Bad news for the New York Jets, they have no fans

The good people at Facebook have sought to categorize just who everyone in America supports in the NFL and where these fan bases are.

Naturally, the largest fan bases belong to teams like the Denver Broncos, Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers and the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks.

So how have Facebook shown just where every teams fans are? Well they've made a handy little map.

The map of the USA covers all 50 states and divides the country up into counties as they try to highlight the most supported teams.

It works in a fairly simple way, in each county, the official Facebook team page with the most likes from residents of that county won basically.

There are very few surprises, the Patriots do indeed rule New England while the Green Bay Packers continue to dominate Wisconsin.

Everybody feel for the New York Jets

The team that everyone has to feel a little sorry for or even happy to see so miserable depending on your own allegiances is the New York Jets.

When it comes to the teams in the picture, there is only one team who fails to win over one county, and that is the green and white of the Jets.

They are heavily overshadowed by their fierce rivals the New York Giants with the area surrounding New York dominated by dark blue.

Who knows how the Jets can win over some fans, maybe by winning a Super Bowl? Or maybe even just an AFC East divisional title.

Needless to say, the Jets will be a little jealous of those teams who not only dominate their own cities and states, but those loved in other parts of the country.

A tour of the US

Alaska and Hawaii represent two such areas with the native Alaskans celebrating along with Seattle and the tropical paradise of Hawaii siding with the 49ers.

The Dallas Cowboys prove that they're still America's team with the largest fan base and wins in 21 states nationwide.

Los Angeles, a major city without an NFL franchise is still well and truly Raider territory as Oakland's proposed move to the City of Angels does seem to make more sense now.

While several teams battle for supremacy in areas like Iowa, Kentucky and Florida, the ap provides some good insight into where you should go if you're a non US based fan to find your fellow fans.
