Sure, they've won all but one game this season.

Yes, no NFL team hails from a smaller community.

But does that make the Green Bay Packers "America's Team"?

A new survey conducted by Public Policy Polling and released Wednesday indicates that the Packers are the overwhelming number-one choice for that coveted slogan.

Seven-hundred American voters were polled between December 16 and 18, and 22 percent of them selected Green Bay as their favorite team; only 11 percent picked the Cowboys.

In a contest between just the Packers and Cowboys — 49 percent selected Green Bay. 

Public Policy Polling also asked "Who is your favorite NFL quarterback?" Denver's Tim Tebow topped the list with 15 percent. Tony Romo could only muster 4 percent.

The survey did give Dallas the top spot in another, less prestigious category. Twenty-two percent of those surveyed said the Cowboys are their least favorite team.
