Who’s the most popular NFL player in each state? This map will given you a good idea.

Dick’s Sporting Goods keeps track of NFL jersey sales each week, and actually allows you to helpfully filter in a number of ways on their website.

As it stands, Tom Brady has this season’s most popular jersey, Carson Wentz leads among rookies, and the Patriots lead all teams.

Here is the most popular by state:
