The Dallas Cowboys are the most valuable National Football League team for an 11th consecutive year, valued at almost twice the league average, according to the annual list published by business magazine Forbes on Monday.

The Lions' $1.7 billion value is a 3-percent increase over the year before.

A year ago, Forbes pegged the Bears to be worth $2.7 billion, which ranked eighth in the NFL. Their value should continue to rise as they inch closer to the opening of their new stadium in L.A.
