Jousting horses for Chargers is not a good clue either. They definitely have lightning bolts on their helmets.

Haha. Chargers are military horses though. The name, Charger, has absolutely nothing to do with lightning. As a long time Charger fan we all know how weird it is that we have lightning on our helmets, but we just go with it!

I'm no fan of the Patriots, but to say they win by cheating is just ridiculous. The b.s. with the videotaping and the deflated balls was so minor and had very little effect on them winning games. In all their super bowls, they've never been found guilty of cheating. In fact their last win over the Falcons was the biggest comeback in SB history.

That was a little tongue in cheek, responding to 'They don't cheat, they win', though saying that it 'had very little effect on them winning games' does sound like you agreeing that they were cheating, even if you only think it was in a minor way

I hate it when people call lions "The Kings of the Jungle." They live in the savannah. Tigers are the true kings of the jungle, therefore the Bengals should be the answer.

It's based on the percentages of people who took the quiz and how well they did. Since apparently a lot of people who took the quiz did very well, it turns out you need a perfect score to be in a high enough percentile for all 5 points.

"Jousting horses" is a horrible clue. Also, simply saying "politically incorrect" is a misleading clue. Try "politically incorrect name" or something.

All of these comments about this or that being a terrible clue really surprise me. If the possible correct answers were part of the "anything in the world category", that may be correct. Since you have a VERY limited number of possible correct answers, it should be easy to figure out the one that best suits the hint. You either know the names of the NFL teams or you don't.

Politically Correct, interesting choice. Tolerance is important but political correctness (which isn't the same) has gone way too far. You can't even call a spade a spade without someone getting offended. There's a difference between stating facts and hate speech. One's rights dont allow them to infringe on the rights of another. This PC culture of fear, entitlement, and ironic and hypocritical bigotry will only further widen divisions.

This is a totally sweet speech, but Washington's name is still racist as hell. Yes, political correctness has pushed things too far, but racism still exists, and that team's name is a nice example of it. It's a slur, plain and simple. Their fans should just stop being babies and vote to change the name to the Skins, which is what they're called half the time anyway. They can change the logo to a pig, which would play off "pig skin" and give a nice nod to their iconic Hogette fans. It's a better name; it isn't racist; and it actually has some connection to the team and city, unlike what they have now. Problem solved.
