The power of social media allows us to see which NFL teams have the most fans throughout the United States. The data gets so specific that we are able to see which team each county in the country supports the most.

Last month, Facebook provided a map that showed NFL fandom by county. Now, another social media website has supplied data of its own.

Twitter recently released an interactive NFL fandom map that breaks down which teams have the most followers by county.

As you can see, the results from the Facebook and Twitter maps are fairly similar.

Both the Denver Broncos and the Dallas Cowboys can say they own a lot of counties. Those two teams do a great job of taking the states that don't have an NFL team. Overall, most counties support their local team.
