Miami Dolphins Are the 13th Most Popular NFL Team, Highest Ranking in Years
Despite the weekly disaster show on the field, the Miami Dolphins are at their highest level of popularity in years. That's according to a Harris Interactive poll that ranks the 32 NFL teams from America's most favorite to least. The Dolphins are America's 13th favorite team. Unlucky number as it might be, that's up from a 21st ranking last year and is the team's highest ranking since 2003.
The survey was taken between September 12 and 19, so its possible that despite the team's September 12 loss to the Patriots, the Monday Night Football showcase might have put the team on people's minds.
But asked, "Regardless of your favorite team, who do you think will win the Super Bowl this year?" only 1 percent of Americans picked the Dolphins.
