Ranking the best dog logos in the NFL

Which team has the best furry friend?

The logo an NFL team has is extremely important. If the Lions logo did not remind 3-year-old Mansur of his favorite movie, The Lion King, I might not have ended up rooting for the Detroit Lions for my entire life.

It is the representation of a team, a city, an identity. The New York Mets logo features the skyline of the city that never sleeps, with the blue and orange coloring representing their forefathers of New York baseball. The Colorado Avalanche logo, which represents the snowy peaks of the Rockies, defines the Mile High city. The logo of the Golden State Warriors features the Golden Gate Bridge—one of the most visually-pleasing structures in the nation—connects two sides of the city over what we all lovingly refer to as “The Bay”.

And who can forget the Dallas Cowboys logo? The iconic star. The perfect visual for America’s team. You can just feel the history of the team, its many successes, and the superstars and Hall of Famers that have donned it over the years just by staring into its dark blue abyss. Even commentators cannot resist indulging in its eminence.

It is (under)dog week here at SB Nation. We are recognizing the best dogs in all of sports, and seeing how important logos are to a team and their respective cities, I decided to rank the best dog logos in the NFL to see which team has the best canine representing themselves.

Let’s get into the list:

1. Cleveland Browns

Yeah, so it turns out only one team in the NFL has a dog logo, and it isn’t even that good.
