The New York Giants announced paid attendance of 76,269 fans for Sunday’s season finale against the Washington Redskins. Actual attendance was probably some 50,000 less than that. Giants’ defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul took a post-game shot at fans who stayed home, preferring to watch a two-win team playing in frigid temperatures from the comforts of their living rooms.

“Obviously, the so-called fans weren’t out there, but I appreciate all the fans that came out to show their support. Without them, it’s really just us,” Pierre-Paul said. “So, I appreciate the fans that came out. They didn’t have to but those are the true Giants fans.”

Those who did attend showered quarterback Eli Manning with affection, with signs and by chanting his name near the end of the game.
