Detroit Lions Valued At $817 Million

Forbes released its list of the most valuable sports teams in the world for 2011, and the Detroit Lions once again are ranked 36th. Last year they were ranked 36th and had a value of $867 million, but this year their value dropped down to $817 million.

Despite the drop in value, the Lions actually moved up a spot in the rankings for the NFL's most valuable teams. The Lions were 28th in the NFL a year ago, but this time around they are 27th. The five teams behind them are the Buffalo Bills, St. Louis Rams, Minnesota Vikings, Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Just like last year, the NFL dominated the top 50. All 32 teams were included in the top 50, and the top 10 includes the Dallas Cowboys (No. 2), Washington Redskins (No. 4), New England Patriots (No. 6), New York Giants (No. 8), Houston Texans (No. 9) and New York Jets (No. 10).

The Lions are the only Detroit team in the top 50.
