NFL mascots are a mix of ferocious felines (Panthers, Bengals, Jaguars), cartoonish muscle heads (Chargers, Steelers), with some horses (Colts, Broncos) and dogs thrown in (Browns, Saints). But there's one species that dominates the league's mascots --  and they have wings. 
With five teams choosing to be represented by these feathered creatures, birds reign supreme in the NFL mascot realm. While we wouldn't necessarily put our money on a cardinal against, say, a ram in a one-on-one fight, on the costumed sidelines they're all fair game -- or fowl.
Meet the NFL's 5 feathery mascots:
