Bengals Rank No. 42 Most Valuable Sports Team in the World

Frank Victores-US PRESSWIRE

Forbes ranked their valuations against each other, listing the top-50 most valuable teams in the world.

Forbes valuations of professional sports teams is always entertaining offseason fodder. Last year the Bengals ranked No. 33 on Forbes list of the Most's Most Valuable Sports Teams list, valued at $905 million. One year later, listing the most valuable teams in 2013, the Bengals dropped nine positions to No. 42 with a value at $871 million.

The Bengals cut ticket prices last season as much as 33% to help stem blackouts, which were a league-worst six in 2011. The result was only one blackout in 2012. A 10-6 record and playoff appearance also helped boost attendance 24%.

Most of the numbers for the NFL teams appear to be listing valuations dating back to last September (when Forbes usually releases the NFL numbers).
