The top 10 most valuable franchises in the NFL

Though consistent, year-to-year success may be hard to come by in the NFL, winning doesn’t necessarily take precedence in team values.

On Monday, Forbes released its annual NFL franchise valuations, and the top two teams are no surprise — the Dallas Cowboys and the New England Patriots.

However, below them, there isn’t much stability in terms of winning records.

Market obviously plays a huge factor, as both New York teams ranked in the top 10, as did big cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington.

Interestingly, all teams saw growth over the past year, except for one — the Jets, which may be a result of what looks like a long, painful rebuilding effort.

Here’s the top 10:

  1. Dallas Cowboys — $US4.8B
  2. New England Patriots — $US3.7B
  3. New York Giants — $US3.3B
  4. Washington Redskins — $US3.1B
  5. San Francisco 49ers — $US3.05B
  6. Los Angeles Rams — $US3B
  7. Chicago Bears — $US2.85B
  8. Houston Texans — $US2.8B
  9. New York Jets — $US2.75B
  10. Philadelphia Eagles — $US2.65
