Sunday afternoon, the Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens faced off during a Wild Card playoff game. The Nashville-based franchise served as the home team after winning the AFC South and allowed a 21%-capacity crowd at Nissan Stadium. An estimated 14,520 people showed up for Sunday's playoff game despite 5,844 new COVID-19 cases on Saturday.
When the viewers saw the packed stadium, they responded with a variety of comments. Some people said they want every stadium to have the same percentage of fans, but many others disagree. A vocal majority noted that the game will be a "superspreader" event and that Tennessee's cases will only continue to climb over the coming weeks. Some of these Twitter users also made comments about politics and made guesses about which candidate the fans supported during the election.
So I’m watching this Titans/Ravens game and the stadium is PACKED. Then I see things like TN leading the nation in covid cases per day. 5800 in the state just yesterday and I’m like what in the ever living hell are they thinking?!?! This is soooo stupid. https://t.co/7o1Dd0nmgP— Craig Mitchelldyer (@craigmdyer) January 10, 2021

Is it me or are some of the #NFL teams who still let thousands of fans in their stadium kind of hypocritical having a moment of silence for the lives lost to covid? 🤔 @ESPNNFL @NFLonFOX @dallascowboys @Titans— Xavo (@pumpboy00) January 10, 2021
