My drawing of the Detroit Lions logo

Sunday isn’t often a day you look forward to. It’s the final day of the weekend, and the next day you’re back to work. However, come September everything changes. Sunday becomes the most anticipated day of the week, and why? Because of NFL football. Despite watching football every Sunday, drawing every NFL team logo by memory still proves to be difficult.

I’m familiar with all 32 teams in the NFL. Most football fans are. However, when it comes time to draw their logos it becomes more difficult to remember all the tiny nuances in the team’s logos. It also doesn’t help that I have zero (0) drawing skills. Honestly, my drawing skills are probably on par with a Kindergartener or Elementary student.

Drawing Every NFL Team’s Logo

I’m not afraid to be honest about my flaws. I’ll proudly come out and say it: I cannot draw. It’s something I’ve never been able to do. In fact, basically anything that has to do with arts and crafts I’m terrible at. Cutting with scissors? No idea how to keep it straight. Handwriting? Absolutely horrid. Drawing? Dreadful.

Thankfully, I have (some) skills in other fields so I don’t have to worry about being terrible at drawing. Something I’m good at? Making fun of myself. So, I found a way to incorporate this skill with my lack of skills in drawing. I decided I was going to go out and have my other fellow football fans identify NFL teams by my terrible drawing.

So, I got out some paper, found a pen, and got to drawing. Of course, to add to the fun I had to implement some basic rules for myself. The first rule? No looking up the logos. I have to do it all by memory. Google’ing or looking up their logos for help is cheating, and would disqualify me from the project. Additionally, I get one shot for each logo. If I notice something wrong, too bad. These drawings are set in stone and there’s no going back. I simply must own my mistakes. As far as rules go, that was pretty much it. In the words of Eric Cartman, “I don’t make the rules. I just think them up and write them down.”

Now that we’ve established the rules, let’s get to the game! Let’s see if these football fans are able to identify what team logo I’ve drawn, or if the drawings are too terrible to even recognize. After you watch the video, keep scrolling to check out every horrible drawing from all 32 teams in the NFL! Good luck!

Well, they did about as well as I expected them to do. Can’t say it’s their fault. I think I have to own this one. Keep scrolling to see my drawing of all 32 NFL teams!

  • Arizona Cardinals

    A drawing I made of the Arizona Cardinals logo

    Well, I didn’t start off great that’s for sure. I feel like this looks more like an Angry Bird than the Cardinals logo. At least it’s the right animal?

  • Atlanta Falcons

    My attempt at drawing the Atlanta Falcons logo

    Atlanta Falcons logo

    I don’t think this one is terrible! I got the overall shape down correctly. That signature little V shape is important and it’s there. I feel like any NFL fan should know that this is the Falcons logo.

  • Baltimore Ravens

    My drawing of the Baltimore Ravens logo

    Baltimore Ravens logo

    Yeah…not great. Looks more like a Dodo bird, or something. It definitely doesn’t look as intimidating as their real logo. I own that. The “B” should be a giveaway, though.

  • Buffalo Bills

    My drawing of the Buffalo Bills logo

    Buffalo Bills logo

    I’m not going to lie…I think I nailed this one. It’s clearly a Buffalo. Right? That random line is coming out of it for some reason, just like the real logo! Nailed it.

  • Carolina Panthers

    My drawing of the Carolina Panthers logo

    Carolina Panthers logo

    Look…what else do you want? Clearly that’s a Panther. I suppose it could be a Jaguar, but NFL fans should be able to recognize that profile. I hope…

  • Chicago Bears

    My drawing of the Chicago Bears logo

    My drawing of the Chicago Bears logo

    If you watched the video above…it looks like I got this one wrong myself during the game. I said it was the Panthers…which it could easily be! However, it’s not. It’s the Chicago Bears. I told you I can’t draw!!

  • Cincinnati Bengals

    My drawing of the Cincinnati Bengals logo

    My drawing of the Cincinnati Bengals logo

    Finally, an easy one. Clearly, this is the logo of the Cincinnati Bengals. It’s a dead giveaway. Even with me drawing it. Now, that’s saying something.

  • Cleveland Browns

    My drawing of the Cleveland Browns logo

    My drawing of the Cleveland Browns logo

    People I talked to had a hard time with this one. Kind of surprised me because it’s the most basic boring logo in the entire NFL. It’s a helmet! That’s it. Looking at it, I think you can see a helmet. Or maybe a hat. Regardless, it’s headwear and no other NFL team has that in their logo. Has to be the Browns!

  • Dallas Cowboys

    My drawing of the Dallas Cowboys logo

    My drawing of the Dallas Cowboys logo

    You know…looking at this it really hits me that I cannot draw. The other logos are tough, and I feel like it should be understandable that I can’t draw them. However, this is simply a star and I still couldn’t pull it off. Pretty pathetic.

  • Denver Broncos

    My drawing of the Denver Broncos logo

    My drawing of the Denver Broncos logo

    I know what you’re thinking. “Did he trace that?” Nope. It’s all me drawing from memory. Not too shabby, eh?

  • Detroit Lions

    My drawing of the Detroit Lions logo

    My drawing of the Detroit Lions logo

    This is a bummer. Somehow, my home town team ended up being the worst drawing of them all. How does that happen? It’s the one I’m most familiar with! Looks like a dog with a perm.

  • Green Bay Packers

    My drawing of the Green Bay Packers logo

    My drawing of the Green Bay Packers logo

    Simplicity at its finest. Surely you know this is the logo for the Green Bay Packers. It was nice to have an easy one thrown in. Although, I admit it’s still not great especially for how basic it is.

  • Houston Texans

    My drawing of the Houston Texans logo

    My drawing of the Houston Texans logo

    Hey, I don’t think this one turned out terrible. In fact, it’s pretty good! No other team has a logo that looks anything like this. Should be an easy one to get. You’re welcome!

  • Indianapolis Colts

    My drawing of the Indianapolis Colts logo

    My drawing of the Indianapolis Colts logo

    Maybe I can draw! That’s a pretty well drawn horseshoe. I can surprise myself sometimes. Keep going for some more awful drawings.

  • Jacksonville Jaguars

    My drawing of the Jacksonville Jaguars logo

    My drawing of the Jacksonville Jaguars logo

    That could be one of my better drawings. Look, it’s not my fault that the Jaguars and the Panthers have similar logos. I’m just doing my best over here. Never mind me. You see it, right? A noticeable difference between this and the Panthers.

  • Kansas City Chiefs

    My drawing of the Kansas City Chiefs logo

    My drawing of the Kansas City Chiefs logo

    Yeah, this is kind of cheating but…it’s the logo! I didn’t choose for it to have “KC” in it. It just worked out that way. Luckily for me…there are a couple more coming where this happened too.

  • Las Vegas Raiders

    My drawing of the Las Vegas Raiders logo

    My drawing of the Las Vegas Raiders logo

    As I look at this, I’m starting to doubt that the Raiders real logo is smiling. I guess I just felt like it was an artistic choice. Definitely not as intimidating as the real thing. I own that mistake. However, it might be cuter? If that means anything…

  • Los Angeles Chargers

    My drawing of the Los Angeles Chargers logo

    My drawing of the Los Angeles Chargers logo

    Ugh. I can’t even draw a lightning bolt?! That’s a major let down. I don’t know where the edges are supposed to go! It looks like a bolt to me. It shouldn’t be hard to tell that this is the LA Chargers, even if it is a bad drawing.

  • Los Angeles Rams

    My drawing of the Los Angeles Rams logo

    My drawing of the Los Angeles Rams logo

    Nope, I didn’t make this one on a computer. That’s drawn by hand. Pretty close to the real thing, I’d say.

  • Miami Dolphins

    My drawing of the Miami Dolphins logo

    My drawing of the Miami Dolphins logo

    Again, not the best drawing ever but I think it comes close. What else do you want out of me? I got the basic dolphin shape and that sun outline. That’s pretty much all there is to it.

  • Minnesota Vikings

    My drawing of the Minnesota Vikings logo

    My drawing of the Minnesota Vikings logo

    I’m not going to lie…I thought this could be one of my best. Then I realized that “my best” probably isn’t saying much. I get it. Someone said it looked like a chicken with a helmet and now that’s all I can see.

  • New England Patriots

    My drawing of the New England Patriots logo

    My drawing of the New England Patriots logo

    Eh. Not terrible! I think I have a problem making these mascots and logos smile instead of looking serious. I’ll work on that the next time around. I don’t think this is awful, though.

  • New Orleans Saints

    My drawing of the New Orleans Saints logo

    My drawing of the New Orleans Saints logo

    Even though it’s a horrible drawing, it’s still obvious what team this is. I will say that it’s a pretty difficult shape to draw from memory. Mine may be a little chubby or inflated instead of edgy, but it works. Get off my back, man!

  • New York Giants

    My drawing of the New York Giants logo

    My drawing of the New York Giants logo

    I think my effort here was pretty low but what do you expect? It’s two letters. That’s the entire logo. I didn’t design it, I just drew it. Don’t blame me.

  • New York Jets

    My drawing of the New York Jets logo

    My drawing of the New York Jets logo

    If you thought the last one was lazy, this one may top it. Logos with the name of the team in it is like cheating, I admit. However, I needed the break.

  • Philadelphia Eagles

    My drawing of the Philadelphia Eagles logo

    My drawing of the Philadelphia Eagles logo

    Woah! Not bad! Finally, I was able to make the mascot look a little more mean and intimidating. Thank goodness I came close to getting the Eagles correctly because I know how Philly sports fans can be. I do not want any of that smoke.

  • Pittsburgh Steelers

    My drawing of the Pittsburgh Steelers logo

    My drawing of the Pittsburgh Steelers logo

    You should be able to guess which logo this is. I suppose the team name being in the logo helps. Maybe I shouldn’t have included that part?

  • San Francisco 49ers

    My drawing of the San Francisco 49ers logo

    My drawing of the San Francisco 49ers logo

    Simplicity is key. Notice the attention to detail with the letters overlapping. I did this myself. Might have to hang this one on the fridge.

  • Seattle Seahawks

    My drawing of the Seattle Seahawks logo

    My drawing of the Seattle Seahawks logo

    This…didn’t come out the way I wanted it to. It turned out…wrong and sort of…Gonzo like? Sorry, Seattle.

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    My drawing of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers logo

    My drawing of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers logo

    I feel like I’m missing something here. I remembered the skull and cross bones, though. The flag should let you know it’s Bucs not the Raiders.

  • Tennessee Titans

    My drawing of the Tennessee Titans logo

    My drawing of the Tennessee Titans logo

    I am really bad at drawing stars. They seem so simple yet I can’t get it. Stars aside, this isn’t my worst drawing.

  • Washington Commanders

    My drawing of the Washington Commanders logo

    My drawing of the Washington Commanders logo

    Yeah, I was ready for this to be over by the time I got to Washington. I know it’s just a W with some weird lines. Close enough, in my opinion.
