List Rules Only U.S. Cities

Of course big cities like New York and Miami have NFL teams, but there are plenty of other cities that should have a football team! The places on this list are the populous and thriving cities across the United States that are deserving of a home National Football League team. Many of these cities have nearby teams or hosted teams in the past but none currently have an NFL team to call their own.

For years, Los Angeles was the biggest city without its own NFL team. In 2016, however, the Rams moved back to LA, and in no time, the Chargers announced a move from San Diego to the City of Angels. With that, Los Angeles became easily one of the best sports cities in the US. Which other burgs around America deserve to enjoy a similar NFL renaissance?

After all, it's not just Southern California that constantly made the list of places that deserve an NFL team. Las Vegas is a popular pick for where fans would like to see a pro football franchise spring up, as are other Southwest cities like San Antonio, Texas, Salt Lake City, Utah, and Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Adding or moving NFL franchises is a highly debated topic on which not everyone will ever agree. Some want to see more action and closer but others argue that expansion means only more bad teams in the NFL. But what fun would sports be if fans didn't argue all the time? Which cities and states without NFL teams do you think should be on top of the list? Make your voice heard here!
