    Washington: Average: 77,451; Sunday: 74,476

    Now, this is just for the attendance to the games, and not the tv viewership at home.

    Attendance was was up in some places and down in other places. What's the point?

    I think I found out why they only listed 8 games, It seems that only 5 teams are having above average overall attendance attendance this year, 13 are at average or above for home games, but 18 are below on home games.

    So you are saying that the data was cherry-picked? Still based on the data presented in the OP, I'm curious as to what point was being made?

    Sorry, maybe my posting confused you. There are different stats posted. Overall only 5 teams have at or above average attendance (home and away combined).
    On home games only 13 are at or above average with 18 below, 31 teams, one team the chargers have no numbers listed but they can't sell out a 27,000 seat stadium.
