Sorry Dallas, You are no longer America’s team
According to The Harris Poll, which polled 2,543 adults (1,275 of whom follow professional football) between Sept. 10 and Sept. 17, the Denver Broncos were the most common answer fans gave when asked which team they follow most closely.
The Broncos moved up from third on last year’s list to unseat the Cowboys, who dropped to fourth. The Giants moved up from fourth to second, the Packers dropped from second to third and the Steelers rounded out the top five by moving from seventh to fifth.
The Broncos are also a common pick by fans to win the Super Bowl this year, with 19 percent of those polled choosing them as the likely Super Bowl XLIX champions.
