For the 14th consecutive season, the Dallas Cowboys have ranked top of Forbes’ annual list of NFL team valuations, becoming the first league club to surpass the $8 billion mark.

Incredibly, the Cowboys’ value jumped 23 percent from last year, with Jerry Jones’ club leading the rest of the league by some distance.

A number of factors can impact team value, including market size, team revenue, on-field success and more.

Dallas grossed $220 million in stadium ads and sponsorship revenue at AT&T Stadium, according to the report – more than twice that of any other club.

Second on the list is the New England Patriots, Robert Kraft’s franchise that has recorded the most Super Bowl appearances pf all time with 11.

Just behind them, valued at £6.2 billion comes the current Super Bowl Champions the LA Rams. Owner Stan Kroenke also has his finger in the Premier League pie as owner of London based team Arsenal.

Next come the New York Giants, the Chicago Bears, Washington Commanders, New York Jets and the San Francisco 49ers who come in at eighth on the list.

Following on from them are LA Raiders, the Philadelphia Eagles, the Houston Texans and the Denver Broncos, who were recently bought by 77-year-old Walmart heir Rob Walton, who has a personal fortune Forbes values at $58.7 billion.

While the Cowboys have been at the top since the first list in 2020, the Cincinnati Bengals have been at the bottom for all three editions.

Fresh off their first Super Bowl appearance in 33 years, the Bengals’ future is bright even though the team is valued at a league-worst $2.84 billion. They have an electric young QB-WR duo with Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase, and the franchise’s value should only increase if it becomes a perennial contender.

The other teams at the bottom of the list include the Detroit Lions ($2.86 billion), Jacksonville Jaguars ($2.94 billion), Buffalo Bills ($2.99 billion) and Arizona Cardinals ($3.17 billion).
