Reactions:

As you can see, there was no change in the top-10 NFL franchises of all-time.

The top franchises stayed put, but the New England Patriots (Super Bowl Champions) passed the Miami Dolphins on the all-time greatness list for 13th place. The Seattle Seahawks, runner-ups, gained an impressive three spots and moved into a tie with the Arizona Cardinals for 20th best franchise all-time (although the Seahawks are quite a bit younger than the Cardinals). A few other teams moved up a spot, as a few others fell a spot. The Tennessee Titans moved the most in the wrong direction (falling two spots). Overall, the list didn’t change too much in 2014.
