I don't know about you, but when I sit down to watch a Chicago Bears game I have to be in the same spot on my couch each week. My family also makes sure they find their set places as well. They try very hard to keep the non-football talk to a minimum.
I for one want no interruptions during a Bears game. I'm sure those are pretty minimal superstitious acts compared to some superfans out there.
According to Bud Light's NFL Fans Superstition Survey, the Chicago Bears fans as a whole rank 27th out of the 32 NFL teams in terms of superstition levels.
For what its worth the five teams behind the Bears in this survey are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, St. Louis Rams, Jacksonville Jaguars, Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings.
More than 50 questions were asked and, out of that, an “NFL Fan Superstition Index” formed. The index calculated the superstition level of each NFL fan base by each fan’s game-day habits – everything from wearing dirty jerseys, chanting and kissing team trinkets to superstition consistency and true belief levels – and aggregates those into a score from 0 to 100.
In addition to ranking the teams, the survey also gathered open-ended responses from fans about their individual superstitious activities.
The complete rankings of all 32 NFL teams are below.
