The Cincinnati Bengals drew an announced crowd of just 39,804 at Paul Brown Stadium on December 1, marking the National Football League team’s lowest home attendance since December 24, 1995.

The Bengals defeated the New York Jets 22-6 for their first victory of the season, after 11 consecutive losses, but few fans bothered to turn up to witness the feat.

In part due to poor weather but more so due to the team’s dire record this season, it was also the smallest ever crowd at Paul Brown Stadium in downtown Cincinnati, the Bengals’ home venue since 2000.

The Bengals rank 31st out of the 32 NFL teams for attendance this season, ahead of the Los Angeles Chargers who are temporarily playing at LA Galaxy’s Dignity Health Sports Park, a facility far smaller than any other NFL stadium.
