The media while broadcasting these NFL games does all it can to mask the thousands of empty seats in NFL stadiums around the country. They never announce official attendance amounts, like they did in previous years when NFL stadiums will generally sold out no matter how bad the team was. This year, the NFL is suffering from historically low attendance figures as you can see in Week 10 of the NFL season. Here are some stadiums in week 10, which even includes a home game for a first place team.
Los Angeles Chargers VS. Jacksonville Jaguars (Jacksonville is in first place in the AFC South):
Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears (rivalry game):
New Orleans Saints Vs. Buffalo Bills:
Pittsburgh Kneelers (Steelers) Vs. Indianapolis Colts:
New York Giants Vs. San Francisco 49ers (broadcast too embarrassed to show how truly empty Levis Stadium is, look at the upper deck):
Houston Texan Vs. Los Angeles Rams:
New York Jets Vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Tennessee Titans:
Keep it up NFL! At this rate, NFL stadiums will have a thousand in attendance for games in Week 16.
