Denver has some things to say about the Bronco offense, despite taking home a "W" in the season opener against the Ravens. Really though, the criticism is all because of the love for the game -- all the games, actually.

According to WalletHub, Denver sports fans are almost best in the country, second only to Boston's.

Green Bay fans are called the best in football; Denver ranks fourth in that category. When you combine it with:

  • 16 in basketball
  • 19 in baseball
  • 8 in hockey
  • and 26 in soccer

... the numbers, mean a high score overall for the Mile High City. 

WalletHub says Americans spend an average of 8 hours per week watching sports, and more playing them.

Cincinnati is the second-best midsize city, and Standford, Calif. is the second-best small city.

Hackensack comes in at 341, the worst in the U.S.
