NEW YORK (AP) -NFL fans came out in record numbers this season.
The league set a regular-season attendance mark for the fifth year in a row, drawing 17,341,012 fans and averaging more than 67,000 at its 256 games for the second consecutive year.
The total paid attendance topped last season's mark of 17,340,879, and the average of 67,738 fans per game matched the record. The NFL has set records for average attendance every season since 2003.
``Our teams and players are most appreciative of the large and fervent crowds that make NFL games so unique,'' commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday. ``We again thank the most dedicated fans in sports for their continued support.''
