MAP: Michiganders really like the Detroit Lions



The 2014 NFL season kicked off this week and Facebook released a timely map depicting football fandom across each state. 

It may go without saying, but Michiganders really like the Detroit Lions; a following challenged only by a little Packers love in the northwestern corner of the U.P.

What do you think? Is this map accurate? Or do we have some closeted Broncos/Seahawks/Patriots fans among us who've declined to share their team love on social media?
