Gridiron football, more commonly referred to as American football, has now become a national institution. This sport is, truthfully, likely as American as it can get. One of the largest sports organizations in the United States is the National Football League, also called the NFL. It has captured people’s attention and hearts across the nation ever since it was founded in the ’20s. There is a good chance you have a team that you are also supporting. People root for those based in or near their hometowns most of the time. Regular people like you and me, that being said, weren’t the only ones that keep a close eye on the league. Famous people are also not able to tear their eyes away from exciting matches! If you do not believe us, check out this list. Let us find out which teams are rooting for these famous people.
Eminem: Detroit Lions
Eminem, who was born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is a singer-songwriter, rapper, and record producer. You may like his music, but we wonder if his NFL team makes you feel the same way. He is a big Detroit Lions fan. You are probably already acquainted with the Michigan-based team. The rapper has been spotted attending a few of their games over the years.
Brad Pitt: Chiefs and Saints
Did you guys know that Brad Pitt’s real name is William Bradley Pitt? The actor has shown up in the past in many hit movies. You may not be informed that he is a huge fan of American football. He must be a fan of the New Orleans Saints and the Kansas City Chiefs, depending on the games he attends. There was even a time when he was promoting the latter on national TV! With the Chiefs, he has a good relationship. He took his son Maddox to a game with the New Orleans Saints in 2010.
Ty Burrell: Los Angeles Rams
Ty Burrell, best known for his role in Modern Family, also likes to watch football in his free time. All of his support comes from the Los Angeles Rams. In one of his interviews, he spoke about watching the NFL since he was a little boy. He has shown the team his support and loyalty by remaining a fan through all the changes it has undergone. In the ’90s, longtime fans will remember their transfer to St. Louis. We are glad that in 2016, they returned home to LA.
Chris Berman: Buffalo Bills
Boomer, Christopher James “Chris” Berman goes to show us that, with his love for the NFL, he is a true American. He is a supporter of the Buffalo Bills, a team based in the Niagara Falls metropolitan region. If you wish to see his fanatical side, check out this photo! You know what he likes to say to an American sportscaster. Quite like the Buffalo Bills, nobody circles the wagons!
Michael Phelps: Ravens
If this name is familiar, we bet you’re familiar with Michael Phelps as an Olympic swimmer. That being said, quite apart from swimming, he absolutely loves other sports. He is, in fact, a fan of the Baltimore Ravens! If you want to see the evidence, check out this photo. It shows him walking in his Ravens jersey around the field. How can you call yourself a true fan unless you have your team’s jersey?
Samuel L. Jackson: Atlanta Falcons
Samuel L. Jackson achieved household name standing throughout his career by playing the lead in Pulp Fiction, Captain Marvel, and Django Unchained. The talented actor received a number of awards and accolades, to nobody’s surprise. We are confident it would be an honor for any team to count him as a fan. Perhaps the Atlanta Falcons will feel grateful for his support!
Stephen Curry: Carolina Panthers
Maybe he’s a basketball star, but that really doesn’t mean he doesn’t like other sports to watch! The Carolina Panthers fan is Stephen Curry. Since they are based in his hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, it makes perfect sense. We bet that since he was a small child, he has been a fan of the team. For several years now, there is indeed a high possibility that he has been watching their games. It’s nice to see just how loyal supporters can be, even though they themselves are huge sports stars!
George Clooney: Cincinnati Bengals
Anybody who keeps saying they don’t know who George Clooney is is difficult to believe. For his ER, Batman & Robin, Ocean’s Eleven, and Ocean’s Twelve, he is best known. In the past, The Hollywood Hunk was an actor, director, producer, and activist. We can also add to that list the role of a fan of the Cincinnati Bengals. For a long time now, he has been a big fan of the team. If they ever think of rewarding fans for their loyalty, we are quite certain that he would be the first in line!
Paul Rudd: Kansas City Chiefs
Over the years, this talented actor has established a reputation for himself in Hollywood. You may not even know that he also keeps up with the NFL! The honor goes out to the Kansas City Chiefs when it comes to his team of choice. We’re not shocked to hear this. He was going to the University of Kansas, after all! It’s not hard to understand why he roots for the Chiefs, now that we know this information.
Lebron James: Dallas Cowboys
On the list, we’ve got another NBA star! Over the course of his career, LeBron James has made billions of fans across the world. When an enormous athlete is a big fan of fellow sportsmen, it is always interesting! The basketball player is a Dallas Cowboys supporter. For proof of his allegiance to the team, you can check his social media accounts. During their games, he takes to Twitter to express his emotions.
Barack Obama: Chicago Bears
Among the most famed men on the planet right now must be the 44th President of the United States. As the first African-American POTUS, Barack Obama made history. Did you know he is a fan of the Chicago Bears too? Long before he ran for office, he had supported them. There was a time in the Windy City when he was a community organizer. He used to live there once, which could explain his team of choice.
Condoleezza Rice: Cleveland Browns
Condoleezza Rice, another member of the government, became the 66th Secretary of the United States. She knows stuff about football as well, apart from her political science knowledge! The Cleveland Browns even wanted her to be their head trainer in 2018. As they were her favorite team in the league, she was delighted to hear this. We are sure she felt honored by the interest in her that they showed. Well, if it came true, it would definitely have been interesting to see the time in her head.
Lindsey Vonn: Denver Broncos
You probably know who Lindsey Vonn is if you keep up with your skiing. The young lady happens to be a big fan of the Denver Broncos. She began to support the team after her family relocated to Colorado. Sadly, her busy schedule of training does not allow her to watch the games as much as the other individuals on the list. Oh well, we’re sure that in the future she’ll get to do this!
Simone Biles: Houston Texans
Simone Biles is not only a talented gymnast, but she is one of the Houston Texans’ biggest fans as well. When they snapped her up as part of the cheering squad, the Olympic gold medalist must have been delighted. We are sure she was happy to be the team’s honorary cheerleader!
Lil Wayne: Green Bay Packers
Born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., Lil Wayne is a singer-songwriter, rapper, actor, and record producer named after himself. He is, without the need for doubt, a talented guy. Did you guys know he’s a big Green Bay Packers supporter, too? On his social media accounts, he not only talks about the team, but he goes to their games as well. He said his dad was the one who had made him a big fan in the past.
Las Vegas Raiders: Ice Cube
Are you aware of who O’Shea Jackson is? If a bell does not ring the name, it might be because instead, you know him as “Ice Cube.” He has worked in the past as an actor, rapper, and film-maker. He roots for the Las Vegas Raiders when it comes to the NFL. He also was showcased in the team documentary!
Stacy Keibler: Baltimore Ravens
This beautiful lady isn’t a regular fan. With that, what do we mean? When she was 18 years old, the WWE star used to be a cheerleader for the Baltimore Ravens. It is spectacular to hear that this feat was accomplished at such a young age by Stacy Keibler. A genuine fan, she shelled out $10,000 for tickets for the season!
Jenn Sterger: New York Jets
As a model and TV personality, you could perhaps know Jenn Sterger. You may also be aware that she has been a massive supporter of the New York Jets for a long time now. Being the reporter and host of Gameday must be nice because she gets paid to keep up with the team!
Mario Lopez: LA Chargers
Let us find out for which team roots Mario Lopez. In showing his support for the Los Angeles Chargers, the actor-journalist was not shy. The reality is that he has always been faithful to the team and supportive of it. He’s stuck through thick and thin with them! Whether they were based in San Diego or Los Angeles did not matter to him.
Johnny Depp: Miami Dolphins
This actor, who was born John Christopher Depp II, uses the Hollywood stage name, Johnny Depp. He has served as an actor, producer, and musician over the years. The celebrity keeps an eye on the Miami Dolphins’ NFL and roots. Since he actually grew up in the Sunshine State, that makes a lot of sense. He must have supported the Dolphins as a child. Since then, it has been a long time, but he has not stopped cheering them on. He likes to be present at their matches when he has free time on his hands!
Mark Wahlberg: New England Patriots
Mark Wahlberg has played the lead in Daddy’s Home, Shooter, Confidential Spenser, and Ted in the past. Just mind you. Those make up only a handful of all the projects on his resume. When he is not busy with work in front of and behind the camera, what does he do? We know, for one thing, that he likes watching the New England Patriots! Not only is he a big fan, but he’s actually pretty close to many NFL team members.
Adam Sandler: New York Jets
Say what you want about Adam Sandler, but we can’t really deny that the world of comedy has changed because of him. He was born and brought up in New York, so you might guess which NFL team he’s supporting. Ever since he was a child, he has been a New York Jets fan. The reason he is always present at their games is his love for the team. On top of that, he has featured them in the past in several of his films!
Bradley Cooper: Philadelphia Eagles
Is it astonishing seeing how Bradley Cooper has won many awards over the years? He likes to kick back, relax, and watch NFL games in his free time. Roots for the Eagles of Philadelphia. There was even a time when his passion had to be brought to the big screen! You might remember that his Silver Linings Playbook character was a fan of the NFL team as well. He’s a good actor already, but we’re sure this has made it easier. He wasn’t simply pretending to love them after all, and it was the truth!
Chris Pratt: Seattle Seahawks
Which film do you connect Chris Pratt with? We’re betting it’s one of the following: Galaxy Guardians, Passengers, and Jurassic World. He likes watching NFL games as well. None other than the Seattle Seahawks are his team. Spotting him at their games is not uncommon. He also once had to raise the flag for their celebration! We’re sure it was a lovely moment for him.
Hulk Hogan: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Terry Gene Bollea, commonly known as Hulk Hogan, created a legacy as a pro wrestler. Aside from that, he is also a football fan. He doesn’t only support a single team, unlike the other individuals on this list. It seems he likes a few of them! His favorite, however, is likely the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The great news is they seem to really like him back in the right place. He dropped out of their training session once, and the football players were equally pleased to meet him.
Drew Carey: Cleveland Browns
Once upon a time, one of the biggest football fans among celebrities was Drew Carey. However, with the same intensity, the comedian has since decided to stop supporting the Cleveland Browns. He said that their losing spirit might get in his own psyche’s way, so he stopped directly supporting them.
David Letterman: Indianapolis Colts
The fact that David Letterman is a big admirer of the Indianapolis Colts is not a surprise. In specific, he backed Peyton Manning, the former QB, in several ways. In his last broadcast, the two of them spoke about that once. In spite of everything, it is completely obvious that this is not a one-way street for them!
George W. Bush: Houston Texans
The reality is that George W. Bush and his dad root the Houston Texans. In exchange, both of them have been praised by the team in the past. The whole Bush household is close to the team. Nor are they shy about showing their support. Having the support of several American presidents must be cool.
Josh Duhamel: Minnesota Vikings
In Minnesota, when you grow up, you likely support the Vikings. This has been the scenario for Josh Duhamel as well. He has shown that the NFL team is loyal to him! Other supporters even think he ought to be the spokesman for them. He has been asked in the past to speak about their performance and recruiting.
Guy Fieri: Oakland Raiders
We all know that one busy guy is Guy Fieri. When he is not criticizing the best drive-ins, diners, and dives, what does he get up to? He likes supporting the Oakland Raiders, among much other stuff. Even when he was little, he has been their supporter. We are certain that until his dying day, he will keep going to root for them!
Mila Kunis: Chicago Bears
Supporting the same team as your husband must be nice! Both Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher support the Chicago Bears. That their team is such a successful franchise is a good thing. The power couple were previously spotted wearing Bears t-shirts and participating in all the games they could play.
Katy Perry: New York Giants
Katy Perry let the whole world know in 2012 that she was a New York Giants fan. We don’t really understand why the truth has taken so long to come out! And although she took her time disclosing it, by devoting the entire outfit to the NFL team, she made up for it. This is certainly a look that is eye-catching.
Jessica Biel: New England Patriots
Not just through anything, she supports her husband, but Jessica Biel also continues to support the New England Patriots. The reality is that, since they are one of the best sports franchises of our time, it is not difficult to support them. The New England Patriots have scooped up six Super Bowl wins since 2000.
Billy Murray: Chicago Bears
He’s proven to show us that he supports the Chicago Bears with his whole heart over the years. He goes to their matches as frequently as he can! If it meant expressing his support for the franchise, the actor was even willing to face the cold.
Elizabeth Banks: New England Patriots
This great actress has formally claimed her commitment to the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles. Who’s going to blame her? She, after all, went to school in Philly. However, when she spoke to ThePostGame.com, she admitted that she would always be a “Massachusetts girl and a fan of Pats.”
Marissa Miller: San Francisco 49ers
Her past with the San Francisco 49ers is what tends to make this Sports Illustrated model so remarkable. She wasn’t just an NFL team fan. You see, in the 2010 International Series Game, Marissa Miller also played an important role as the host. It was a play between the Denver Broncos and the 49ers.
Demi Lovato: New York Jets
Since Demi Lovato was clearly born in New Mexico, it’s quite an interesting option. She doesn’t have a strong connection with the New York Jets, but it doesn’t matter, we assume. After all, since they haven’t been getting too hot recently, the Jets need as much support as possible. The musician is a big fan, and Darrelle Revis was even spotted taking photos!
LL Cool J: New York Giants
The actual name of the man we know as LL Cool J is James Todd Smith. He is a famous celebrity, author, rapper, as well as record producer. He also is, other than that, a massive supporter of the New York Giants. Once you take into account the fact that he was born and raised in New York City, it makes more sense. We’re sure it was for this reason that he was such a committed fan of the team.
Tennessee Titans: Faith Hill & Tim McGraw
Allow us to speak first about Faith Hill! The popular singer is a big Tennessee Titans fan. For a long time, she was a team fan and had a jersey signed by running back Chris Johnson! And what about Tim McGraw, her husband? Luckily, country musicians are on the same side. He’s almost as big a Titans fan as she is! In fact, he once had to assist coach Mike Vrabel in the NFL Draft. We are sure he felt very humbled to do something like that.
Blake Shelton: Arizona Cardinals
Blake Shelton is a massive supporter of the Arizona Cardinals, although he originates from Oklahoma. His home town does not really have a franchise of its own, to be honest. Anyway, he said that since the ’90s, he had been a fan of the team! If you see him donning his team gear, you should never be shocked. He recorded a video for their website in 2015, sharing that he is a buddy of Larry Fitzgerald. He and Gwen Stefani were caught on the sideline of a game during that season.
Rob Lowe: Indianapolis Colts
Who would have predicted that throughout his time on Parks and Recreation, Rob Lowe not only repped Indiana? The Virginia native is a massive supporter of the Indianapolis Colts in actual situations. In the past, he was seen wearing their gear a lot of times. Fox Sports said in 2007, during his Super Bowl bid, the actor was also caught at every team game. He also took to Twitter in 2012 to break the news of Peyton Manning’s retirement!
Derek Trucks: Jacksonville Jaguars
Not a lot of famous people are Jacksonville Jaguars fans, as you’ve observed. We are happy to have Derek Trucks on the list to mix it up a bit. The guitar player is known for playing with such musical acts as The Derek Trucks Band and the Tedeschi Trucks Band. He’s a massive supporter of the Jaguars, mainly because his home town is where the team is based. A video for the website was recorded by a musician once. He said he’d been a fan ever since 1995! He said Shahid Khan, the owner, was “the best owner in the league.”
Chris Jericho: Minnesota Vikings
Were you aware that this professional wrestler is a podcaster now? In Canada, Chris Jericho did grow up, which also implies he supports a team that has nothing to do with his small home town. This didn’t seem to stop the Minnesota Vikings from cheering on him! He is not ashamed to speak, truthfully, about the team. He tore apart their deal for Kirk Cousins in an interview in 2019. He said that he was “not happy” with that. At any level, he was seen in a game recently with the Vikings. We are certain that after what he said in the past, he prefers to avoid the QB.
Jeff Goldblum: Pittsburgh Steelers
We all know that one of the most successful teams in the history of the NFL is the Pittsburgh Steelers. It is not shocking to discover that they have supporters that are very notable. One of them happens to be Jeff Goldblum! Born and raised in the area, the actor said that his family paid for Steelers season tickets when he was a young boy. He always went with his father to the team’s home games! In 2016, he met Le’Veon Bell, the team’s former running back. We can see how much this moved him based on the photo.
Jeremy Renner: San Francisco 49ers
Actor Jeremy Renner had the chance to combine work with his admiration of football as well. In 2015, he gave his voice to a documentary about the San Francisco 49ers for the NFL Network. We dare say he seemed to have a blast since it’s his favorite league team! A native of California, he’s been cheering them up all his life. In the past, he was even seen breaking down at their games. He was caught at the Super Bowl back in 2020. This, that being said, implied that he had to watch his team’s loss.
Kevin Durant: Washington Redskins
Washington, D.C. Native people, have never been so subtle as to how much the Washington Redskins love them. In the old days, Kevin Durant did attend a lot of their games. The NBA star was even spotted wearing his team colors from top to bottom in 2015. He also managed to show off his specially made Redskins version of the Nike KD8s at another game that year. We’re sure everybody else was extremely envious of him! Three years later, he probably had to make fun of Steph Curry when the Panthers were beaten by the Redskins.
Macklemore: Seattle Seahawks
Born Benjamin Haggerty, Macklemore is a Seattle Seahawks fan. As a matter of fact, since he grew up there, the rapper happens to support numerous teams based in the city. Anyway, no matter what else happens, he never has decided to give up on the Seahawks. Are you familiar with his song, ‘My Oh My’? By the name of Dave Niehaus, he pays tribute to a retired Seattle Mariner color commentator. It is obvious, if you ask us, that he absolutely adores his hometown! Something is commendable about all of that.
Alyssa Milano: New York Giants
Many people recall Alyssa Milano from her Days of Charm. Did you guys know, that being said, that she is a fan of the sport as well? Naturally, the Brooklyn native supports the New York Giants. She even decided to launch her own clothing line called “Touch.” It offers NFL and NASCAR related items. Aside from that, in past interviews, she has also gushed about the team. In our viewpoint, this is a strong indication that through thick and thin, she will be there for the team.
Tara Reid: Philadelphia Eagles
We’re betting that you will remember Tara Reid for her character in American Pie. In the Sharknado series, did you see her? Anyway, as a Philadelphia Eagles fan, she made it to the list. This is very intriguing because, in New Jersey, the actress did grow up. We can’t help wondering what’s behind the reason for this. We have no idea why she chose the franchise, but it’s completely obvious she’s rooting for them.
