Forbes.com has posted the values of the 32 teams in the National Football League. With the average NFL team worth $957 million, the league has convincingly topped revenues over all professional sports in the world. Which 5 teams topped the NFL’s list of most valuable teams?

#5 – Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles from Philly boast a worth of $1.1 billion, which make it a smart investment for owner Jeffrey Lurie, who bought the team for $185 million in 1994.

#4 – Houston Texans
An NFL franchise, not even 10 years old, the Texans come in at number 4 with a value of $1.1 billion. Even with 56 losses over the last 5 seasons, owner Robert McNair has no problem filling seats at Relient Stadium.

#3 – New England Patriots
Undoubtedly one of the most successful NFL teams, the Patriots break the top 3 with a value of $1.2 billion. Owner, Robert Kraft, not only brings in $40 million a year from Gillette Stadium, but holds 70 regular season wins over the last six years, not to mention 3 Super Bowl titles.

#2 – Washington Redskins
The Redskins from D.C. come in at number 2 with a value of $1.5 billion. Increasing stadium revenue to 150% since 1999, owner Daniel Snyder is forced to spend his earnings on coaching due to salary restrictions.

#1 – Dallas Cowboys
The most valuable team in the NFL is none other than Jerry Jones’ own Dallas Cowboys with a value of $1.5 billion. Jones can easily increase his operating income to $100 million with a new stadium in Arlington.
