1. Arizona Cardinals
WHERE: 118 E. 15th St., New York, NY 10003

WHERE: 800 2nd Ave., New York, NY 10017

WHAT: Brother Jimmy’s BBQ, Upper East Side location
WHERE: 1485 2nd Ave., New York, NY 10075

6. Chicago Bears
WHAT: Windy City Ale House
WHERE: 7915 3rd Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11209

WHAT: Brother Jimmy’s BBQ, the Union Square Location
WHERE: 116 E. 16th St., New York, NY 10003

14. Indianapolis Colts
WHAT: Keats Bar
WHERE: 842 Second Ave., New York, NY 10017
WHY: Colts fans share Keats Bar with Denver Broncos fans. Does Keats just have a thing for Peyton Manning? It’s anybody’s guess. Regardless, Keats is a self-proclaimed affiliate of both. It’s an Indy bar through and through.
15. Jacksonville Jaguars
WHERE: 6 W. 33rd St., New York, NY 10001
WHY: The Jaguars are one of those small-market teams that don’t have such a massive New York City presence. The general consensus, however, is that Jacksonville fans DO exist in New York City, and they meet at Legends.

WHAT: Bourbon Street Bar & Grille
WHERE: 346 W. 46th St., New York, NY 10036
WHY: Bourbon Street is an all-things-New Orleans bar. Therefore, it’s only natural that it would be the game-day spot for New Orleans Saints fans. This fact is confirmed by the bio on its Twitter page.
23. Oakland Raiders
WHAT: Peter Dillon’s
WHERE: 130 E. 40th St., New York, NY 10016

WHERE: 508 9th Ave., New York, NY 10018

27. San Francisco 49ers
WHERE: 221 2nd Ave., New York, NY 10003
WHY: Multiple sources — including the bar’s own front window — point to Finnerty’s as the go-to spot for Niners fans living in New York City. It might be closer to the Bay Area than their new stadium.
28. Seattle Seahawks
WHAT: Carlow East
WHERE: 1254 Lexington Ave., New York, NY 10028

29. St. Louis Rams
WHAT: Foley’s NY
WHERE: 18 W 33rd St., New York, NY 10001
WHY: The Rams are one of the few teams without a single bar to call their own on Sundays. A couple of sites claim that Foley’s is where St. Louis fans meet. It is, after all, a St. Louis Cardinals bar, so Rams fans should be welcomed with open arms.

WHERE: 78-80 E 4th St., New York, NY 10003
