The Philadelphia Eagles are “America’s Team” — After 14 Other Ones
Good news: the Dallas Cowboys are no longer "America's team." The bad news: the Eagles didn't make the top ten. Worse news: the Eagles probably won't win the Super Bowl.
For over 35 years, the Dallas Cowboys have been known as "America’s Team," but that title seems to now belong to the Denver Broncos. A recent survey conducted by The Harris Poll asked over 2,500 adults who their two favorite NFL teams are. Taking the top spot away from the Cowboys for the first time in years was the Denver Broncos. Here are the top five teams:
- Denver Broncos
- New York Giants
- Green Bay Packers
- Dallas Cowboys
- Pittsburgh Steelers
So, what about the Eagles? The birds came in 15th place, tied with the Miami Dolphins. And all the way at the bottom, the Jacksonville Jaguars was named America's least favorite team.
The same survey also asked the same people who they thought would win the Super Bowl, regardless of who their favorite teams are. A majority of those surveyed (28%) said the Seattle Seahawks will win the big game, followed by the Broncos (19%), and the 49ers (9%). Only 2 percent of those polled say the Eagles will win.
