They analyzed geotagged Twitter data from more than 180,000 tweets sent out across the country, flagging the use of hashtags like #RuleTheJungle, #WhoDey, and #RuleItAllmore to identify Bengals fans and #RamsHouse, #RamsNation, and #GoRams for LA supporters.

In the end, Cincinnati’s Cinderella story appears to have captured the nation’s heart; the Bengals are the perferred team in 33 states compared to the Rams’ 17.

Each team maintained a hold on their native state and much of the surrounding region, though Los Angeles appears to have strong support from two Midwestern states — Michigan and Wisconsin — where NFL fans spent years watching Stafford lead the Detroit Lions. Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware — states that are home to fans of Cincinnati’s division rivals in the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens — also skew towards the Rams.
