If a relatively new poll by a Mexican NFL website is true, the league doesn’t need to schedule any games for the Carolina Panthers south of the border anytime soon.

The website (link opens in Spanish) poll shows the Carolina Panthers 25th among NFL teams in popularity with Mexican fans. But Carolina is improving. A similar poll done two years ago had the Panthers next to last.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera is of Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage.

Mexicans also don’t think the Cowboys are America’s team. Dallas is No. 2 in popularity, behind Pittsburgh.
