The Green Bay Packers may be the only major professional franchise in the U.S. owned by its fans, but that hasn't kept the franchise's price tag down one bit. Forbes' most recent study into the world's most valuable sports franchises revealed Green Bay was No. 18 on the list, worth an eye-popping 1.161 billion, tenth most in the NFL. That spot is one lower than in 2012 at No. 17, when the Packers were valuated to be worth 1.09 billion. All but two NFL teams cracked the top 50 this season with the Dallas Cowboys once again leading the way with a 2.1 billion valuation, fifth most of all franchises. Dallas has been the NFL's most valuable team since 2007. Green Bay comes in as the second most valuable team in the NFC North with the Chicago Bears at No. 16, the Minnesota Vikings No. 35 and the Detroit Lions No. 43. Here is the complete list of NFL teams in Forbes' top 50: 1.Dallas Cowboys (5)2.New England Patriots (6)3.Washington Redskins (8)4.New York Giants (9)5.Houston Texans (13)6.New York Jets (14)7.Philadelphia Eagles (15)8.Chicago Bears (16)9.San Francisco 49ers (17)10.Green Bay Packers (18)11.Baltimore Ravens (19)12.Indianapolis Colts (20)13.Denver Broncos (22)14.Pittsburgh Steelers (23)15.Miami Dolphins (25)16.Carolina Panthers (26)17.Seattle Seahawks (27)18.Tampa Bay Bucs (28)19.Tennessee Titans (29)20.Kansas City Chiefs (30)21.Cleveland Browns (34)22.Minnesota Vikings (35)23.New Orleans Saints (36)24.San Diego Chargers (38)25.Arizona Cardinals (39)26.Cincinnati Bengals (42)27.Detroit Lions (43)28.Atlanta Falcons (44)29.Buffalo Bills 46)30.Oakland Raider (50)
