Data proves Cleveland Browns are America’s Team
Fans all over the nation are pulling for the Cleveland Browns as they continue to prove they’re really America’s Team
With the recent resurgence in Cleveland Browns football, the country has been put on notice. A superstar “diva” receiver, the upstart quarterback with swagger out the wazoo, a fresh new head coach that burst onto the scene.
The Cleveland Browns are like the New York Knicks of football, the sport is just better when they’re winning games. Fandom runs deep and it runs rampant across the NFL.
Without a doubt, the most loyal fanbase in the league, Browns Nation and the Dawg Pound can be found nationwide. Looking outside of Ohio, where are all our Dawgs at?
According to Pickswise, Browns Nation stretches from coast to coast.
- New York
- South Carolina
Note: These rankings are based on data collected from analyzing Twitter activity. Information, including a map of fans, for all teams can be found here.
Several of these are understandably based solely on television markets, Pennsylvania and New York. Others are based more on where the players come from whether that be where they played college football or just where they are known for being from.
Looking at colleges, for instance, Texas, sitting at number eight on the list, has seen several notable college players play for Cleveland. Names such as Colt McCoy and Phil Dawson out of UT and Myles Garrett and Johnny Manziel out of Texas A&M.
Oklahoma being ranked in the top 15 is a no-brainer as Baker Mayfield tore up the college football scene coming out of OU en route to becoming the first overall pick and the face of the franchise.
With the success of the 2020 Browns, expect to see more and more fans appear nationwide. It may be time to say it, move over Cowboys! There’s a new America’s Team.
