In fact, the figure is a measurement of all games that were shown to a national audience, which includes some games played on Sunday, Monday and Thursday nights. The NFL destroys every other sport in television ratings. Boring games yes, but many stay away because they love country.

The performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" was promoted on-air before it was performed, with an all-caps onscreen legend reading "National Anthem Coming Up Next" on top of a shot of US troops holding flags of the USA, the state of Arizona, and the P.O.W./M.I.A. movement. CBS benefited from an overtime thriller between the Packers and Cincinnati Bengals, while NBC and Fox showed less appealing games that contributed to an overall dip in viewership compared to the same weekend in 2016.

For last night's game between the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals, the Monday Night Football game received a 9.3 overnight rating for ESPN. NBC's Sunday Night Football, dampened by a crummy game, was off 10 percent from a year ago. Fox's afternoon game did a 10.3, down 16% from past year.

Other networks had to deal with National Football League games running longer than the time they were allotted on television.

The president may have his theories, but explaining why ratings are down isn't simple.

BUT the game was also a blowout. Cities across the country saw record highs in temperature, as the East Coast, Midwest and West Coast were in the mid-to-high 80s and 90s, giving many a last, late shot at enjoying summer.

With all of the national anthem protests around the league, there was talk about how it could impact NFL TV ratings.

President Donald Trump began railing against the protests, what is becoming known as the #TakeTheKnee movement, Friday at a speech in Huntsville, Ala., where he was campaigning for Sen.

CBS, which had the doubleheader on Sunday, reported an increase with a huge spike for its pregame show.

"People are going to tune in for the match-ups, the stars and hometown teams", Berke said.

For football fans, though, chances are they were attracted by better games.
