Packers fans ranked as No. 1 in NFL


(WAOW) – Not that Packers fans didn't know this already, but Forbes Magazine has ranked the green and gold faithful as the best fans in the NFL.

According to market research, 84 percent of adults in Green Bay are Packers fans, according to the magazine. The other 16 percent are described as people who didn't watch, attend and/or listen to Packers games in the past year.

The ranking system was based on five criteria, including hometown crowd reach, TV ratings, stadium attendance, merchandise sales and social media reach, according to Forbes.

Just another title to add to the trophy case.

Here's the top ten fans for teams ranked by Forbes:

#1 Green Bay Packers

#2 Denver Broncos

#3 New Orleans Saints

#4 New England Patriots

#5 Baltimore Ravens

#6 Indianapolis Colts

#7 (tie) Dallas Cowboys

#7 (tie) Pittsburgh Steelers

#9 Seattle Seahawks
