6. San Francisco 49ers
> 2016 pct. stadium filled: 102.4% capacity

San Francisco is one of just a handful of teams to fill seats despite a dismal record of late. The team went 5-11 and 2-14 in 2015 and 2016, respective, and yet it ranks sixth on this list.

5. Philadelphia Eagles

> 5-year record: 38W/42L/0T
> Home stadium: Lincoln Financial Field – Philadelphia, PA
> 2017 avg. ticket price: $248

Though the Eagles finished their last two seasons with disappointing 7-9 records, the team does not struggle for want of fans. The Philadelphia metro area is one of the largest of any franchise in the league.
