AFC East proves valuable among world's teams


Forbes released the 2013 version of its annual "The World's Most Valuable Sports Teams" list Monday.

Thirty NFL teams cracked the top 50, with the New England Patriots the second-most valuable of their kind and the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins making the top half of the list.

The Bills just squeezed in as the second-to-last american football team on the list and rank as the fourth-least valuable organization in the NFL. Here are the rankings:

No. 6: New England Patriots - $1.635 (billion)
No. 14: New York Jets - $1.284
No. 25: Miami Dolphins - $1.06
No. 46: Buffalo Bills - $805 million

The Dallas Cowboys were ranked as the NFL's most valuable team at $2.1 billion, and the European soccer club Real Madrid topped the entire list at $3.3 billion.

The St. Louis Rams and Jacksonville Jaguars were the only two NFL teams to fall short of the top 50.
