Most valuable sports teams: No. 19
Financial magazine Forbes released its 50 most valuable sports franchise list July 16, 2014, with the hometown Ravens checking in at No. 19, behind eight NFL teams but ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers. According to Forbes, the Ravens are valued at $1.227 billion, with the Steelers at $1.118 billion at No. 27 -- one spot behind the Toronto Maple Leafs. That's a hockey team. When considering only the NFL teams, the ranking mostly stayed the same as last year's list, with the Dallas Cowboys at the top, followed by the New England Patriots.
