Although the Seattle Seahawks have never won an NFL title in the team’s 35-year history, they’re easier to root for than most NFL teams.
That’s compared with the Detroit Lions, who were red-hot during the 1950s, winning National Football League championships in 1952, 1953 and 1957. They haven’t won since.
Despite reaching the Super Bowl only once in 35 years (five years ago), the Seahawks ranked higher than most teams, with only 12 NFL teams above them in the On Numbers Fan Difficulty Index. On Numbers is a research service of American City Business Journals
On Numbers analyzed all 32 pro football teams, seeking to identify the franchises that have consistently disappointed their fans. (Click here for the study’s methodology.) The results are in the database, which can be found here.
The Cleveland Browns are second on the list of NFL teams that are painful to support, followed by the Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs.
At the bottom of the scale are the New England Patriots. Three Super Bowl titles since 2001 have made the Patriots the easiest NFL team to root for.
