It was SUnday Night Football. The last game of the regular season. It was one of football’s most storied rivals, so it was only fitting for it to receive the type of ratings it did. This was per NBC Sport’s PR Twitter handle.
@NBCSportsPR: Last night’s @Redskins @DallasCowboys gm on @SNFonNBC drew 18.3 overnight rating, 30 share, best ever for a primetime reg-season gm on NBC.
This makes it more and more evident, regardless of the Redskins post season run, RG3 mean’s prime time gold.
