Of course, there is a twist.
The New England Patriots do not play in Boston, their Gillette Stadium is in Foxborough, Massachusetts, a suburban town a 45-minute drive from downtown Boston. The data for “Boston” selected was for the metropolitan statistical area of Boston–Cambridge–Newton.
The Philadelphia Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field is in Philadelphia.
