My friends, those are some huge ratings and there’s no other way to put it. Those are absolutely monster ratings for NBC and the NFL.

At this point, I don’t think anyone can say with a straight face that the league is struggling to draw eyeballs. Clearly, people are excited and paying attention to big games.

The league might have gotten off to a slow start this season in the ratings department, but things are cruising right now for Roger Goodell and company.

Peaking with an average of 16.182 million viewers is an absurd amount for a regular season game. Those are some big numbers!

We’ll see what happens the rest of the way, but it was a great Sunday for the NFL. There’s no debate about that.
