Believe it or not, a scientific study has revealed which NFL team have the best fans and which ones stink. The study, conducted at Emory University, was based on how much fans spend on team merchandise and tickets, how many of them go to away games, and each teams' social media following. According to Professor Michael Lewis' study, the top three teams with the best fans, respectively, are Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, and Philadelphia Eagles. The bottom three being Tennessee Titans, Los Angeles Rams (duh), and Kansas City Chiefs.

So where did NFC North teams fall on this list?
