The Houston Texans might be considered a top team on the field going into this NFL season, but landing fifth on the Forbes’ NFL Team Values list puts them top 5.

Forbes lists the Texans at $1.45 billion behind the New York Giants ($.155 billion), the Washington Redskins ($1.7 billion), the New England Patriots ($1.8 billion), and topping the list for the seventh straight year the Dallas Cowboys ($2.3 billion).

Zero of the 32 NFL franchises declined in value in the past year.  The only team not to increase in value were the Kansas City Chiefs who stayed at a worth of $1billion.

Forbes lists the average NFL franchise is worth $1.17 billion more than any other sport, including the top 20 soccer teams across the world ($968 million).
