Street Talk Survey Says Ravens Fans are NFL’s Most Superstitious

According to a survey by Bud Light, Baltimore Ravens fans are the most superstitious in the NFL.

The results of the survey put Ravens fans just ahead of Arizona Cardinals fans, so either superstitions are absolutely nonsense, or Ravens fans just have much better superstitions than those folks in the desert.

Rounding out the top 5 were fans of New Orleans, Oakland, and Philadelphia.

Again – it seems that Ravens fans’ superstitions are pretty much the only ones that are working lately.

Read more about the survey on Yahoo! Finance:

This survey, which gathered opinions from nearly 10,000 adult NFL fans over the summer, took an in-depth look at the fan bases of each of the 32 NFL teams and how their superstitions and rituals impact their enjoyment of the game. According to the survey, the top-5 most superstitious fan bases in the NFL are:

  1. Baltimore Ravens fans
  2. Arizona Cardinals fans
  3. New Orleans Saints fans
  4. Oakland Raiders fans
  5. Philadelphia Eagles fans

I have to admit that I’m absolutely guilty of participating in game-day superstitions. Here’s a short list of my oddities:

  • Always wear the same color jersey the team is wearing
  • Ravens underwear are imperative
  • Rub Joe Flacco bobblehead before every game (before every drive if we need a comeback)
  • Keep homemade challenge and penalty flags in my pocket

What are some of yours? Since we’re the newly-crowned “Most Superstitious Fanbase” we want to hear them!
