Americans' love for football runs deep, which explains why so many fans are willing to travel to root for their favorite teams. But which matchups are providing the most incentive?
We examined Vivid Seats ticket data from the regular NFL 2014 season to get an idea. Explore the interactive below to see where people from each state are traveling most to attend the out-of-state games of their choice.
Note: In this graphic, the New York Giants and the New York Jets are treated as New York teams even though they play in New Jersey. Furthermore, when selecting New York or New Jersey, the Giants and the Jets are not factored into the results. The Washington Redskins are also treated as a D.C. team even though they play in Maryland.
