What Does Big Revenue Mean in the NFL?
For most of us, we just safely assume that money means success, of course, for anyone who knows the reality of the world, while this might seem true, it is not always the case.
If you were to base your Super Bowl bets off of the NFL team’s revenue, and not Fanduels Super Bowl odds, then you might be rather surprised.
Money is not always the route to success, for those of us who don’t have a lot of it, it sure seems like it is, but the truth is it’s about smarts, talent, and making the right choices. The NFL is perfect proof of this, you can have a massive revenue but not have made it to the Super Bowl in years!
Big revenue comes from smart investing, new media deals, and sponsorships.
The Most Revenue.
So, who do you think will have the highest revenue in the NFL? The answers might actually surprise you. Let’s take the time to have a look at the top 8 franchises with the highest revenue!
#1. The Dallas Cowboys
At the top is the Dallas Cowboys. These guys know what they’re doing when it comes to making cash. They have a revenue of $980 million! As a business, they have no peers, they have been the most valuable team for 13 years straight, and they do not seem to be slowing down.
The Cowboys are actually valued at $5 billion, and are the most valuable franchise in the world, across every sport!
#2. The New England Patriots.
Trailing behind ‘America’s Team’ is the New England Patriots. These guys are not made of as much money as the Cowboys are, but they’re paying their bills just fine, with a revenue of $630 million.
In fact, the Pats are learning a hard lesson, that life is easier when your quarterback is the best in the game. When Brady was in their roster they won a massive 6 Super Bowl titles, and with him gone, they are struggling.
However, their revenue is still going high, being one of the few two teams to be above that $600 million borders. So, it is not all doom and gloom!
#3. The New York Giants.
The Giants prove that money is not going to influence the outcome of the game. The Giants have not won a Super Bowl title in years, and they have barely seen the playoffs in recent years either. However, they are in the top three for highest revenue, at $547 million.
While they are not winning many games, and their 2021-2022 season has been less than brilliant, at least they are still bringing in the dough!
They are valued at $4.3 billion and are in the top four franchises when it comes to operating income. Even though they have won no more than five games per season in the last 5 years.
#4. The Houston Texans.
Next up is the Houston Texans, much like the Giants, they prove that money doesn’t equate to success and success doesn’t equate to money. They have a revenue of $530 million, and are valued at $3.3 billion!
While they are falling behind their division counterparts, it certainly is not taking a toll on their coffers.
#5. The San Francisco 49ers
In 5th place are the 49ers, who have a revenue of $530 million, with a value of $3.8 billion.
Of course, they have the influx of Silicon Valley cash to the area, which might be part of their high revenue. Let’s not forget their Super Bowl run. They are doing just fine, whatever happens. They’re hardly the Cowboys, but they’re hardly falling behind in terms of play or cash.
#6. The Philadelphia Eagles.
Then there are the Eagles. The Philadelphia Eagles have a revenue of $509 million, and a value of $3.4 billion. They have also done well in their games too, making three consistent playoff appearances, which has helped them to grow an extra 11% growth in value.
Although they have taken a step back of late, there are still playoff hopes for them!
#7. Washington Football Team.
Let’s not forget the Washington Football team, with a revenue of $504 million, and a value of $3.5 billion. They’re hardly at the top of the scoreboard this season, but they have had their share of division titles and playoff appearances in recent years.
They are a sort of middle ground, making plenty of cash and also being in a good position in terms of play too.
#8. The New York Jets.
Finally, the New York Jets, with $497 revenue and $3.55 billion value. They have not seen the playoffs since 2010 (which backs up our previous point), and they haven’t won their division since ‘02. While they are raking in the cash, they have less to say on the field.
