NFL Divisional Playoffs: Who Are Facebook Users Rooting For?

SFCARWith the National Football League’s divisional playoff round set to kick off Saturday afternoon, Facebook shared data maps with Fox Sports revealing which teams its users are rooting for in the four games this weekend, by county.

San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos: The Broncos dominated this matchup on Facebook, and Fox Sports pointed out that opposing fans tend to make up large chunks of the crowd at Chargers’ home games in Qualcomm Stadium.
