NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” ratings were down from last week’s near season high by 10 percent, according to Deadline.
The 31-28 victory by the Pittsburgh Steelers over the Green Bay Packers at Heinz Field last night might have been a nail-biter for the fans, but that apparently didn’t translate to a record-setting number of viewers. (RELATED: NFL Ratings Tank–Worst Viewership In Nearly Two Decades)
Last night’s Week 12 matchup scored a 12.2/20 in metered market results. That’s down from last week’s battle in Texas between the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles’ 37-9 beat-down ending up scoring a 7.0/23 rating among adults ages 18-49, with 21.06 million viewers tuning in. It was also the highest rated primetime game in the 2017-2018 season since Week 1.
In comparison, Sunday night’s game came in just 3 percent ahead of the week 12 matchup last year between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos. The AFC West overtime battle scored a 6.2/21 rating in the key demographic and had 18.44 million viewers.
