Facebook has put out a new map that shows each county's (or parish's for Saints fans) preferred NFL team as judged by Facebook likes.

The Broncos have a huge amount of orange on the map, although lots of it is in some of the country's less populous regions, while the Dallas Cowboys live up to the "America's Team" monkier with pockets of dark blue all over the map.

The map also shows the fierce nature of some rivalries, as seen by the clean dividing line of the Illinois-Wisconsin border for Bears and Packers fans.

Thirty-one of the league's 32 teams appear on the map with the New York Jets getting blanked out by strong support for their stadium mates, the New York Giants.
