The Most Popular NFL Team by County
On Facebook, more than 1 in every 10 users in America "Likes" an NFL team. The social network has compiled this data into a map that displays fandom across all 50 states. There are few surprises (GASP! Packers fans in Wisconsin???), but it's a neat way to track people hopping on the Broncos and Seahawks bandwagons when you compare it with last year's map. For Jets fans wondering where their shade of green is, Facebook added this bummer of a disclaimer: "The New York Jets do not have a plurality of fans in any U.S. county."
Here's a similar map Facebook created for Major League Baseball.
