SWXRightNow.com --  Forbes recently came out with a top-10 list of NFL fan bases. And for the 12's in the Pacific Northwest it may be a little shocking where the Seattle Seahawks landed even after winning Super Bowl XLVIII in February.

Here is the criteria for how Forbes came to their conclusion:

Our ranking is based on five criteria: hometown crowd reach (defined by Nielsen Scarborough as a percentage of the metropolitan area population that watched, attended, and/or listened to a game in the last year), 3 years worth of television ratings (per Nielsen), 3 years of stadium attendance based on capacity reached, 3 years worth of merchandise sales (per NFLShop.com), and social media reach (a combination of Facebook likes and Twitter followers based on the team's metro area population).

Find out which teams made the top-10 in the slideshow above!
