Which team has the NFL's worst playing surface?

Steelers (Heinz Field) 27%
Raiders (McAfee Coliseum) 13%
Eagles (Lincoln Financial Field) 7%
Dolphins (Dolphins Stadium) 7%
Chiefs (Arrowhead Stadium) 6%

[Based on a survey of 320 NFL players]

FAST FACTS: Players could not vote for their own team's stadium.... Heinz Field's hybrid grass surface has long been criticized, never more than after rain, and wear and tear, turned it into a mass of mud during a Steelers-Dolphins Monday-night game last year; Pittsburgh won 3-0.... Dolphins Stadium also finished fourth (7%) in a poll asking which team has the best playing surface (SI, Dec. 1).

This is an NFL poll from the December 8, 2008 issue of Sports Illustrated.
