Hester just to name a few). Also holds the biggest blowout in nfl history, 73-0 over the Washington Redskins.

You don't think they should be in the top 10 they had the highest blow out in NFL history aganist the Redskins for the NFL Championship 72 to 0 and beat the Patriots 42 to 0.

The Bears are one of the greatest franchises in the NFL. They are also the 2nd oldest team in the NFL.

9 Oakland Raiders Oakland Raiders The 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.

Howie Long, Marcus Allen, Ted Hendricks, Tim Brown, and John Madden 3 super bowl rings

No other franchise has had success from the early 1960s all the way to the early 2000s. The Raiders have some of the most famous players and coaches in nfl history. Al Davis, John Madden, Dave Casper, Gene Upshaw, Art Shell, Marcus Allen, Ken Stabler, Jim Plunkett, Fred Biletnikoff, Ray Guy, Howie Long, Jack Tatum, Ted Hendricks, Sebastian Janikowski, and Shane Lechler are ALL Hall of Famers who have played or worked for the raiders! JUST WIN BABY!

This is all time. What were you born in the 2000's. all time means for the entirety of a team exitance. Oakland only team to ever in a super bowl in 3 different decades, went to playoffs 19 times in 20 years. And got seriously jobbed by by referees in emaculate reception game, phantom fumble game & tuck rule game or they would probably have 2 or 3 more Super Bowl titles. Do your research before making a narrow minded comment.

What they stink and they haven't been in the playoffs since 2003

10 Washington Redskins Washington Redskins The Washington Redskins are a professional American football team based in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

the largest stadium, the history, band, fight song, hall of famers, quarterbacks, revenue, 3 rings, 2 championships, all the division championships, nfc championships, and hall of fame coaches, the hogs, come on! how much more do I have to mention for them to be in the TOP 5 and get the cowGIRLS outta there?
- Pag1

They are an AMAZINg story always winning when no one had any hope it's like a fairy tale they're just so inspiring and the most influential team ever with amazing fans

THE SKINS ALSO WON OTHER NFL CHAMPIONSHIPS BEFORE THERE WAS A SUPERBOWL.

11 Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins The Miami Dolphins are a professional American football franchise located in the Miami metropolitan area.

Dan Marino, Mark Clayton, Mercury Morris, and Don Shula 2 super bowl rings 17-0 season

Only one team was close to tie the best record in football that was the pats in 07 but lost, Anyway the 72 Dolphins were one of or the best team in football. - htoutlaws2012

Only undefeated team. Won back to back super bowls. The Vikings (who are ranked 10 as of May 17 2015), I belive have never won one a super bowl, let alone been to one. Fins have many HOFers and Marino has set standards high for passing records before passing was a big deal. You ask me, Fins are a top ten franchise.

Should be higher

12 Minnesota Vikings Minnesota Vikings The Minnesota Vikings are an American football team based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Vikings joined the National Football League as an expansion team in 1960, and first took the field for the 1961 season.

One's they get that one super bowl victory the whole thing changes!

Easily the best franchise to never win the Super Bowl (though they have won a championship in 1969). 1998 team was the third best offense of all time, the purple people eaters were one of the greatest defenses ever. If it weren't for pure bad luck the Vikings would have multiple rings, (Gary Anderson's missed field goal in 1998, getting cheated out of the big game in 2009 by the bounty gate saints, etc.

Purple People Eaters were one of the best defensive units of all time. Went through a rough patch, but are on the up and up again. New ownership may have finally gotten it together.

Moss, Carter, and fran! No one better

13 Baltimore Ravens Baltimore Ravens The 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.

They are behind teams that have never won the superbowl

The Ravens should be ranked way higher, maybe not top 5 but this survey is ridiculous.

This one of the most senseless rankings I've seen. It's just fans voting for their favorite team.. Like I did

When you realize how good the defense of the 2000-2003 time was it blows ones mind, they were loaded with players that have a reservation for canton, plus they alreday have 2 rings in 20 seasons, that 1 a decade which is to put simply, good.

14 Indianapolis Colts Indianapolis Colts The 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.

Should be higher than the ravens

Johnnie Unitas, Peyton Manning, and Marvin Harrison 2 super bowl rings

Number 4

J U is best QB ever

15 Philadelphia Eagles Philadelphia Eagles The 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.

The suck, bunch of losing seasons in their history, and not just that, the fans players are big mouths!

Best fan base and probably the best team to never win a super bowl but people forget that their original owner basically founded the NFL and they have three championships one coming against Vince Lombardis Packers they are the only team to beat Vince Lombardi in the postseason

The eagles might not have the rings to show for it but they have had amazing years, and more to come.

I'm a eagles fan but this team is not that good - Top10enner

Detroit Lions have not won or been to a super bowl but they do have good players, such as Matthew Stafford. They also have VERY loyal fans.

Sure they haven't won a Super Bowl, but wait! They currently have Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford, and one of the best defensive lines. They could easily make the playoffs.

Only team that has ever gone 0-16, such a great history there right? - mister83

Get over that TE pick gonna cause more hype for the Lions explain that awful pass defense then - htoutlaws2012
