NFL Popularity Rankings: Seahawks Rank As 18th Most Popular Team In The NFL

ESPN sports polls has released a survey of NFL team popularity, measuring what percentage of people name a particular team as their favorite. The Seattle Seahawks sit just in the bottom half of the league, in 18th place with 1.6% of those surveyed naming the team as their favorite.

See where Seattle ranks against their NFC West rivals after the jump.

That result puts the Seahawks below the top ranked NFC West team, the San Francisco 49ers (No. 8, 4.0% of fans). Still, they're well above the Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams. Arizona sits in 29th place with .8% of those surveyed, and the Rams were in 31st, named by .7% of fans.

The telephone survey involves a nationally representative sample of 1,500 telephone interviews per month, and since 1994 has contacted 390,000 fans. The full rankings are available here:
