$11 billion in revenue. That is what the National Football League is reportedly raking in on a yearly basis these days, and it is a safe bet that value is only going to increase in the foreseeable future. The popularity of the NFL has never before been higher, and the league routinely posts record television ratings each and every season. There is no reason to believe that trend is coming to an end anytime soon, as the NFL has done well to make football Sundays special events in homes and at bars and restaurants. Sunday Night Football on NBC will once again be the top-rated show in the US for 2015.

All of that means that there has never been a better time to be an owner of an NFL franchise. Every club in the league, according to information presented by Forbes in September of 2015, currently has a value of over $1 billion, and all indications are that franchises will be worth even more by the end of the decade. Factors such as location, popularity of the team, and how well or how poorly that team has performed on the field in recent years all affect how much that club is worth to its current owner and also to a potential investor who is interested in financially getting involved in the NFL.

The Dallas Cowboys. The San Francisco 49ers. The New York Giants. The Washington Redskins. The New England Patriots. These teams make up the top-five most valuable franchises in the NFL for 2015. Anybody who has followed the business of the NFL in recent years could probably guess what team is on the mountaintop of the list. The entity referred to as “America's Team” continues to offer a reminder that winning may be the only thing in the standings and on the field, but it only matters so much as it pertains to business and also revenue that is generated by a club.

The Dallas Cowboys dominate the financial aspect of the NFL according to Forbes. This is the ninth straight year, Forbes claims, that the Cowboys are the most valuable team in the NFL. The $620 million in revenue that the Cowboys brought in over the past year was a record for the league. Being atop these lists probably puts a smile on the face of team owner Jerry Jones, but not as much as would the Cowboys ending a Super Bowl drought that has lasted two decades. When it comes to money, though, the state of the NFL can be broken down with a simple question: “How 'bout dem Cowboys?”
