No, all the cities are there, NY has two teams.

KC and Green Bay should be higher, Baltimore really doesn't seem like it should be #1 but I have no first hand knowledge of that.

Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Boston should be much higher.

I agree 100%. Im surprised to see them there because on every other list their number 1. Terrible list.

Buffalo and KC, from what I heard, are the best.

When I've gone to Baltimore, I felt that it was just too crowded and poorly designed. They have one lot big lot, and most people just park in garages and walk to the game. Plus, the freeway goes right over you.

The Harbor has good food though, and nice atmosphere.

I'm assuming the Florida-Georgia game is why Jacksonville is rated at 14. I don't tailgate, and I've never been to a Jaguars tailgate, but I have a feeling it's nothing special compared to the rest of the league.

Detroit tailgating was really decent at the Silverdome. Now it's nonexistent because no one on the team gives a crap about it.

I'm not a Steelers fan at all, but the tailgating for their games is pretty damn good. They should be in the top 5.

The new Giants Stadium....just wait

Boston

I'm surprised Green Bay is so low. Granted I've never been to any other NFL stadium, but Lambeau is a great spot to tailgate.

Yeah I don't know about this list. Buffalo is a great place to tailgate. Ive done it for many years. As for Friendly in the tailgating in buffalo is iffy haha. Ive seen Bills Fans yelling at Jets Fans. I was even yelled at last year when the Vikings Game..Buts it all fun. Buffalo is a great tailgating place.

I'm actually suprised we are 30th.......there are two teams lower than us, that is shocking. Granted Detroit sucks and Seattle is Seattle, so yeah. And I think these rankings have an east coast bias. Green Bay 11th, no ******* way they are that low.

One of the best parts of Pats games is the tailgating, we are known for it. BC tailgating is great as well. Red Sox and even Bruins pre-games are unreal.

Browns games are nice to tailgate at.

Bears games aren't as bad as that list says...at least not at the old Soldier Field.

Vikings games are pretty lousy...there's really not that much room around the Metrodome.

I love Baltimore tailgating so much energy, plus you could walk to the inner harbor.

Houston #3 alright, I'd like to thank all the people like myself who tailgate every home game.

A question for you. Were you an NFL fan before the Texans arrived? Or did you just watch all of the games and not cheer for a specific team?

As someone who loves to tailgate, more so than even going to the game sometime, I'll throw in my two cents on the stadiums I have been to.

I'm dissapointed with the New York ranking. Giants Stadium tailgates for both Jets and Giants are extremely good. Giants Stadium and the way the parking lots are set up make tailgating very easy.

Atlatnta being #28 I agree with. Went there last season and was extremely dissapointed with what they had to offer.

Philly is not better than New York. The lots are all over the place and aren't convenient for tailgating. They even have no tailgating lots which automatically drops them in my opinion.

San Diego's lots are very similar to Giants Stadium. Very open and convenient for tailgating. Although I just don't think the Cali fans tailgate as hard. It was better than Philly though.

Also my friends have been to Buffalo and raved about it. Said it was better than New York's tailgating as thats all they had to compare it to.

I'm flying out to Chicago in early December for the Giants game out there. I'm expecting big things from those fans. I hope they don't let me down.

Not speaking for him, but I was an Oilers fan, and a Titans fan when they moved. Then Houston got the Texans.

Boston def needs to be higher on that list, i enjoyed tailgating more than watching the pats jets playoff game this year....ok maybe a slight exaggeration.

i wonder if the person who made this list sampled the tailgating at lambeau during a milwaukee ticket holders game. those are always more low key. but really, tailgating at lambeau is great...doesn't even hold a candle to miller park tailgating though.
