The Dallas Cowboys beat the Washington Redskins Thursday night in Dallas, 38 to 14.

The matchup between the two teams is one of the most storied in the NFL and the two teams are historically popular with their rabid fan bases.  

However, that fact was not on display last night when the teams gathered in Dallas. According to tweets from reporters at the game, the crowd was absolutely abysmal for the matchup.

Just look as this series of tweets from local and national reporters:

 

 

The popularity of the NFL has taken a severe hit since dozens of players in the league participated in national anthem protests. Fans have burnt their gear and ratings have steeply declined.

If last night’s game is any indication, the NFL is in big trouble.
