5. Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles cheerleaders are widely viewed as exceptional. They were the only squad selected to perform at the amFAR Inspiration Gala in New York, where they hobnobbed with the likes of Marc Jacobs and Hugo Boss. This is fitting, since they're the only squad in the NFL to wear uniforms designed by Vera Wang.

"In 2012, the Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders became the first squad in the NFL to produce a Cheerleader Calendar Mobile App," Eagles Director of Cheerleading Barbara Zaun said in an e-mail. "It ranked on Android Market's Top 5 Paid Sports Apps." She also said that they take fan outreach to the next level. "During the NFL's 'Back to Football' week, Eagles Cheerleaders show up unannounced at fans' houses to surprise them with season tickets," she said.
