The Chargers, who will travel the most miles (26,803) next season, will amazingly travel more than 10,000 more miles than the Commanders, who will travel the least (10,550).

While the 49ers are no strangers to traveling far and wide for their games each season, and often take measures to combat their travel burdens, such as staying at The Greenbrier hotel in West Virginia for back-to-back East Coast games, teams like the Commanders, Bengals, Colts, Steelers and Falcons have at least a slight advantage over the well-traveled clubs.
