This is what happens when the NFL schedules a game between two bad teams on Thursday Night Football. Interest in the product just isn’t going to be there. Apparently, that now includes fans of the Arizona Cardinals in the desert.
Check out this photo of State Farm Stadium just before the Cardinals kicked off their Week 7 game against the Denver Broncos.

This might not be as embarrassing as we’ve seen with the Chargers in Los Angeles, but it’s right up there.
In addition to this, a nice chunk of the fans that decided to spend their Thursday night at the stadium are repping Broncos colors.
Such is the nature of the beast when the home team boasts a 1-5 record and is averaging less than two touchdowns per game.
