One of her biggest accomplishments as a fan is when she got a jersey signed by the team’s running back, Chris Johnson.

He once assisted the coach of the team, Mike Vrabel, during an NFL draft and he felt so honored to do that.
Blake Shelton: Arizona Cardinals
Blake Shelton might be from Oklahoma, but since the country singer’s team has no NFL team, he’s a serious Arizona Cardinals fan. He’s said that he’s been a fan of the team since the mid-1990s. Oftentimes, the singer can be seen wearing the team gear. He made a video for the team’s website back in 2015, in which he’s said that he’s become friends with Larry Fitzgerald, the Cardinals legend himself. That same season, Blake was spotted at a game with his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani on the sideline.

In fact, he even tried breaking some team news in 2012 by tweeting that the team’s longtime quarterback, Peyton Manning, was retiring.
Derek Trucks: Jacksonville Jaguars
It can be hard finding a lot of A-list celebrities who are avid fans of the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, Derek Trucks represents the team every Sunday with dedication. The Grammy-winning guitar player played for bands such as The Derek Trucks Band and Tedeschi Trucks Band. He was born in Jacksonville and remained true to his hometown team. In a video he recorded for the team’s website, he said he’s been a fan ever since the team came to be in 1995. He called the team’s owner, Shahid Khan, “the best owner in the league”.
Chris Jericho: Minnesota Vikings
Chris Jericho, aka the pro wrestling star and podcaster, grew up in Canada. All the same, his football team is based rather far away. He’s a massive fan of the Minnesota Vikings. Like his persona in the ring, he’s not scared to speak honestly about the team. In 2019, he ripped the team’s huge contract for Kirk Cousins in an interview. He stated that he was “not happy” about it. In recent years, Chris has been seen at many Vikings games, including in 2019. He might be wiser to avoid the quarterback unless he wants a rather awkward conversation.
Jeff Goldblum: Pittsburgh Steelers
The Pittsburgh Steelers might be one of the most celebrated teams in NFL history, so it makes sense they have some very famous fans. One of which just so happen to be the one and only Jeff Goldblum. He was born and raised in the Pittsburgh area and has said that his family had Steelers season tickets growing up, meaning that he never missed a home game with his father. Back in 2016, he was able to meet former Steelers running back, Le’Veon Bell. As you can see in the photo, this moment almost made the actor cry.
Jeremy Renner: San Francisco 49ers

Kevin Durant was born in Washington D.C. and has not been subtle about the fact that he adores the Washington Redskins. The NBA star has been spotted at games many times, including in 2015 when he was pictured wearing the team colors from head to toe. That same year, he even showed off his custom Redskins-themed version of Nike KD8s, making everyone else jealous. In 2018, he trolled his then-teammate Steph Curry when his Redskins beat Curry’s favorite team, the Panthers.
Macklemore: Seattle Seahawks
Rapper Macklemore, otherwise known as Benjamin Haggerty, is somewhat bonded with the Seattle Seahawks – or any other Seattle-based team, really. When it comes to the Seahawks, he shows his support for them no matter what, regardless of their success. So, it makes sense that he’s a Seattle native. He has a song titled “My Oh My” in which he pays an ode to former Seattle Mariner color commentator Dave Niehaus. We can’t help but appreciate those fans who stick to their hometown teams no matter what.
Alyssa Milano: New York Giants
You might know her as the actress in Charmed, but Alyssa Milano is a sports fanatic. As a Brooklyn native, she grew up with her love of the New York Giants among other sports. In fact, she launched her own clothing line named “Touch” which has items related to NASCAR and the NFL. However, she’s also a woman of her word. She’s been raving about the Giants’ defense in many interviews. This definitely shows she cares and might even look through the box scores.
Tara Reid: Philadelphia Eagles
You probably know Tara Reid from American Pie. Like many other celebrities, she’s a Philadelphia Eagles fan – despite the fact that she grew up in New Jersey. As for her most recent career developments, she has a big role in the Sharknado series. With her eyebrow-raising career antics, we aren’t sure whether she roots for the Eagles just randomly or because she likes the team colors. Whatever it may be, we accept it.
Kate Mara: New York Giants
It would be safe to say that actress Kate Mara is steeped in the New York Giants franchise. Aside from being a dedicated fan, she’s actually the great-granddaughter of Giants founder, Tim Mara. Unlike other casual fans, Kate is well versed in the history of the team. In a recent interview, she stated that her favorite player is the legendary Lawrence Taylor. Of course, Kate has made quite a name for herself. Since her career took off in 1999, she’s appeared in movies like Brokeback Mountain, The Martian, and Fantastic Four among others.
Meagan Good: New York Jets
Meagan Good keeps the trend going in which actresses try their luck in the actress/athlete dating scene. Like many other relationships like these, theirs eventually came to an end. However, you can’t say that she didn’t try. By doing so, she became one of the many celebrities who’ve pledged their loyalty to the Jets. Additionally, Meagan’s acting career is very impressive. She started off as a child actor and to this day, she’s appeared in many TV shows and movies.
Nick Lachey: Cincinnati Bengals
Nick Lachey, aka a former 98 Degrees band member, might seem like a nice person compared to other celebrities. Don’t let his harmless appearance fool you. He will do almost anything for his Cincinnati Bengals team. As a matter of fact, he’s been kicked out of a Chargers vs. Bengals game after getting into trouble with another fan. Later, Nick tweeted, saying that the majority of Charger fans were fine – except for the “one guy that ruins it for everyone…”
Kate Hudson: Denver Broncos
You most likely know Kate Hudson from movies like How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Almost Famous, and more. The actress is a passionate Denver Broncos fan. This might be somewhat a surprise since we’ve only seen her in laid-back roles throughout her acting career. There’s no doubt that she doesn’t hide her love for the team seeing the abundance of photos featuring her wearing Broncos merchandise.
Gisele Bundchen: New England Patriots
It’s clear you’ve reached the top when your husband – who’s probably one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history – isn’t the main moneymaker in the house. Gisele Bundchen, aka Tom Brady’s wife, is a multi-millionaire as she’s one of the highest-paid models in the world. No big deal. Aside from her busy career and personal life, she’s been so supportive of her husband. After Wes Welker’s dropped pass in Super Bowl XLVI, she tweeted “my husband can’t throw and catch the ball” to defend her husband against those blaming him for the loss.
Phil Mickelson: Los Angeles Chargers
Just like many other fans, pro golfer Phil Mickelson wasn’t happy about the Chargers relocating from San Diego to Los Angeles. According to USA Today, he called out Chargers fans for not being as dedicated as he was to the team. That’s rather brutal if you ask us. “I just wish that all the people in San Diego loved them the way I do and fought a little harder to keep them, but I understand it.”
Kate Upton: New York Jets
While she isn’t dating former NFL quarterback Mark Sanchez anymore, that might have been related to the fact that he threw to the other team as if it were going out of style. Anyway, she was at a Jets game while that happened. Who knows where her allegiance stands now. It seems like it’s safe to assume she’s not such a big fan anymore. All the same, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t love sports in general. She’s been a regular at New York Yankee games too.
Chad Michael Murray: Buffalo Bills
Since he played Lucas Scott on One Tree Hill, we haven’t seen much of Chad Michael Murray. Still, the actor is known for his love of the Buffalo Bills on social media. In fact, his adoration of the team even rubbed off on his wife, Sarah Roemer. In a tweet he posted, he put up a video of him driving through a blizzard to reach the stadium. He truly is a fan after sitting in two feet of snow to watch a game.
Kid Rock: Detroit Lions
Kid Rock is rather deep-rooted in Nashville and its lifestyle but doesn’t hold him back from being on the sidelines of Detroit Lions’ games when they play in Tennessee. Kid Rock was the Lions’ honorary captain at Ford Field and even stood with the other captains for the coin toss. It’s refreshing to see that dedication and loyalty to a football team don’t have to be related to where a person is from.
Erin Andrews: Green Bay Packers
You’d think that reporters have to be unbiased when it comes to sports, but it turns out that’s not the case. Erin Andrew’s father, Steven, was a huge Green Bay Packer fan. This was passed on to Erin. She’s said of her father, “He has no boys, just two daughters, and even the dogs are girls. That was how we used to bond on the couch; we used to root for the Boston Celtics and the Red Sox. Green Bay Packers — because he grew up a Bart Starr fan. So I grew up a Brett Favre fan. That was my connection with my father.”
