Who will make it to this year's Super Bowl? What's the best car name for an NFL Team? Which team reminds you most of a driverless car? Those are just a few questions posed in this year's fifth annual Swapalease.com's NFL and Cars survey.
The online survey of more than 550 football fans across the U.S. took place during the second week of August. Nearly a quarter (22%) think the car model “Vipers” would make the best NFL team name. Most fans believe there will be a repeat of last year’s Super Bowl, with Kansas City (21%) and Tampa Bay (21%) receiving the most votes for who will win this year’s ultimate prize – followed by Buffalo (7%).
Among the other key highlights of this year’s survey:
- 33% of people think Aaron Rodgers will be playing for the Green Bay Packers next year; 23% think he will retire at the end of the season.
- 29% of people think the Washington Football Team is the best choice for their long-term team name; second-place was Commanders at 20%.
- Most people think the Los Angeles Chargers remind them of a Tesla Model S
- Most think the Cleveland Browns remind them of a rusty car
- Most think the Las Vegas Raiders remind them of a stolen car
- Most think the Dallas Cowboys remind them of a driverless car
- Most think the Miami Dolphins will most likely have a problem with Covid-19 illness
- 77% of people said they did not remember any of the car commercials from last year’s Super Bowl
- Less than 5% of people said they planned to stream an NFL game to their laptop
Swapalease.com says 60 percent of survey respondents said they’re significant football fans, and 53% of survey takers said they are true car enthusiasts. Despite their records and recent success on the football field, most people said they are fans of the New York Giants (12%) or the New York Jets (7%).
“Football fans and car enthusiasts are both looking to enjoy their passions despite the ongoing challenges presented by the pandemic,” said Scot Hall, Executive Vice President of Swapalease.com. “We’re hoping this fall and winter that fans can safely fill football stadiums for a little return to normal, and we certainly look forward to learning about new vehicles and promotions that are a big part of football programming in the coming months.”
