Jaguars ahead of the Rams and KC?@Jay3434

Dolphins at 14 is a joke they can’t even sellout games. Lions,Cards,Jets,Chargers all ahead of Browns just isn’t right.@ConradMorgan23

Jags over the Chiefs? Really?@jroc967

While other fans argue over who’s better than who, Cowboys fans are sitting just fine at the top of the list. This is no surprise as they had the highest average attendance last season, according to Christina Gough of Statista. The Dallas home attendance average was outstanding at nearly 92,000. This was over 13,000 more on average than even the second highest team, the New York Jets.

Including standing room, the AT&T Stadium in which the Cowboys play can expand and holds roughly 105,000 fans which certainly helps their case. Having one of the largest stadiums in the NFL like this gives a huge advantage. Dallas Cowboys fans are also arguable the most wide-spread fans across the country and travel to road games extremely well.
