POLL: The Patriots and Cowboys are America's least-favorite NFL teams
A lot of people in America don't like the Patriots or Cowboys.
People in America don't agree on much, but apparently they can agree on at least one thing: their mutual hatred of the Cowboys and Patriots. According to a recent poll conducted by Public Policy Polling, New England and Dallas are America's two least-favorite NFL teams.
In the poll of 410 "self-described NFL fans," 23 percent of respondents said that the Patriots were their least-favorite team in the NFL. Another 20 percent said it was the Cowboys. No other team received over nine percent of the vote.
As it turns out, America seems to have a love-hate relationship with the Cowboys and Patriots, because they also did well in the favorite team category. The Patriots ranked third (11 percent of the vote) and the Cowboys ranked fourth (10 percent) on the list of America's favorite teams. Both teams finished behind the Packers and Panthers, who received 15 and 13 percent of the vote.
The poll was taken on Feb. 2 and 3, so it kind of makes sense that the Panthers are ranked high. On the other hand though, the Broncos didn't exactly get a Super Bowl bump: Denver was ranked as America's sixth-favorite team.
The poll also revealed that Cam Newton is pretty popular. The Panthers quarterback is viewed favorably by 57 percent of the country, which was well above Tom Brady's rating. The Patriots quarterback is only viewed favorably by 46 percent of the country.
Both those guys will probably be happy to know that they're way ahead of Roger Goodell, who's only viewed favorably by 19 percent of the country.
