Cowboys remain America’s (favorite) team


With so many polls currently focused on the Redskins, there’s another poll that centers on the Cowboys.

According to SportsBusiness Daily, a recent Harris Poll shows that the Cowboys remain the most popular team among American football fans.

The Cowboys remained on top since the last time the poll was conducted in 2011, even though the team hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2009.

The Packers climbed from No. 3 to No. 2, with the Broncos shooting from a tie for No. 17 to No. 3. (“But do they have multiple Super Bowl rings?” Jim Irsay possibly would say, before remembering that they in fact do.)

The Colts, in turn, dropped from No. 6 to No. 19.

Also dropping five or more spots were the Steelers (No. 2 to No. 7), the Redskins (No. 8 to No. 14), the Jets (tied for No. 9 to No. 15), the Falcons (No. 15 to No. 20), the Panthers (No. 20 to No. 27), and the Titans (No. 21 to No. 31).

Significant climbers included the 49ers (No. 16 to No. 8), the Seahawks (No. 27 to No. 12), the Raiders (No. 25 to tied for No. 16), and the Bengals (No. 31 to No. 24).

Holding steady at No. 32 were the Jaguars, who are now 2-20 since Shahid Khan bought the team in early 2012.
