Okay, these ratings certainly aren’t the biggest that we’ve seen out of the NFL this season, but for a Tuesday night game, I think it’s fair to they’re respectable.

After all, people are exactly used to watching NFL action on a Tuesday night, but coronavirus has altered all of our schedules.

As I’ve speculated before, you have to wonder how games being played during the week will impact the NFL’s future.

The idea of a Tuesday night game was laughable 10 months ago. Now, a contender played the Cowboys on national television for America to watch on a Tuesday night, and the ratings weren’t bad.

You have to wonder if the NFL would ever consider putting more games on Monday or even an occasional Tuesday game if it meant more eyeballs.

Either way, the NFL is holding steady in the ratings, and I have no doubt that Roger Goodell is more than pleased.
