One problem seemed to worsen for the Ravens on Sunday.

There were about 10,000 to 15,000 fan no-shows at M&T Bank Stadium for the Ravens’ game against the Chicago Bears (announced attendance: a near-capacity 70,616). Critics of the Ravens’ kneeling during the national anthem would like to take credit for the vacant seats, but that’s just the latest of prevailing issues.
