It’s been oft-said that the DALLAS COWBOYS are “AMERICA’S TEAM”, at least when it comes to football.

The Atlanta Braves claimed the same title for themselves for their ubiquitousness of games seen nationally on SUPERSTATION TBS back in the day.

But which BASEBALL, FOOTBALL, and BASKETBALL TEAMS REALLY ARE THOSE THAT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED “AMERICA’S TEAM” with the widest/largest fan bases?

ESPN took a look at this and came up with the following MOST POPULAR PROFESSIONAL SPORTS TEAMS for our benefit:

FOOTBALL

  1. Dallas Cowboys
  2. Green Bay Packers
  3. Philadelphia Eagles
  4. New England Patriots
  5. Pittsburgh Steelers

Guess why this is why we always see these same games on the national broadcasts during Football Season.

Who was in last place on the Football list?  The Jacksonville Jaguars

BASEBALL

  1. NY Yankees
  2. Boston Red Sox
  3. Chicago Cubs
  4. St Louis Cardinals

The Oakland A’s came up in last place on this list.

BASKETBALL

  2. Miami Heat
  3. Boston Celtics
