Cowboys have highest value in National Football League, according to Forbes

Cowboys dominate Forbes' 2017 list of most valuable NFL franchises, Bills rank last

The Bills are (again) the least valuable franchise in the NFL, says Forbes

The Dallas Cowboys topped the list - for the 11th straight year - at $4.8 billion.

According to Forbes, the franchise is worth $1.6 billion, which is still an increase over the $1.4 billion the Pegulas paid in 2014.

Rounding out the NFL's top five are the New York Giants (US$3.3 billion), Washington Redskins (US$3.1 billion) and San Francisco 49ers (US$3.05 billion). Over the past year, the team's value has gone from $2.13 billion to $2.475 billion, which is a 16.2 percent increase.

Out of 32 National Football League teams, these three are the only ones to not make the top 50 overall sports rankings. The league owes this success to new stadium investments, stadium renovations and exuberating rights fees. Behind these teams we have European soccer giants - Manchester United, $3.69 billion; FC Barcelona, $3.64 billion; Real Madrid, $3.58 billion. Only one team, the New York Jets, had a value ($2.75 billion) that stayed the same as a year ago. With Mercedes-Benz Stadium opening this season, the Atlanta Falcons had the biggest year-to-year jump from 2016 to 2017.

The Vikings' $1.1 billion U.S. Bank Stadium, where this year's Super Bowl will be played, helped the team's venue revenue to more than $60 million.

At nearly $5bn, Jerry Jones' team is the most valuable franchise in any sport worldwide.
