Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones


Not surprisingly, the Dallas Cowboys are at the top of a recently released poll by Forbes, ranking the NFL's most valuable teams.

Sure, the Cowboys have only won two playoff games in the last 17 years, but they still are "America's Team", toping the list for the seventh-consecutive year, with their worth tabbed at a league-high $2.3 billion.

The New England Patriots took the second spot, with a value of $1.8 billion, while the Washington Redskins ($1.7 billion), New York Giants ($1.55 billion), and Houston Texans ($1.45 billion) round out the top five.

The rest of the top ten includes the New York Jets ($1.38 billion), Philadelphia Eagles ($1.31 billion), Chicago Bears ($1.25 billion), Baltimore Ravens ($1.22 billion), and San Francisco 49ers ($1.22 billion).

The New Orleans Saints rank 23rd on the list, valued at ($1.004 billion), while the Oakland Raiders rank at the very bottom, at number 32, valued at $825 million.

The average NFL team is worth $1.17 billion, compared to $744 million for the average Major League Baseball team, and $509 million for the average NBA team.
