The Eagles 23-9 win over the Cowboys was a turkey dressed up in Midnight Green.
And the viewing public noticed how bad it was.
The Cowboys-Eagles game had none of the piss and vinegar of the old days, and it drew just 16.933 million viewers. That’s down 8% from Packers-Chiefs a year ago.
However, Sunday Night Football has been down in all but one week this season (and back in Week 2, Patriots-Seahawks was up less than a percent), Thursday Night Football has been down in all but two weeks (Week 2 was up 1%, and Week 5 was up 2%), and Monday Night Football has also been up in three of its nine windows (the Week 2 Megacast was up 32%, Week 3 was also up 32%, and Week 8 was up 17%).
