The embattled National Football League continues to hemorrhage fans at record speeds, with owners, players, and officials stunned at empty stadiums throughout the United States during the organization’s flagship ‘Sunday Night Football.’
Fans who decided to attend Sunday night’s match-up between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants posted photos of the deserted stadium on social media, saying “lots of empty seats 10 mins into the game.”
Other fans also noticed the lack of people filling the stadium in Cleveland, as the Baltimore Ravens took on the Browns, posting “Plenty of empty seats in Cleveland today.”

The NFL is struggling to turn the page from a disastrous 2017 season, with furious fans changing the channel and deciding to stay home after months of protesting players “taking a knee” during the performance of the national anthem.
The League has yet to announce any changes that would prohibit political demonstrations on the field.
