The New England Patriots should get 2,000 extra fans for Sunday’s home game versus the Cleveland Cavaliers, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.
Schefter reports the Patriots are seeking an additional 2,200 fans, which would make the team’s total for the game at Gillette Stadium the second-highest in NFL history behind the 2014 opener between the Broncos and Denver Broncos.
The team’s previous high was 3,200.
Scheffers report comes a week after the Patriots clinched their first playoff berth since the 2013 season.
The team will face the Denver Broncos in the AFC championship game on Sunday night.
