Ranking the 10 best NFL logos
10. Detroit Lions
Though the blue and white is very simple and there are definitely more detailed logos around the league, the shape itself is what makes it great. If there was a third color — even a simple grey — just to add another layer, this would turn a good logo into a great one.
9. Tennessee Titans
Something about this logo feels off, but even still — it’s one of the better in the NFL. The “T” within the rings represents a sword, the three red stars surrounding it are a nod to the Tennessee flag and the overall look of the comet is pretty neat.
8. Carolina Panthers
I feel like there is a lot of hate with this logo, which makes no sense considering how cool it is. While the majority of the logo is black, the hints of blue give it an almost neon-like vibe. Even with the odd shape, it's better than the other cat logos across the league.
7. New Orleans Saints
The Saints have a nice, clean logo using colors that represent their city well — not to mention, it’s one of only three fully symmetrical designs in the league (Dallas Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts) and this is by far the best.
6. Denver Broncos
Again, what a great color combination. Typically, logos that are mostly white aren’t anything special, but the orange with the thick blue boarder is very pleasing to the eyes.
5. Buffalo Bills
The Bills logo has a classic NFL vibe to it — even though there were a solid 14 years of figuring it out until they got it right. The red stripe breaks up the solid blue buffalo but the two bold colors are strong enough to make a statement. This is a timeless logo that many continue to love even after all these years.
4. Philadelphia Eagles
This is easily one of the better bird logos in the league. There’s just the right amount of contrast in color and it’s utilized in a subtle way. The light grey perfectly adds a bit of depth without overpowering and taking away from the image. The touch of the classic midnight green on the boarder just makes for a great overall logo. Go birds.
3. Atlanta Falcons
To whoever designed this logo: I hope you’re having a great day. This has everything you could want when representing a team — strong colors, a creative shape to symbolize the name and it isn’t too busy. You can clearly see the falcon creates an “F” and while sometimes boarders are unnecessary, this grey one completes the look.
2. Houston Texans
It blows my mind that people look at the Cowboys logo and think it’s better than the Texans. While there are no shadows in the design, there is still dimension based on the shape of the image. This screams Texas.
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
While their most recent logo is just a cleaner version of the previous that had been in place since 1997, it gives a new, modern feel to it. The shading around the skull adds a new level of depth and the idea of the sword holding up the flag is just genius.
... It’s going to be so weird seeing Tom Brady in this uniform.
