Arizona Cardinals one of least popular teams in NFL

But you already know that.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

If you are reading this, it means you are likely an Arizona Cardinals fan. That means that you are sort of a rare breed. Why? It turns out that the Arizona Cardinals are one of the least popular teams in the NFL.

An article on gives some data about fandom and professional teams, using search data from the Internet. When it comes to the NFL, the Cardinals are the third least searched team, ahead of only the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars.

They are searched on Google less than half than what is the average for all NFL teams.

This shouldn't be surprising.

The Cardinals, despite being a very, very old franchise, has historically been terrible. It has been in Arizona for less than thirty years, so it has neither the national draw, nor does it have the deeply rooted history locally.

Things are changing. The team has had success, but it still pales in popularity overall. How often do you see a Cardinals jersey outside of Arizona? It's rare.

So what does that mean? It just mean that you are one of a kind.

Enjoy it.
