Each NFL team has their own stadium. Many die-hard fans have been to their team’s stadium many times. The most die-hard fans will travel to other stadiums to cheer for their team during away games. Architects ranked every NFL stadium from worst to first. No.1 is guaranteed to shock you.
Los Angeles Chargers’ Dignity Health Sports Park
The 2019 football season is the last that they will play in this stadium. Since moving to LA in 2017, the Chargers have been using a soccer stadium until the new SoFi Stadium in Inglewood is built. Until their new stadium is complete, the Chargers have been sharing the stadium with the LA Galaxy. Because it is a soccer stadium, it is the best.
Oakland Raiders’ RingCentral Coliseum
This is the second-smallest stadium in the NFL. It was built in the mid-60s and has a seating capacity of 56,057. It is old, so there is plenty of history, but the Raiders may be leaving. The franchise is scheduled to move to Las Vegas, which means that they will be getting a new stadium.
The LA Rams’ Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum
This stadium is fine, but it was built in the ’70s. The Rams won’t be there for long because when the new SoFi Stadium is built, they will be moving out of their current stadium and sharing SoFi Stadium with the Chargers.
Washington Redskins’ FedEx Field
The old RFK Stadium was within sight of the US Capitol Building, and people believe that it was better than the current FedEx field. The 82,000 seat stadium is about five miles from D.C., which is further for fans to drive. The amenities are okay, but there is really nothing special. Most people believe that the cost of the tickets is too much for the quality of the field.
Buffalo Bills’ New Era Field
This stadium is located in Orchard Park, and it has a college stadium field. Currently, there is talk of building a new stadium closer to downtown Buffalo, which will let the world know that the Bills are a professional NFL team.
Jacksonville Jaguars’ TIAA Bank Field
This stadium has been the home to the Jaguars since they entered the league in the mid-’90s. There is nothing special about the stadium, and they have gone through some renovations to make it nicer cosmetically. There are two pool areas in the north end zone, which is excellent on the hot days that are common at the beginning of the season.
Miami Dolphins’ Hard Rock Stadium
The stadium was recently renovated to make it more intimate, but they missed the mark. The stadium still feels sterile. There is plenty of room to tailgate, but the heat during the early part of the season can be too much. The team is struggling to fill the seats because it is just too hot on most days.
Tennessee Titans’ Nissan Stadium
The stadium’s location is the best thing about it. It is close to the fun places that Nashville has to offer. There is also plenty of room to tailgate. Once you are inside, you will see that it is just an average sports stadium that could use a makeover. Many college stadiums look better.
Carolina Panthers’ Bank of America Stadium
The Panthers have played all but one season in this stadium located in downtown Charlotte. The views from the seats are great, but there is nothing about the stadium that is unforgettable.
Cleveland Browns’ FirstEnergy Stadium
The Browns have been getting better, which means more fans want to fill the seats. The stadium is modern, but there is nothing too special about it. The best thing about the stadium is that it is within walking distance of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Cincinnati Bengals’ Paul Brown Stadium
This stadium looks a lot like Cleveland’s stadium, and the riverfront location is excellent. The upper levels can make it difficult for people who are afraid of heights to watch. The lack of playoff success hasn’t been filling the seats.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium
If you can deal with the hot Florida sun, this stadium isn’t too bad. The upper seats are a bit steep, so those who are afraid of heights struggle to sit there. The best part of the stadium is the full-blown pirate ship in the north end zone.
New York Giants’ and New York Jets’ MetLife Stadium
This new stadium cost $1.6 billion to build, and it is better than the old Giants’ stadium. There isn’t much about this stadium to complain about, but there isn’t much to be excited about either.
Chicago Bears’ Soldier Field
This stadium has a lot of history, and the lakefront location offers one of the best in the NFL. The traffic in the area can be brutal before and after the game. The sight-lines are decent when walking around the concourse, but putting a renovated structure inside the colonnades is not aesthetically pleasing.
Baltimore Ravens’ M&T Bank Stadium
This stadium is comfortable, and the sight-lines are solid. The stadium is close to plenty of entertainment areas, and the Baltimore Oriels Camden Yards is right next door.
New England Patriots’ Gillette Stadium
The New England Patriots are a dynasty, and the more they win, the bigger their stadium gets. Today, it is a full-fledged entertainment complex that people visit even during the off-season. It is conveniently located between Boston, MA, and Providence, RI in Foxboro, Mass. There is plenty of parking and a lot to do before and after the game. The stadium feels more intimate than it looks.
Philadelphia Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field
Anything would be better than the old Veterans Stadium, but the city did great with this one. There are plenty of amenities, and the stadium provides a better overall experience.
New Orleans Saints’ Mercedes-Benz Superdome
The stadium was one of the only structures still standing after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. It was one of the only places for evacuees to find refuge during the storm. After the storm, the Superdome was renovated and provides one of the best home-field advantages in the NFL.
San Francisco 49ers Levi’s Stadium
The Santa Clara stadium is almost an hour away from San Francisco, and game-day traffic can make it much worse. Getting in and out can be brutal, but it is an eco-friendly stadium. The roof has solar panels, which could be a trendsetter for other stadiums in the future.
Detroit Lions’ Ford Field
This is the most underrated field in the NFL. During the coldest games in November and December, fans will remain warm. Fans can see the game while walking every area of the concourses, and the beer selection is excellent.
Arizona Cardinals’ State Farm Stadium
This stadium is pretty great. The roof is retractable, and the playing surface is as well. On the outside, it looks like a spaceship. On the inside, it is one of the most comfortable.
Denver Broncos’ Empower Field at Mile High
The backdrops of the Rocky Mountains in the distance make tailgating incredible. The sight-lines are better than in most stadiums, and the quality level of food and drinks keeps the fans very happy.
Houston Texans’ NRG Stadium
This 72,000-seat stadium is enormous, but it doesn’t feel that way. It is located near the famed Astrodome, and it is a great place to watch the game. The mammoth retractable roof keeps fans comfortable regardless of the weather.
Kansas City Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium
It is the fans that make this stadium one of the best. Because of the fans, this is one of the loudest and toughest places for opponents to play. It is the fans’ passion that makes this stadium great.
Indianapolis Colts’ Lucas Oil Stadium
This is one of the most unique stadiums in the NFL. The upper seats are a bit high, but there is enough seating for all the fans. The food and drink options are endless, and since it is located in downtown Indianapolis, there are plenty of things to do before and after the game.
Pittsburgh Steelers’ Heinz Field
This stadium gets high marks for its location and the views of downtown Pittsburgh. The open-air in the end zone provides excellent views when fans turn their gaze from the field for a minute.
Atlanta Falcons’ Mercedes-Benz Stadium
This stadium as a state-of-the-art 360-degree video screen, and it has a unique retractable roof. The food and drinks are reasonably priced, which is rare at NFL stadiums.
Minnesota Vikings’ U.S. Bank Stadium
The Vikings went from having one of the worst stadiums to one of the best. It cost $1 billion to build the stadium and has everything that fans need to enjoy the game. Natural light floods the transparent roof and wall, which is incredible.
Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium
Jerry Jones spared no expense with this stadium. The 80,000 seat stadium has a gigantic video screen that stretches almost the entire field. It makes for an incredible experience.
Seattle Seahawks’ CenturyLink Field
This field provides the biggest and loudest home-field advantage. The field is shaped like a clam, and the stadium seats 68,000 fans.
Green Bay Packers’ Lambeau Field
The Packers have the best stadium in the NFL. The interior and exterior renovations were on point. It has become a year-long entertainment hub, bringing millions of visitors every year.
