The NBC “Sunday Night Football” ratings jumped up by six percent from last week’s, according to Deadline.
The Dallas Cowboys came into Oakland Sunday night and managed to eek out a last-minute victory to beat the Raiders 20-17 and keep their slim playoff hopes alive, while making an impressive showing for the network and the NFL.
In comparison, last week’s battle between the Baltimore Ravens against the Pittsburgh Steelers ended up scoring a 5.4/19 in the key demographic with 17.20 million viewers watching.
Last night’s game was down by 20 percent in metered market results from the Cowboys’ victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Dec. 18, 2016. That game went on to earn an 8.1/26 among adults ages 18-49 with a whopping 24.15 million viewers.
