Buffalo Bills Value: $1.5 Billion

Owner: Terry & Kim Pegula
Championships: 0
Price Paid: $1.4 Billion

Terry Pegula and his wife became heroes among local football fans when the owners of National Hockey League franchise, the Buffalo Sabres, swooped in and bought the Buffalo Bills. They last made the postseason in 1999 and as horrendous as their track record is, they still managed to set a team record for season-ticket sales last year.

Detroit Lions Value: $1.65 Billion

Owner: Martha Firestone Ford
Championships: 4
Price Paid: $5 Million

When longtime Lions owner William Clay Ford Sr. died in 2014, most expected his son Bill Ford Jr. to continue to run the team with his mother in the background. However, 90-year-old Martha Firestone Ford continues to be in charge. The Lions have been a disappointment for decades having only two winning seasons over the past 15 years (2010 and 2014) and have not won a playoff game since the 1991 season.
