A few of your close friends

DETROIT -- Wow. If I had a few more minutes, I think I could count most of the people in the stands at Ford Field. I've never seen an NFL game with more empty seats at kickoff.

This is a 65,000-seat stadium. If I had to guess, there are maybe 40,000 or 45,000 people in the stands. Although fans are still coming through the doors, there are rows of completely empty seats all through the building.

Either way, this is an all-timer, at least for me.
