A long time ago on a gridiron far, far away...
We take a look at what all 32 NFL helmets would look like in the Star Wars Universe thanks to graphic designer John Raya.

Arizona Cardinals = Yinchorr Royal Guards
The guards who protect Emperor Palpatine are far more intimidating than a diminutive bird. They also fit quite well with head coach Bruce Arians' trademark Kangol hat.
Atlanta Falcons = Ryloth Interceptors
A regular of Jedi pilots, "Interceptors" also is a perfect nickname for a team with a ball-hawking secondary like the Falcons.
Baltimore Ravens = Mygeeto Siths
Browns fans could definitely see the parallels between Art Modell and Emperor Palpatine when the former moved the franchise from Cleveland to Baltimore in 1996.
Buffalo Bills = Tatooine Banthas
The Bills' logo and Banthas' one is quite similar, as they both feature giant, hairy mammals. Hopefully the Banthas also didn't go nearly 20 years between playoff berths.
Carolina Panthers = Malastare Dugs
Featured in The Phantom Menace, would anyone really be surprised if Cam Newton showed up to a postgame press conference with these Dugs' spectacles on?
Chicago Bears = Hoth Wampas
The ice creature that nearly killed Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back, Soldier Field in December can feel a lot like the planet of snow and ice known as Hoth.
Cincinnati Bengals = Iridonia Zabraks
There was no cooler-looking villain in the Star Wars series than Darth Maul. It's only fitting that the Bengals feature linebacker Vontaze Burfict, the NFL's villain supreme.
Cleveland Browns = Raxus Prime Jawas
Just like no one really knows what these tiny pests look like out of their hooded costumes, it's a mystery when the laughingstock of the league will finally turn itself around.
Dallas Cowboys = Yavin Rebels
Only "America's Team" could be paired with the Rebel Alliance, as both are cheered on around Earth by tens of millions of adoring fans.
Denver Broncos = Hoth Tauntauns
The snow lizard ridden on the ice planet of Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back, tauntauns have a striking resemblance to Denver's current broncos logo.
Detroit Lions = Dathomir Rancors
Detroit's franchise history is about as ugly as this pet monster of Jabba the Hutt, as the Lions still have just one postseason win since 1957.
Green Bay Packers = Nal Hutta Hutts
The transition from the iconic Green Bay "G" logo to the morbidly obese Jabba the Hutt is so seamless it's make you throw up in your mouth just a little bit upon seeing it.
Houston Texans = Vlesia Reeks
Used to kill prisoners for sport in Attack of the Clones, we'd like to see someone try to ride this giant reptile instead of a bull at a Texas rodeo.
Indianapolis Colts = Mos Eisley Troopers
Based on the aim of Storm Troopers in the films, we assume the Mos Eisley quarterback would have a completion percentage in the single digits.
Jacksonville Jaguars = Kashyyyk Wookies
Who wouldn't want to see Chewie play quarterback, barking out audibles at the line of scrimmage and throwing the ball at 150 MPH?
Kansas City Chiefs = Endor Ewoks
The teddy bear-like stars of Return of the Jedi work perfectly with the arrowhead logo, as these animals led a tribal existence in the forest.
Los Angeles Chargers = Dorin Lightsaber
Now that the Chargers have moved from San Diego to Los Angeles, they might as well change their nickname to the "Lightsabers" as an ode to their new home.
Los Angeles Rams = Ryloth Twi'leks
These remodeled horns patterned after the tentacles of the creatures seen in Jabba the Hutt's lair give some much-needed texture to the Rams' helmet.
Miami Dolphins = Rodia Greedos
Can the Dolpins please go back to their old logo instead of the current one that belongs in a seaquarium? Even this one featuring a Star Wars alien would be an upgrade.
Minnesota Vikings = Shili Togrutas
Technically, Togrutas have head tails and not horns, but the visual difference is negligible and the purple and gold color scheme works well for the human-like species.
New England Patriots = Coruscant Jedis
Most people compare Bill Belichick and his hoodie to the evil Emperor Palpatine but no one can deny Belichick's Jedi-like mastery of the NFL with his five Super Bowl rings.
New Orleans Saints = Affa Androids
Not only does the black and gold work perfectly for C-3PO's home team, his stiff-armed posture flawlessly replaces the Saints' fleur-de-lis logo.
New York Giants = Kuat Walkers
Used by the Galactic Empire to crush the rebellion, the walkers not only form a great resemblance to the Giants' "NY" logo, they also gigantic by their very nature.
New York Jets = Yavin 4 X-Wings
The Jets' uniforms are great but devoid of a plane logo. The X-Wings' helmet fixes that and also pays tribute to the vehicle Luke Skywalker used to destroy the Death Star.
Oakland Raiders = Coruscant Vaders
This is, hands down, the best helmet of the bunch. Not only does "Vaders" rhyme with "Raiders," the villain's iconic mask with crossing lightsabers is the peak of evil.
Philadelphia Eagles = Dagobah Yodas
The green and black colors work so well for Dagobah's swampy terrain and how can you not love Master Yoda's massive ears in place of Philly's eagle-wing decals?
Pittsburgh Steelers = Ryloth Droidekas
The military droid is the exact kind of steel machine you would expect to see manufactured in Pittsburgh — about 100 years in the future.
San Francisco 49ers = Geonosis B1s
The droid equivalent of a Storm Trooper, it's only right that a franchise which has fallen so quickly from glory would be linked to these cheap foot soldiers.
Seattle Seahawks = Toydaria Wattos
The junk dealer Anakin Skywalker encounters in The Phantom Menace actually looks almost identical to the current Seahawks logo, just with a shorter snout.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers = Tatooine Tusken Raiders
The thieves who rob Luke Skywalker in the first film aren't quite as intimidating as true buccaneers but the pewter works perfectly for these desert creatures.
Tennessee Titans = Dxun Mandalorians
This helmet would instantly go from one of the worst in the NFL to the best with the addition of bounty hunter and fan favorite Boba Fett to the logo.
Washington Redskins = Naboo Gungans
Like the most infamous Gungan, Jar-Jar Binks, the Redskins are a franchise in need of a nickname change and universally loathed for their ineptitude.
