Thanks to the trailblazing efforts of full beards like Ryan Fitzpatrick, neck beards like Andrew Luck, and handlebar ‘staches like Cool Joe Flacco.. facial hair has made QUITE the comeback in the NFL. DirecTV was kind enough to prove this via a super sweet infographic breaking it down by position, team, and style.

Even as a New England fan I didn’t realize they were getting their Red Sox on HARD with their beards. Tough to pay attention to facial hair when clean-shaven Tom Terrific is it out there straight slaying fools. The stats back it up too.. if my QB isn’t clean-shaven than GTFO!
