NFL Fandom Post-Mortem

Football fans that we are, after an incredibly lopsided Super Bowl, we need a little bit of NFL fun before we let football go into hibernation for another six months.  So let’s take a look at how football fans broke down across the country during the NFL Playoffs this year.  Facebook compiled this data last year, and we shared it then, you might recall.  It was an amazing set of maps, shading each county by what team had the most fans of that team on Facebook in that county, and then doing the same for each round of the Playoffs.  They did it a little differently this time, shading the counties by percentage of fans for a specific team in a specific game in the Playoffs.  Just like last time, there’s some weird stuff in there, like random pockets of Seahawks fans in South Jersey, so let’s dive right in and have some fun!
