All 32 NFL franchises made Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s 50 most valuable sports teams for 2012. It’s also no surprise the top two teams are heated rivals from the league’s highest-profile division, the NFC East.
Jerry Jones’ Dallas Cowboys ($1.85 billion) trump Daniel Synder’s Washington Redskins ($1.56 billion) by a considerable margin for No. 1 overall. The Super Bowl champion New York Giants aren’t far behind at No. 4 valued at $1.3 billion. The Philadelphia Eagles round out the division’s financial prowess at No. 7, coming in at $1.16 billion.
In all, 15 NFL teams are worth $1 billion or more. The Jacksonville Jaguars, who turned their ownership over to Shad Khan this year, have the lowest value at $725 million.
