People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has ranked the Oakland Raiders' hometown McAfee Stadium as the second most vegetarian-friendly football stadium in the National Football League.

The animal rights group announced a ranking of football stadiums Wednesday based on the quality and quantity of vegetarian food items available to patrons at concessions, according to PETA.

"Raiders fans have enough to worry about-they don't need to be thinking about the clogged arteries and cruelty to animals that come with eating meat," PETA assistant director Dan Shannon said in a prepared statement.

Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego took first place, according to PETA.
