NFL teams are gearing up to let more fans into stadiums. In Week 1, just the Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars allowed fans. The Cleveland Browns — hosting the Cincinnati Bengals in the so-called “Battle of Ohio” — were able to welcome up to 6,789 fans last night.

As teams are starting to let fans into the building, they’ll still need to be wary: a fan and groundskeeper at Arrowhead Stadium in attendance on opening night tested positive for COVID-19. However, players and coaches for the Houston Texans and Chiefs all tested negative.

The Tennessee Titans are taking a tiered approach, welcoming up to 7,000 fans — or 10% of the stadium’s capacity — in the lower bowl and club levels on Oct. 4. In the following home games, the team will allow 12.5%, then 15%, and possibly up to 21% of capacity — or 14,500 fans.

Week 2 Fan Plans: 

  • Bengals at Browns, up to 6,789 fans
  • Bills at Dolphins, up to 13,000
  • Vikings at Colts, up to 2,500
  • Falcons at Cowboys, up to an estimated 20,000
