Below is a listing of every NFL team and their average distance from the other NFL teams. Also listed is the number of teams within a mileage range of the team.

Average Distance Between NFL Teams

Note: The distance between NFL teams was calculated from where their stadiums are located. The average distance between teams was found using an Excel formula developed by BlueMM, which finds the distance between two locations using great-circle distance; from there I created a mileage chart and calculated the averages. Stadium coordinates were retrieved from GeoHack.


Average (mi): The average distance (miles) that each team is from the other NFL teams.

# of Teams ≤ 100 Miles: The number of NFL teams located within a 100 miles of the team.

≤ X mi: The number of NFL teams located within (x) miles of the team.

Columns can be sorted by clicking on the titles in the header.
