Powell’s POV: The week five games averaged 1.161 million viewers. It will be interesting to see what happens with the scheduled home game for the Seattle Dragons this week, as ProFootballTalk.com notes that the Washington Governor has banned gatherings of more than 250 people. The Dragons play their home games at Century Link Field, and a stadium concessions worker recently tested positive for the coronavirus.
Week One average: 3.118 million viewers
Week Two average: 2.057 million viewers
Week Three average: 1.611 million viewers
