I have pretty much whittled my possible teams down to three teams. Dolphins, Giants and Bears

Got gamepass for this years draft and will renew for the new season and try and watch as many games as I can to see who grabs me the most.

I was making the same decision as you 2 years ago and for similar reasons such as, the team isnt that succesful and hasnt won the superbowl, I went with the Jags, i beleive at some point they will have their breakout year, especialy under new management with Coughlin pulling the strings..

Hello.

I am very new to NFL, I started watching it at the end of last season's regular season (2016) and have been watching the BBC coverage so far this season.
I'm in the same boat as the OP. I don't have one team I follow. I have a handful of teams I like, a few teams I dislike and the rest I'm pretty indifferent to.

I am a Tottenham Hotspur fan, so was wondering which NFL team might be a close profile match to Spurs?
A team that has only won the top flight once and that was a long time ago. A team that traditionally play entertaining football, but are mostly style over substance.
The nearly men, who are currently one of the best run clubs in England and currently one of the best sides in England.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Go for the Jacksonville Jaguars, like Spurs, Wembley is currently their second home.

There you go. There’s as good a reason as any.

If not the Jags, then the Broncos, as we currently have Chas & Dave sharing quarterback duties.

Yeah I’m in the same boat as the OP.

I love watching American football but I find it strange just picking a random team and going yeah they’re my team.

Each season I watch a hard knocks series or an all or nothing I feel connected to that team but that connection ends when the next season starts.

I’d love to support a team that has a strong Irish connection but I fear that would be the Patriots.

I'm guessing cities like New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, etc. all have strong Irish connections. So that could narrow things down a little. Giants, Jets, Bills maybe. Eagles, Bears, Steelers maybe. There's 6 option to explore if you're looking to avoid the Pats.

Ah deadly. I do like the Jets and Eagles so both good options!
