It’s no secret that the NFL is far and away the most popular sports league in the United States. Its popularity grows in leaps and bounds each successive year thanks to a combination of the quality of its product, its innovation in technology, its embracing of fantasy sports, and now the added enticement of legalized sports gambling in many states.

Television has shown that is where the real juggernaut of the NFL is able to show its strength. The Super Bowl is annually the most watched event on television in the country, and its popularity around the globe is on the rise as well. With the Big Game right around the corner, online casino comparison site KingCasinoBonus wanted to determine which analyst was the favorite among NFL fans.

By analyzing a month's worth of Google keyword searches of 395 analysts, it was determined that Pro Football Hall of Famer Peyton Manning, with an average of 275,840 Google searches a month, was the NFL personality that attracted the most attention online with fans. After spending 18 seasons in the league and winning two Super Bowls, Manning has easily transitioned into the media world. He and his brother, Eli Manning, have served as the commentators for ESPN2’s alternate broadcast of Monday Night Football since 2021.

Second on the list of most searched analysts was another Hall of Fame quarterback, Terry Bradshaw. A four-time Super Bowl champion with the Pittsburgh Steelers and member of the NFL’s All-Decade Team for the 1970s, Bradshaw has consistently been one of the most popular broadcasters in the sport since entering the field after his retirement. Since 1994 Bradshaw has helped anchor Fox NFL Sunday; his average search per month was 230,042.

Rounding out the top three most popular analysts is one of the most visible former NFL players in the media, Hall of Famer Michael Strahan. A Super Bowl champion with the New York Giants and the NFL’s all-time single-season sack record holder, Strahan smoothly moved into the next phase of his professional career. Currently sitting alongside Bradshaw on Fox NFL Sunday, Strahan is also a host for ABC’s Good Morning America. He averaged a total of 221,491 searches per month.

The other top searches of the year include NFL Hall of Famer Michael Irvin, now an analyst with the NFL Network’s NFL GameDay Morning, and the recently retired Super Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski, now serving as a contributor on both Fox NFL Sunday and Fox NFL Kickoff.
