The Lions' $1.7 billion value is a 3-percent increase over the year before.

For the 11th consecutive year, the Cowboys are No. 1 on Forbes' annual list of the NFL's most valuable franchises with an estimated value of $4.8 billion.

The league average is $2.52 billion, with an average increase of 8 percent per team from the previous season. You'll notice that the Cowboys ($4.8 billion) are almost worth more than the Bengals, Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills combined ($5.1 billion).

It seems that the trick to increasing your team's value is to open a new stadium. Current owner Jerry Jones paid a reported $140 million to purchase the team in 1989. The team recently wrapped up a $47 million round of renovations at Bank of America Stadium, which was part of a five-year, $87.5 million public-private financing agreement with the City of Charlotte. The team rose in value by 16 percent thanks to the opening of Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the sponsorship dollars committed.

The most valuable are the Cowboys, Patriots, Giants, Redskins and 49ers. Also boosting National Football League team values: rich stadium deals and relocations, such as the Raiders' move to Las Vegas and the Chargers to Los Angeles.

Globally, according to Forbes' rankings of July, the Cowboys are followed by baseball's New York Yankees at US$3.7 billion, a figure the Patriots have now tied.
