According to Google’s year-end top charts, these were the most-searched teams this season.
10. Baltimore Orioles
The O’s took the AL East for the first time since 1997 and made it to the ALCS before being swept by the number 2 on this list.
9. Charlotte Hornets
The Hornets returned to their original name and color scheme, and that was enough to land them on the list.
8. Milwaukee Brewers
The Brew Crew didn’t even make the playoffs, but they made this list due, in part, to their new unofficial mascot Hank the Dog.
7. Denver Broncos
No matter how good your quarterback is, getting blown out in the biggest game of the season will only get you to 7.
6. San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs captured another championship, and their competition didn’t even make the list.
5. Cleveland Browns
The Brownies haven’t changed their ways much, but the hiring of a new coach and the drafting of the most buzzed-about free agent upped their search stock.
4. San Francisco Giants
World Series champions will most likely get you into the top searches easily.
3. Cleveland Cavaliers
Cleveland made another big signing this year, in case you hadn’t heard. LBJ returning home put the Cavs into the top 3.
2. Kansas City Royals
The Royals lost the October Classic, but their Cinderella story captured enough hearts to catapult almost all the way up the list.
1. Seattle Seahawks
The Super Bowl winners blew out the Broncos all the way to a number one spot on the most searched list.
