Which NFL Team Has The Most Attractive Players?

Want to know the top 10 NFL teams rated by attractiveness? The Wall Street Journal requested Ursinus College in Pennsylvania put together a study to analyze the facial structure of a sampling of 320 NFL starters (five offensive and five defensive players from each team.) They also threw in two of the most-photographed personalities on any team, the owner and the head coach.

According to this sample, the most attractive position in the NFL is the kicker.

I can’t name one kicker…

The least attractive position was wide receiver.

I can name a few attractive wideouts :shrug:

One of the most interesting things about the study, the vast majority of NFL players rank 10% higher in facial symmetry than the average Joe. They also were found to be better looking than other athletes. They also measured the NBA’s All-Star team and found it was less attractive than this sample of NFL players.

But anyway, on to the results:

  1. Buffalo Bills – does it matter that their one of the worst teams in the league? I guess they’re cuties. They aren’t in contention to win my NFL heart though. 
  2. Cleveland Browns – Yet another team not in the running for the “Golden Stiletto”
  3. New Orleans Saints- finally someone that made my through the first round of eliminations to become my “NFL team”
  4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 
  5. Pittsburgh Steelers
  6. Atlanta Falcons
  7. Cincinnati Bengals 
  8. St Louis Rams- Ok, two teams from the Stiletto Jill challenge
  9. Indianapolis Colts
  10. Detroit Lions

The least attractive team in the league per this study, the Kansas City Chiefs.

To measure each subject’s attractiveness, the researchers analyzed their photograph with a computer program that measures facial symmetry, or how closely the two halves of a person’s face match up. Research suggests this is a reliable measure of how attractive a person is perceived to be. it also suggests that looks are a fair predictor of a person’s career success. A 1994 study found that more-attractive “symmetrical” people are paid about 5% more than the average person while more-homely “asymmetrical” people earn up to 10% less.
