The Jets and Giants practice and play in NJ.

I think QM must have removed NJ as an option to address this issue. I spent a good 10 seconds thinking I had forgotten the alphabet when NJ didn't appear after NH...

Went too fast and forgot the Rams weren't in St. Louis anymore.

According to Wikipedia, the Commanders are headquartered in Virginia (and play their games in Maryland).

Yep! And- I made sure to check Wikipedia on this just to be sure, and you wouldn't believe it- they're called the Washington Commanders!

aka the "commies", per cousin Sal of Bill Simmons and late night fame.

Overall though I agree that for Commanders maryland should also be considered acceptable.

I recommend clarifying that it's not necessarily where the stadium is, but their named location, to clarify NY Jets/Giants (who play in NJ) and the Washington Free Association of Football Playing Peoples (who play in MD)

I see many people still think KC is in Kansas. I know I did for a long time

KC is both in Kansas and Missouri. But the Chiefs play on the Missouri side.

Thank you for removing NJ for the confusion. But seriously, since the are called the New York Jets and New York Giants, I think NY would probably be the better answer. And I didn't know where Commanders played. Wasn't sure where the stadium was exactly but followed the same logic as I did for the Jets and the Giants.

They play in Maryland. They played in DC until the 90s.

If you aren't putting NJ for the Giants and Jets, take off SC for the Panthers too. It's literally right on the border, and only named "Carolina," not North or South.

Yes, but it's not like the Panthers are called the South Carolina Panthers... it's an entirely different situation.

And although it is near the border, it is very clearly situated in DT Charotte

It's really tempting to click NE for Patriots and WA for Commanders. I also got bamboozled by KS for Chiefs

FedEx Field is located in Landover, Maryland. The headquarters of the Commanders is in Ashburn, Virginia. DC should not be the correct answer for the Commanders.

Are you talking about the Maryland Commanders or the Virginia Commanders?

Didn't know DC was a state. Guess it's time to update the flag with 51 stars.

If NY is correct for the Giants and Jets then DC should be correct for Washington

You gotta clarify things better. I guess taking New Jersey out works, but for the Commanders they play in Maryland. So either specify it's based on their team name or have it be done based on where the stadium (which is what I think most would assume this quiz is about)

Wow I'm dumb, I missed the Commanders because I thought they played in Virginia or Maryland and guessed Virginia, I didn't even see DC as an option.

The description says it's based on where they represent, not where they play, but how does that work for the Patriots and Panthers? Maybe SC and the non-MA New England states should be removed like NJ
