49ers' worth surpasses $3 billion

The Dallas Cowboys captured the top spot for the 11th straight year, with a value of $4.8 billion, up 14%, according to Forbes.

Forbes says the value of the Bills was up 7 percent since past year, better than 13 other teams, but they were still looking up at the Detroit Lions ($1.7 billion) in 31st place.

The average National Football League franchise is worth $2.5 billion, with 27 of the 32 teams valued at $2 billion.

Here's a look at the list of the NFL's most valuable franchises.

Every NFL team is worth at least $1 billion, with the Buffalo Bills last at $1.6 billion. 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).

The Chiefs are now part of the NFL's $2 billion club. With Mercedes-Benz Stadium opening this season, the Atlanta Falcons had the biggest year-to-year jump from 2016 to 2017. The magazine estimates the Bills' value at $1.6 billion.

Forbes lists the Bills' revenue at $352 for a year ago, with an operating income of $53.

2013: $840 million (31st of 32 teams).

The New York Yankees are second on the overall list at $3.7 billion, then European soccer teams round out the top five: England's Manchester United at $3.69 billion, then Spanish powers Barcelona ($3.64 billion) and Real Madrid ($3.58 billion).
