The Packers have had plastic-reinforced grass for a while now. Does that count?

No.  I consider them a grass team, which is why I did not include them or any of the other teams that have that type of grass.  If I recall, don't the Broncos, Eagles, and Texans (pre-2015) also have the plastic-reinforced grass that you described at their respective stadiums?

 

I forgot something,  here's where I got most of the information from

You'd never know by looking at it. I'd say no.

It’s mostly artificial with only some grass grown in. I’d say it counts as turf

Other way around, it's mostly natural grass with some nylon fibers running beneath it to keep it from getting too torn up.

Yeah - you are clearly mistaken on this.

Great post, thanks.  It's sacrilege, but I like the uniformity of recent turf.  Usually looks clean, doesn't die or get chewed up, etc.  What really trips me out is brown colored turf that colleges use for the infield.

 

I forget which school it was, but I recall a college team with that type of field...using a black mound, of all things.

Probably releases carcinogens when exposed to the sun

Eagles have something similar, but the percentage of grass to turf is way slanted towards grass. You’d never tell, because the corners of the end zones are basically dead by the end of the year, and the hash area is torn up if Temple plays there before. 
 

im not sure it provides any benefit, and they may have actually done away with it, considering they resod during the season now.
