Football has been the number one sport in America for a few decades now, and only continues to get more and more popular as time goes on.
Capturing the attention of millions of fans in the United States, and millions more around the world, your average NFL football game – regular-season game – was watched by just south of 20 million people in 2017, with 111.3 million people watching the Super Bowl that same year.
All 32 football franchises have dedicated and diehard fans, and all teams are beloved by certain subset of the NFL fan community. But some NFL football teams stand head and shoulders above the rest of the pack when it comes to using social media, and Instagram in particular.
Here they are!
The Dallas Cowboys
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that the most valuable sports team on the planet – in any league and any sport – would have one of the best Instagram accounts in the game today.
Jerry Jones purchased the team for $140 million in 1989, but today the Cowboys are worth $4 billion – even though they haven’t won a Super Bowl since 1996. They absolutely crush it on Instagram, though, with some of the most personality packed posts throughout the NFL.
The Pittsburgh Steelers
Another of the most beloved football team in the league today, and certainly one of the most winningest teams throughout history, the Pittsburgh Steelers have won six super Bowls throughout their history – one more ahead of anyone else.
Young, fun, and led by an incredibly successful and personable coach, the Pittsburgh Steelers kill it on Instagram during the season, but especially knock it out of the park in the off-season.
The New York Giants
The New York Giants do quite well on Instagram (and social media in general).
Led by two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Eli Manning as well as one of the league’s best young superstars in Odell Beckham Junior, this is a fun team to follow on the field but an even more fun team to follow on social media, too.
The New England Patriots
They have won five super Bowls in the last 18 years while going to eight in that same block of time – this team is led by coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady, two of the best to ever do it.
The New England Patriots have one of the best social media accounts in football, too.
A great sport to follow on Instagram
Many football teams use Instagram as well as other social media platforms. This is a must for the bigger teams especially and they really make the most out of using the platforms as well by doing regular updates as well as new and interesting things such as competitions.
It goes without saying that a lot of teams around have got thousands (sometimes even millions) of free IG followers with ease just because they are so popular and famous already in real life.
