The following is a list and slideshow of photos of the 10 largest stadiums by capacity in the NFL in 2014. All of these stadiums are pretty big, but they are all dwarfed by the 10 largest stadiums in college football.

In general, NFL teams do not need to rely as much on selling tickets to make money like college football teams do. That's because the NFL generates enormous amounts of revenue every year from TV packages and merchandise sales.

If you want to see what each stadium on this list looks like check out the accompanying slideshow. Each photos gives an overview of the stadiums on the list.

1. MetLife Stadium - 82,566

MetLife Stadium, located minutes west of Manhattan along Route 3 in East Rutherford, New Jersey, is the largest stadium in the NFL in 2014 with a seating capacity of 82,566. Home of the New York Giants and the New York Jets, MetLife Stadium also hosted Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2, 2014.

I'm a lifelong New York Giants fan and went to football games at the old Giants Stadium in the Meadowlands many dozens of times, but I have yet to go to a game at MetLife Stadium. These days, I'd rather sit at home on my plush couch or recliner and watch the games on my big-screen TV.

With an official seating capacity of 80,735, Lambeau Field is the second largest stadium in the NFL in 2014. Located at 1265 Lombardi Avenue in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Lambeau Field has been the home of the Green Bay Packers since 1957.

Back in the 1990s, I went to the old Mile High Stadium for a Colorado Rockies baseball game. There were something like 70,000 people at the game and it was crazy being in a stadium with that many people for a baseball game. It was fun for sure.
