Most-Popular NFL Teams ON THE ROAD Stats Will Keep You Occupied for Hours
Someone computated how much scalped tickets cost, on average, depending on the visiting team. The results are FASCINATING!
This is an interesting take on who really drives the NFL.
Interesting, of course, because the highest out-of-town teams are multiple Super Bowl winners in different decades (49ers, Packers, Steelers, Cowboys).
The NFL continues to be a lot about tradition and history and past accomplishments -- and apparently there are a lot of bandwagon jumpers out there. Even though it's literally been 10 years since the Patriots won it all, they won 3 out of 4 in the early 2000s so where they land doesn't surprise me, but I did think it would be a bit higher.
Plus, teams that fit the above criteria but have not won in a long time (Dolphins, Raiders) seem to be losing their luster.
The Broncos and Seahawks are interesting in that the Broncos are now good again 15 years after their last Super Bowl title and the Seahawks are #8 based on the strength of the team over the past 3 seasons.
