The Buccaneers (+20.0%) and Lions (+13.2%) were the only NFC clubs to see double-digit percentage jumps at the gate this season. The Buccaneers hosted 76,981 fans at London's Wembley Stadium in a designated home game against the Bears, while the Lions are making their first playoff appearance since '99. The Redskins had the NFC's largest drop (-7.5%). Listed below is regular-season attendance for all NFC teams, with comparisons to last year.
