There were more than 20,000 empty seats for the Redskins’ last home game, and when many of them have been filled this season, it’s with fans of the visiting team.

You won’t have to break the bank to attend Sunday’s game when the Washington Redskins host the Detroit Lions.

In fact, it would cost you more to grab a foot-long submarine sandwich from Subway than it would to score some of the available seats.

According to Fox’s Washington, D.C., affiliate WTTG, Sunday’s tickets are selling for as little as $4.

The station cited GameTime Tickets has upper-level tickets for $4 and, on Ticketmaster, they are available for $6. The station added dozens of seats were available for less than $10.

Why so cheap?

For starters, the Redskins have an NFC-worst 1-9 record this season. Their only win came against the Miami Dolphins, who were winless at the time. To put that in perspective, the Dolphins have two wins since that time and are 2-8.

It seems the fans are tired of the franchise’s losing ways. According to the Associated Press, there were more than 20,000 empty seats at the Redskins’ last home game. When seats have been filled during this season, it’s with fans of the visiting team.

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold, who played at that last home game in Landover, Md., said it almost felt like a home game, the AP reported.

The only team worse than the Redskins is the Cincinnati Bengals, who play the banged-up Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday at home.
