The ratings for “Thursday Night Football” are in and they’re not as pretty as weeks past.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the “Thursday Night Football” game between the Broncos and the Falcons brought in about 6.59 million viewers last night, bringing in a 2.1 rating among adults ages 18 to 49. (RELATED: Ram’s Star’s House Burglarized During ‘Thursday Night Football’)

Last week’s “Thursday Night Football” game between the Eagles and the Giants brought in 10.7 million viewers, with a 3.4 metered rating among adults ages 18 to 49.

The decline in ratings is likely attributed to several factors, largely because nobody cares about the Arizona Cardinals or the Denver Broncos. Both teams have a record under .500 and were up against a riveting ALCS series between the Red Sox and the Astros on at the same time.

In non-sports programming, “The Big Bang Theory” brought in a 2.0 rating on CBS, hitting an all-season low among adults ages 18 to 49.
