The Cincinnati Bengals are hosting the Indianapolis Colts in a preseason game. Apparently no one told Bengals fans though, as the majority of the seats in the stadium are empty.
It would be a bad look for the team if it weren't the fourth game of the preseason. None of the starters and most of the second-string players won't be taking the field tonight.
So why play the game? Well, the NFL refuses to get rid of preseason games, even though the crowds often look like this.
Check it out.
The fourth preseason game is usually a wash for every NFL team. It's a chance to decide who teams want on their final rosters, but none of the vital players see any action.
Fans don't have a ton of incentive to show up to a game where the fourth-string talent is in the game.
The game is scheduled to start momentarily.
