Very strange... I typed in NFL team revenue in google and 2 of the top 3 results had to do with the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings team website is one of the top 10 google sites based on that search also and accounts for 5 of the first 10 entries. That's almost as good as typing in "miserable failure" and pressing the I'm feeling lucky button (go ahead try it. Make sure you put it in quotes). Searching "weapons of mass destruction" with I'm feeling lucky is fun too. Anyway, back on topic.
Here's a decent link.
Minnesota is 30th out of 32 teams in overall team values, but NFL franchises are hardly hurting. The value of the TV contract alone almost covers each team's salary cap (contract is worth about $77m per team).
