The New England Patriots call Foxboro, MA home and the New York Giants call East Rutherford, NJ their home but both teams have a huge following in Connecticut.

Facebook put together a map that showed where football fans lived based on which NFL team they “like” on the social media network.

“Each county is color-coded based on which official NFL team page has the most Facebook “Likes” by people who live in that county,” a Facebook spokesperson said.

Six of Connecticut’s eight counties are red, for the Patriots, while Fairfield and New Haven counties are blue, for the Giants. The New York Jets do not have a plurality of fans in any U.S. country, according to Facebook.
