I grew up in Maryland, and remember tearing into the bushels of blue crabs covered in Old Bay tossed out on the picnic table. So it was easy to choose the Crab Cake burger for the Baltimore Ravens.

I love Texas BBQ Brisket, and I just knew that one of the Texas NFL teams was going to get the Brisket Burger. The Cowboys drew the lucky card, so I drew my inspiration from the Cowboys. This burger is made of ground horse meat.
I don’t know a ton about Green Bay, but with just a bit of research, I found beer, brats, and cheddar cheese to be a common theme. For my Packers burger, I use all three. I simmer some brats in beer and onions, then sliced them thin to use as I normally would use bacon.
After toying with a few "mile high" ingredients for my Denver Bronco's burger, I found a way to work in the best of the Denver omelet ingredients...and yes, it is a damn tall burger.
I'm sure just about every Pittsburgh native knows Primanti Brothers, the sandwich chain famous in Pittsburgh since 1933. The chain is known as a sandwich shop where fries and cole slaw become part of the sandwich, instead of being served on the side.
It was actually pretty easy to come up with "DA BEARS" burger. The Chicago Dog, a hot dog garnished with just about everything but the kitchen sink, is already world famous...and it's pretty easy to make a hot dog shaped burger.
I credit my wife, who spent time in Jacksonville, for the Jaguars Biscuits and Gravy Burger. Jacksonville is home to some great Southern cooking, which is exactly what I tried to create in this beef and sausage burger, served on a fresh baked buttermilk biscuit, with pan-cooked sausage gravy.
While I knew early on that my Detroit Lions burger would be a "Blues" burger, I wanted to take it further than a standard blue cheese burger. A bit into my research, I found out that Detriot is a big potato chip town, and home of Better Made potato chips - ha ha...now I have my answer to the kicked up blues burger.
St Louis has some great food choices, and it was hard to narrow it down, but once I found the Slinger Sandwich, the Rams inspired burger was as good a made. This version has seared beef patty but you can do it with just about any meat.
