Eagles fans rank 3rd drunkest in NFL
Eagles fans: They’re the worst, most grammar conscious NFL fans in America. Now, Eagles fans can add another accolade to their title: the drunkest.
More accurately, fans of the Philadelphia Eagles are the third drunkest fans in the NFL, trailing behind the Buffalo Bills and the Detroit Lions. VinePair reached out to BACtrack, a company that creates personal breathalyzers, to compile information about NFL fans' blood alcohol content (BAC) for Sunday games from the 2015 pre-season until Sunday, Oct. 26. They collected fan data from BACtrack's smartphone breathalyzer BACtrack Mobile and BACtrack Vio to obtain BAC info.
With an average BAC of 0.069 percent, Eagles fans landed in the middle of the top five drunkest NFL fans. Bills fans had an average BAC of 0.076 percent and Lions fans also had a BAC of 0.069 percent. Rounding out the top five were fans of the Arizona Cardinals and the San Diego Chargers.
Though BACtrack said team records do not correlate with fans' relative drunkenness, the combined win-loss record of the drunkest teams is 13-21 while that of the most sober teams—Cincinnati, Tennessee, New Orleans, the New York Giants and Houston—is 16-17.
Fans are usually more sober during the preseason, BACtrack found, with Eagles fans BAC increasing 49 percent from the preseason to regular season.
