Full Answer

Listed in the same order as the stadiums, the NFL teams that play in these stadiums are Kansas City Chiefs, Carolina Panthers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Washington Redskins, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Tennessee Titans, Houston Texans, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Chicago Bears, Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins and Arizona Cardinals.

The majority of the stadiums with natural grass have open domes to aid in the growth of the natural grass. NRG Stadium, Lucas Oil Stadium and University of Phoenix were constructed with retractable roofs that allow direct sunlight on the grass when the weather permits.

The most unique grass stadium is the Arizona Cardinals University of Phoenix Stadium. This grass field was constructed on top of a tray, which is set on rails allowing it to be rolled in and out of the stadium depending on what event is being hosted. By placing the grass outside of the stadium until game day, the grass field remains in the sun getting the maximum amount of sunshine and nourishment.
