The Bills' offense after week one isn't the only category where you'll find the team ranked dead last in the NFL.

The latest rankings from Forbes gives the Bills the dubious title as the least-valuable franchise in the league, worth an estimated $1.5 billion, up seven percent from last year. The league average is $2 billion.

Terry and Kim Pegula bought the team in 2014 for $1.4 billion, erasing fears that an out-of-town owner would swoop in and move the team to a larger market. The Bills play in the second smallest television market in the league, ahead of only the Green Bay Packers.

The Los Angeles Rams, which moved this season from St. Louis to the nation's second largest media market, saw their value double over the past year to $2.9 billion. The Rams are now the sixth most-valuable franchise in the league.

The Dallas Cowboys, owned by Jerry Jones, once again take the top spot, worth an estimated $4.2 billion. The New England Patriots rank second at $3.4 billion. The New York Giants at $3.1 billion, San Francisco 49ers at $3 billion and the Washington Redskins at $2.9 billion round out the top five.
