The NFL Ultimate Fan Bracket

August 25, 2020

NFL teams won't take the field for a few more weeks, but it's already time for NFL fans to get geared up.

NFL Ultimate Fan Bracket voting is live!

FOX Sports is kicking off the second edition of the Ultimate Fan Bracket.

Here's how it works:

Last season, the Cleveland Browns emerged victorious over the Tennessee Titans in the championship, and this year, the other 29 NFL fanbases will look to knock off the Dawg Pound.

Fan voting is live and several FOX Sports hosts, analysts and former NFL players are already attempting to rally their favorite fanbases, including Dallas Cowboys legend Troy Aikman.

Troy Aikman: Cowboys have the best fans in the NFL, it’s ‘no debate’

Hall of Fame quarterback and FOX NFL broadcaster Troy Aikman said it’s obvious the Dallas Cowboys have the best fans in the NFL. From how well they travel to the amount of merchandise they sell, Aikman said no fan bases really come close to his Cowboys.

Aikman spent his entire 12-year career with Cowboys, leading the franchise to three Super Bowl titles. 

Cowboys fans will need to redeem themselves this year, after falling in the first round to the Titans in the first NFL Ultimate Fan Bracket. 

However, if anyone is able to rally Cowboys fans, it should be Aikman.

Erin Andrews details the special relationship Troy Aikman shares with Cowboys fans

FOX Sports’ Erin Andrews works with Troy Aikman every week of the NFL season and has seen his interactions with Cowboys fans while on the road. EA shares her thoughts on the special bond she’s gotten to see firsthand.

Speaking of the Cowboys, their ultimate rival, the Philadelphia Eagles, have the support of another legendary quarterback in Mr. Michael Vick, who spent five years in the City of Brotherly Love. 

Michael Vick: Eagles fans ‘demand so much of you’ and that’s what makes them great

Former Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets, and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Michael Vick explains why the Eagles have the best fan base in football. The fact they hold their team to such a high standard is what elevates them, according to Vick.

While the Cowboys and Eagles annually battle it out in the NFC East, one of the powerhouse franchises in the NFC is the New Orleans Saints, led by Drew Brees and winners of three straight NFC South crowns.

And one of Brees' former teammates is imploring Who Dat Nation to push the Saints to a fan bracket crown as well. 

Reggie Bush: ‘Who Dat Nation is not to be messed with’, Saints fans are best in the NFL

Former NFL running back Reggie Bush makes the case for New Orleans Saints fans as the best in the NFL. New Orleans is where Bush started his NFL career and he said the energy their fans bring to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome every Sunday is what sets them apart.

The Saints (13-3) put together one of the three best records in the NFC last season, along with the eventual NFC champion San Francisco 49ers (13-3) and the Green Bay Packers (13-3). 

Former Packers Pro Bowl wide receiver Greg Jennings is hoping Packers fans will Lambeau Leap their way onto the internet and vote for Green Bay.

Greg Jennings: ‘There is no fan base like the Green Bay Packers’

Although he played for both ends of the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings rivalry, former NFL receiver Greg Jennings said there’s no question the Packers have the best fans in football.

A few other members of the FOX Sports family laid out their best pitches as to why fans should vote for their favorite franchises:
