Best Answer

This is because they have media markets large enough to sustain multiple teams and the necessary fan support. The states are:

New Jersey: Jets and Giants-The New York market is the largest in the country

Texas: Texans and Cowboys-Dallas and Houston are both enormous cities

Florida: Dolphins, Buccaneers, and Jaguars-All three are in large cities

California: 49ers and Raiders-Both teams are successful

Maryland: DC and Baltimore can both support teams

Missouri: Kansas City and St. Louis can as well

These are all big cities in states that happen to have multiple large cities and different markets. The only teams that are struggling financially are the Jaguars and 49ers.
