IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) — For the seventh consecutive year, the Dallas Cowboys sit atop Forbes’ list of the ‘Most Valuable NFL Teams’.

The study values the Cowboys at $2.3 billion, up from $2.1 billion in 2012. The Cowboys are among five teams that posted double-digit revenue gains over the past year.

Forbes cites the Cowboys recent 25-year stadium naming rights deal with AT&T, which is estimated at $500 million.

The New England Patriots ($1.8 billion), Washington Redskins ($1.7 billion), New York Giants ($1.55 billion), and Houston Texans ($1.45 billion) round out the top five.

With an $825 million valuation, the Oakland Raiders bring up the rear.

In all, the NFL’s 32 teams are worth, on average, $1.17 billion, 5 percent more than a year ago.

In comparison, the world’s top 20 soccer teams have a mean value of $968 million. The NFL average also tops that of other professional leagues in the U.S.: MLB ($744 million), NBA ($509 million, and the NHL ($282 million).
