With 864 million U.S. dollars in revenue in 2017, the Dallas Cowboys are the highest-grossing franchise in the NFL. The Cowboys are the most valuable NFL franchise as well, as the franchise was valued at 5 billion U.S. dollars in 2018. The Dallas Cowboys not only have impressive financial figures, but the team is also quite successful on the field. The Cowboys have won five Super Bowls – 1971, 1977, 1992, 1993 and 1995 – and have several Pro Football Hall of Fame members, such as Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin.

The New England Patriots, led by the quarterback Tom Brady since 2000, is the second most profitable team in the NFL. About 593 million U.S. dollars in revenue were generated by the Pats in 2017, while its franchise value stood at 3.8 billion U.S. dollars. In total, the team has played in eight Super Bowls, winning five of them – 2001, 2003, 2004, 2014, and 2017. The Washington Redskins, the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants complete the top-5 of most profitable teams in the NFL, as each team’s revenue stood at more than 470 million U.S. dollars that year.

Sponsorships, media, partnerships, ticket and concession sales are some of the most important revenue streams for the NFL.
