Lions fans need to roar louder, according to a new study from Emory University in Atlanta.

The study measured fan attendance on game day and also factored in things like the size and wealth of the market and whether fans still make it out to games when the team isn't performing well on the field.

The school ranked Dallas Cowboy fans as the most loyal. New England Patriots fans came in second and New York Jets fans rounded out the top three.

On the other side of the ball, Oakland Raiders fans ranked as the least loyal. Detroit Lions fans ranked 5th on the list.
