Greatest locations to look at NFL groups in Southern California

Are you a Baltimore Ravens fan looking for a place to watch Justin Tucker try to break the NFL record for the longest field goal? Do you seek a place where you can wear your foam cheese head among other Green Bay Packers fans without weird looks from other patrons? Look no further, staff writers Sandra Barrera, Fielding Buck, Kelli Skye Fadroski, Marla Jo Fisher, Richard Guzman, Peter Larsen, Michelle Mills, Stephanie Schulte and Anne Valdespino sought out the top NFL team bars in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

However, if you’re a fan of the Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts, Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Tennessee Titans — try as we might, we couldn’t find dedicated bars for fans of those teams.
