It should come as no surprise that America's Team is also the NFL's most valuable team.

Earlier in the week, Forbes released a list of the NFL's most valuable franchises and the Cowboys were No. 1 for the 11th consecutive year.

With a value of $4.8 billion, the Cowboys are No. 1 in NFL and are the most valuable sports franchise in the world.

And, the Texans aren't doing so bad themselves, making the top 10 on the list.

The Cowboys saw a 14 percent increase this year from increased merchandise sales and new revenue streams from the team's new practice facility, The Star, which contributed to $350 million in profit.

Love them or hate them, the Cowboys are laughing all the way to the bank.

Some of the numbers these teams are pulling look pretty ridiculous, but  it is important to remember that the NFL is a monstrously gigantic cash cow

Forbes reported that the operating profits for the NFL last season was $101 million per team and that every team came in above $40 million. 

And if that doesn't make it all clear for you, Forbes also says that "the NFL's  "$3.2 billion in league-wide income is $500 million more than the combined earnings of teams in the NBA, NHL and MLB," and all that money is just yearly income,.

Browse the photos above to see the what the other NFL teams are  worth.
