The National Football League and tailgating: They go together like peanut butter and jelly, pumpkin pie and Thanksgiving, and the Cleveland Browns and losing. One company went out of the way in 2015 to prove that paying NFL fans enjoy alcoholic beverages. BACtrack performed a study during the first six weeks of the 2015 NFL regular season to see just how much certain fan bases drink while in and around stadiums. It may not surprise you to learn that the six fan bases that were deemed to be the drunkest, per this study, associate themselves with teams that have never before won a Super Bowl.
None of the teams that are responsible for what BACtrack determined to be the top-ten drunkest NFL fans of 2015 have won a Super Bowl in recent memory. The Indianapolis Colts is the only franchise that has been to the mountaintop in the past decade. That was back when Peyton Manning was playing under center for the Colts. At the top of the list of the drunkest NFL fans of 2015 are those who cheer on a team that became known for losing Super Bowl contests in the 1990s. Those fans may already be growing tired of its head coach who talks more than he wins.
10 San Francisco 49ers: .056 Average BAC
9 Washington Redskins: .058 Average BAC
8 Indianapolis Colts: .059 Average BAC
7 Miami Dolphins: .061 Average BAC
6 San Diego Chargers: .062 Average BAC
5 Arizona Cardinals: .062 Average BAC
4 Cleveland Browns: .064 Average BAC
3 Philadelphia Eagles: .069 Average BAC
2 Detroit Lions: .069 Average BAC
1 Buffalo Bills: .076 Average BAC
Who in western New York state could have imagined at the time that the “Boy I Love Losing Super Bowls” era of the Buffalo Bills would be the best that fan base would see? Every professional sports franchises goes through losing periods. It happens. Fans of the Bills have to be wondering when it will be their time to celebrate a title. Head coach Rex Ryan, who is never shy about speaking his mind to the press, will quickly wear out his welcome if he is not able to guide the Bills to the playoffs. It is not all bad news for Buffalo fans, though, as they now know that the Bills will be staying put where the franchise belongs for the foreseeable future. Cheers to you, Buffalo fans. You've earned another drink.
