A spokesperson for Sidelines commented:
“As the 2023 NFL season edges closer, it’s interesting to get an insight into how teams stack up against each other in terms of online following and fan engagement.
“Three-time Super Bowl winners, Kansas City Chiefs, are the current TikTok frontrunners with a near 700,000 follower lead over the Philadelphia Eagles who placed second.
“Detroit Lions appear to receive the most consistent fan support on TikTok, despite posting few videos to the platform. With the most likes per video on average, they even manage to outrank the likes of more globally recognised teams such as the Dallas Cowboys and the Buffalo Bills in terms of TikTok engagement.
“With some teams being relatively new to TikTok, it will be fascinating to see whether the rankings change substantially once the new season begins and gameday hype picks back up.”
