Most NFL games had fans this week

Note: Lincoln Financial Field indicates max capacity, not attendance (unconfirmed). Chart: Andrew Witherspoon/Axios.

Nine of the 14 games in NFL Week 8 permitted fans, ranging from 500 friends and family in Detroit to over 12,000 spectators in Miami.

Of note: In most cases, the official attendance fell short of the maximum number of fans allowed, signaling that ticket demand is lagging.

The state of play: 12 teams — comprising 10 stadiums — have not allowed fans this season, and the Lions won't exceed 500 for the foreseeable future.

Looking ahead: Super Bowl LV at Tampa Bay's Raymond James Stadium will host ~13,000 fans (20% capacity).
