    Emory University’s Goizueta School of Business has released its latest NFL Fandom Report, ranking the relative fan strengths of the 32 NFL franchises, and once again, the Cowboys lead the pack. Right behind them: the Patriots, Eagles, Giants and Steelers.

    The goal of the study is to use statistical analysis to determine the NFL’s “best” fans, judged on the entirety of the fanbase. In other words: every team has its core of religiously devoted, ride-or-die fans; the teams at the top of the list simply have many, many more.

    Dr. Lewis judges fan bases on three criteria: Fan Equity, Social Equity and Road Equity. Here’s how those break down.

    Fan Equity is a matter of judging how well fans support their team by backing up their words with dollars — i.e., how much they spend on everything from season tickets to jerseys. If a team fills its stadium but there’s not much demand past that, their Fan Equity score is lower.

    Social Equity is based on a team’s social media reach — i.e., how many followers the team has across various social media channels. A team that’s not able to draw many followers on social isn’t a team with a deep degree of Social Equity.

    Road Equity involves measuring how well a team draws on the road, adjusting for team performance. People show up to watch when the Cowboys or Steelers come to town. People don’t show up to watch when, say, the Bengals or Titans do. (Sorry, Cincy and Tennessee, but you know it’s true.)

    Texans have had a horrible franchise since the beginning but they still sellout all their games. How are they so low? Plus, I'm a Texan fan and yes, we are going to win the Super Bowl this year.

    Lions fans are very underrated in that list.... so much blind loyalty for the worst program in sports.

    Keep Dreaming. You will not get close to the Superbowl this season. You will be lucky to beat out Indy for your Division Championship. Pitt, Chargers, Chiefs, and the Pats are much better than Houston is.

    I'm a Texans fan also, but I don't even think we'll win the division this year.

    See, I knew it would take very few posts before the Eagles were brought up.

    However, BASED ON THE THREE CRITERIAS LISTED, how is this list wrong? It's a STUDY based on STATISTICS, not which fan base hurt your feelings the most. Or who tossed snowballs at your precious Santa 50 years ago..............

    Exactly

    Their fans suck, they're assholes, and they dont know anything about football.

    If it wasn't for Nick Foles team would still be irrelevant and best known for a terrible product on a terrible field in a terrible town.

    I initially thought this list was BS, but then I saw it came from the Emory University Goizueta School of Business

    Obviously I had to re think my position

    Rams is accurate ever since they moved to LA. Raiders and Chiefs should be higher.

    The Chiefs will be higher next season, thanks to Mahomes. There will be more people nationwide buying his gear and Chiefs gear and wanting to go see them play when they come to town. They really didn't have that big name player or star power before this past season that casual fans or fans outside of their base got excited about. It's been awhile since they had a real bonafide star on the team that could help them move merch. They should make a sizable jump next year in this ranking, would be higher if Hill and Hunt weren't boneheads.

    The Browns and Lions have a very loyal fan base. Not their fault that they have had crap for a team forever.

    Vikings are way too low. Chiefs too low. Both easily in the top 15. This list sucks.
