    The best fans in the National Football League braved harsh weather along the shores of Lake Erie to root for a losing team last year.
    ....
    The Cleveland Browns, not the Buffalo Bills, are No. 1 in the annual rankings of fan loyalty ....

    The Browns stumbled to a 6-10 record last year, their third straight losing season. Yet Browns Stadium was sold out for every game, helping to push Cleveland to the top of the fan-loyalty list.
    Buffalo is No. 6 among the league's 32 teams, drawing credit for strong attendance at Ralph Wilson Stadium despite a small market, chilly late-season games and a team that has lost a few more games than it won during the past decade.
    The study set out to identify the NFL's best fans. Not the ones who turn out in strong numbers for a winning team, but the ones who stay loyal even if their team is losing, the weather is frightful or their local market is small.

    So the Pats' fans were by definition, ineligable. Good for the Cleveburghers.
