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
