Jaguars' London Game Pushes Team From Avg. Attendance Decline To Slight Uptick

The Jaguars, much like the Vikings, were beneficiaries of having a game in London this season (the first of four the team will play in the U.K. over the next four seasons). The Jags are averaging 65,555 fans per game after four contests, up 2% from the same point last year, when all games were at EverBank Field. When you take out the Jags' game in London, the team is averaging 59,554 for three games played in Jacksonville this season, down 7% from the same point in '12. The Dolphins lead all AFC teams in gains at the gate to date, up 13% at Sun Life Stadium. The Browns and Chiefs also are seeing respectable gains, up 6% and 5%. The Raiders are the only team seeing a double-digit percentage drop this season, with attendance down 10% at O.co Coliseum. Listed below is AFC attendance through Nov. 5. See yesterday's issue for NFC figures (THE DAILY).
