32. Blake Shelton (Arizona Cardinals)
Just how big a fan is Shelton of the Cardinals? So big that the country music star has his own Cardinals-related man cave. He’s apparently close with members of the team’s coaching staff and claims he even rooted for the club during some of the lean seasons several years ago. Shelton has often been seen sporting Cardinals gear, even on stage.

31. Samuel L. Jackson (Atlanta Falcons)
According to USA Today, when the popular actor (Pulp Fiction, Marvel Cinematic Universe) was a student at Atlanta’s Morehouse College, he worked concessions at Falcons’ games. Apparently, he never gave up that loyalty to the Falcons. Jackson has never been shy about his love of the team over the years, attending many games and mentioning the “Dirty Birds” during interviews. So much so, he offered up a “Rise Up” commercial for the Falcons back in 2016.

30. Michael Phelps (Baltimore Ravens)
Not a big surprise that the 23-time Olympic gold-medal swimmer is a big Ravens fan. After all, he hails from Baltimore. The team has honored him at games before. It also displayed a cardboard cut-out head of Phelps in the stands during the early portion of the COVD-19 plagued 2020 season. There’s probably a good chance Phelps would have been a pretty fair football player if he chose.

29. Wolf Blitzer (Buffalo Bills)
Bills fans are a special group. And should be, considering all the misery their team has put its fanbase through. Blitzer has certainly been with the Bills through thick and thin. The longtime news man and CNN anchor attended college in the Buffalo area and proudly roots for them. Perhaps someday soon he will be rewarded fully for all his dedication to the Bills.

28. Brooklyn Decker (Carolina Panthers)
The model/actress has apparently been a long-time fan of the Panthers. By all accounts, she’s a pretty knowledgeable one, as well. She’s reportedly updated on player performances and the coaching staff. Decker should also like the fact that Panthers also happen to have one of the best in the game in running back Christian McCaffrey.

27. Bill Murray (Chicago Bears)
The funny man star of such classics as Caddyshack and Stripes is also a big Chicago Cubs fan. However, back in the day when the Bears won the Super Bowl (1985 season), Murray was often on the Chicago sideline at Soldier Field. The Chicago-area native, whose family owns a restaurant/bar in the suburbs of the Windy City, apparently preferred Walter Payton and William “The Refrigerator” Perry. His loyalty to the Bears runs as deep to any other’s allegiance to a team on this list.

26. George Clooney (Cincinnati Bengals)
Clooney is still one of the biggest stars on the planet. However, that apparently has not kept him from switching his NFL allegiance to a more prominent team. The Kentucky native and star of ER and The Descendants, supports the Bengals based on geography, it seems. Nothing wrong with that. And, it offers plenty of credibility to the fan base.

25. Condoleezza Rice (Cleveland Browns)
It’s uncertain if Rice has spent time hanging with the “Dawg Pound.” By reports, the former United States National Security Advisor and Secretary of State has been a Browns fans since her younger days. She watched games with her father, immersing herself into the tradition and history of the team. Back in 2016, Rice wore a Josh Cribbs Cleveland jersey during a campaign for NFL women’s apparel. Now, the Browns just need to win a Super Bowl – or maybe just reach the playoffs.

24. LeBron James (Dallas Cowboys)
Something tells us that James would have been a great NFL player. After all, he was a star prep football player back in Ohio. It makes sense that one of the planet’s biggest names supports what’s still one of the most popular teams in the NFL. “King” James has been seen on the sidelines at Cowboys games and is often pictured wearing a hat with that famous Dallas star.

23. Amy Adams (Denver Broncos)
Adams is a six-time Academy Award nominee, known for such films as Junebug and American Hustle. She also is a big fan of the Broncos. So much, that Adams was reportedly seen sporting her Broncos gear during Super Bowl 50 – when Denver beat the Carolina Panthers. During a spot for Vanity Fair, Adams also showed her graceful form when it comes to throwing a football in a fancy dress.

22. Eminem (Detroit Lions)
OK, we know Kid Rock is an outgoing big Lions booster. However, he’s about as relevant as a two-dollar bill. Now, most celebrity Detroit Lions’ fans are Michigan natives or spent extended time in the state. Eminem is one of the great rappers of all time and is a huge supporter of Detroit’s sports teams. Eminem often attends Lions games and released the tune “In Detroit” that offers some football flavor.

21. Justin Timberlake (Green Bay Packers)
JT claims that he became a Packers fan because of Brett Favre while growing up in Memphis. Back when Tennessee did not have a pro team of its own. It’s also been reported that Timberlake is personal friends with Green Bay star Aaron Rodgers. The famed singer, actor, entertainer has made his way to Lambeau Field on occasion and been vocal of his support of the team. Not sure if we’ve even seen him wear a foam cheesehead.

20. Simone Biles (Houston Texans)
It’s always fun to see athletes from other sports support pro football teams. Biles, who has won four Olympic gymnastics gold medals, apparently loves her Texans. She even served as an honorary cheerleader for a home game. With her agility and grace, one could imagine Biles as a pretty good kick returner. Just a thought.

19. David Letterman (Indianapolis Colts)
The former late-night great is a native of the Hoosier state. So, when the Colts relocated from Baltimore, Letterman was hooked. He’s also apparently a big fan of Colts legend Peyton Manning. Then again, who isn’t? It’s also been reported that Manning and Letterman have a decent friendship.

18. Lil Duval (Jacksonville Jaguars)
Now, there is word that Bill Murray, who we mentioned earlier as a Chicago Bears fan, also has shown love for the Jags. However, we chose to highlight this hip hop artist and stand-up comedian. Duval, the county in which Jacksonville is located, is a native of the city and quite vocal of his support for the Jaguars. He’s often seen at Jags’ games and sporting the team’s jerseys and hats.

17. Paul Rudd (Kansas City Chiefs)
There’s a good chance nobody celebrated harder than Rudd when the Chiefs won the Super Bowl last season. A longtime fan of the team, and the Kansas City Royals, Rudd might be beyond die-hard status. He’s often been seen wearing a Chiefs and doesn’t miss a chance to talk about the team. Rudd even served as narrator when the team was featured on the HBO series Hard Knocks.

16. Ice Cube (Las Vegas Raiders)
Like the Dallas Cowboys, there are plenty of big-name Raiders fans. Cube, though, might still be among the biggest backers even though the team has moved to Vegas. Back in his N.W.A. days, Ice Cube often sported his Raiders hat – when they were based in Los Angeles at the time. However, it seems no matter where the team is located, Ice Cube will follow. Fan support usually knows no bounds.

15. Phil Mickelson (Los Angeles Chargers)
Another athlete who is a prominent fan of an NFL squad. Mickelson, a five-time major champion, is a San Diego native and was all Chargers while they were in town for decades. Now that the franchise has moved to Los Angeles, Mickelson still appears to be backing the team. Even though longtime quarterback Philip Rivers is no longer with the team. Rivers and Mickelson have grown pretty tight over the years.

14. Bryan Cranston (Los Angeles Rams)
Cranston has blossomed into one of the most popular actors (Breaking Bad) on television in recent years. He was a longtime Rams fan when they were originally based in Los Angeles, but was turned off when the franchise moved to St. Louis. They are back in L.A. now, and Cranston reportedly is back on board in support of the team. Call it fair-weathered, but at least it’s support.

13. Johnny Depp (Miami Dolphins)
The famed actor of such films as Edward Scissorhands and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise moved around much during his younger days. His family eventually landed in Florida and Depp found his NFL team in the Dolphins. With the franchise’s history, not a bad team to follow. Depp likes to wear Dolphins gear and has been seen on the sidelines at Dolphins’ games. Not a bad celeb to have on your side.

12. Chris Jericho (Minnesota Vikings)
Unabashed and proud. Just two words to describe Jericho’s love of the Vikings. The legendary pro wrestler, who’s also dabbled in music and acting, is a huge pro sports fan in general. However, it seems the Vikings are at the top his list. Jericho makes appearances at Vikings games, eager to take pictures with fans and has no problem offering his opinions on the team and its personnel.

11. Elton John (New England Patriots)
We know about the Wahlbergs, and Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon – but, Elton John? Yes, the legendary musician is a massive Patriots fans. Sir Elton, who is a huge sports fan in general, frequently makes his love for New England football known. On one occasion, he served as the team’s honorary captain when it faced Tampa Bay in London several years back.

10. Brad Pitt (New Orleans Saints)
Does it really get much bigger than Pitt (Moneyball, Fight Club)? While one of his better known movies has Pitt playing a baseball executive, his love for football is apparently passionate – specifically the New Orleans Saints. He’s been seen at games, chatting up players and even wearing a Saints jersey on occasion. Wonder how Drew Brees feels about this?

9. Lady Gaga (New York Giants)
A New Yorker through and through. Gaga has a true love for NYC and its surrounding boroughs. Especially its sports teams. She’s been seen at Yankees games, which is usually a haven for celebs. But, she’s often made her away across the Hudson River to take in a Giants game. Usually from the comfort of a luxury suite.

8. Ralph Macchio (New York Jets)
Yes, the Karate Kid loves the J-E-T-S. Wonder if the team has ever considered employing him to kick field goals or extra points? A Long Island native, Macchio has often been on hand at Jets games. He’s even been used to get the crowd fired up prior to kickoff. Lately, it’s tough being a Jets fans, but Macchio doesn’t seem ready to hide his true green and white colors.

7. Kevin Hart (Philadelphia Eagles)
Anybody who watched when the Eagles won Super Bowl LII know how big a fan Hart is. The Philly native might also be an obnoxious one. During the on-field celebration and hoisting of the Lombardi Trophy, an inebriated Hart worked his way into the fun and looked quite strange during it. He was turned away by some security guards and the internet had a bit of fun at Hart’s expense. Let’s call it a moment of misplaced euphoria for this Eagles super fan.

6. Michael Keaton (Pittsburgh Steelers)
The man who played Batman is a Pennsylvania native. So, it’s no surprise he backs the Steelers. The veteran actor of other favorites such as Mr. Mom and Beetlejuice, has proudly spoke about his Steelers love over the years. He’s also somewhat of a regular at Steelers games. We’re sure he’s got a Terrible Towel or two hanging nicely in his residence.

5. Nancy Pelosi (San Francisco 49ers)
The prominent politician represents the good folks of San Francisco. The Speaker of the House, who has made plenty of news in 2019 and 2020, happens to be an avid 49ers fans. She’s reportedly a season-ticket holder for 49ers games. However, she apparently was unable to attend Super Bowl LIV because of work reasons – aka Donald Trump’s successful impeachment.

4. Will Ferrell (Seattle Seahawks)
Fans of the massively popular actor (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Old School) might not be aware of his passion for Seahawks football. That’s the case, as Ferrell claims to be big supporter of one of the NFL’s perennial powers. Reportedly, Ferrell is close with Seattle coach Pete Carroll. Their friendship is said to date back to Carroll’s days coaching at USC.

3. Dick Vitale (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
A Florida resident, Dickie V loves his Tampa area sports. Now, he tends to talk a lot about Rays baseball and has season tickets. However, he’s apparently just as passionate for the Bucs. He attends games, wears the gear and is pretty knowledgeable when it comes to talking about football. Wonder how he felt about Tom Brady coming to town?
Image Source: Twitter
2. Tim McGraw (Tennessee Titans)
The Titans are a popular fan choice for country music performers. Makes sense since the team is based in Nashville. They don’t get much bigger than McGraw, the multi-Grammy winning performer who will go down as one of the greats in country music – along with wife Faith Hill. McGraw is big sports fan, but football appears to be his preferred choice.

1. Matthew McConaughey (Washington Football Team)
McConaughey is from Texas. So, how exactly did he become a fan of Washington’s pro football team? The star of such hits as Dallas Buyers Club and Dazed and Confused, McConaughey tells an interesting tale on how he became a fan of the team. He said to NBC Sports in 2019, that as a young boy his favorite food was a hamburger. While watching Washington play, he saw a player on the team named Chris Hanburger. That was the moment a young McConaughey was hooked on Washington football.
