NFL Logo History: 12 Teams, 12 Logos

This marks the end of our series on Football Logos. I find it so interesting the way that logos change over the years!

As we have looked through 12 of the most recognizable sports logos in America, I've loved seeing how each logo has evolved into a more simple, memorable logo that fans across the country can recognize.

Below you’ll find a list of Football logos which we’ve studied throughout this fall. Click on the links for each and you’ll see the short blurb with related facts about each logo.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Atlanta Falcons

While the Chiefs may have started with a relatively cartoonish style, the Falcons have always stayed by a pretty simplified bird design. To read the full article and get the worksheet that goes with it, click the button below!

Bears and Eagles

Chicago Bears vs Philadelphia Eagles

It is interesting that the Bears have opted for this simple capitol C look instead of capitalizing on their rather fear striking mascot. The eagles have certainly opted for that approach with their eagle! To read the full article and get the worksheet that goes with it, click the button below!

Buccaneers and

Denver Broncos vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

In a lot of ways, the Broncos logo is very similar to the Eagles' logo. They both use their mascot with a forward slanting, slightly open mouth. The buccaneers, on the other hand is nothing like any of the other logos studied through this series. To read the full article and get the worksheet that goes with it, click the button below!

Lions and Patriots

Detroit Lions vs New England Patriots

These two logos are very different, but I think they both work very well for the teams they represent. I love the way that the lion's stance is lunging forward, as if to strike. The Patriots, while more tame, also has a fierce determined look to it. To read the full article and get the worksheet that goes with it, click the button below!

Bills and Browns

Buffalo Bills vs Cleveland Browns

The last set of logos in the series couldn't be more different! While the Bills logo has many of the qualities that the other logos discussed in this series have. The Browns are the only team to have an empty helmet both as a logo, would you call that originality or lack of creativity?
