    Cowboys Save NFL From Totally Down Season-Opening TV Ratings

    There is no bigger ticket in town than the NFL – none.

    Football Sundays are more than a ritual for some, they're borderline a religion. They're a practice that we all preach and unless you're experiencing a game in person, you're taking it all in via the magic of television.

    The NFL completely dominates tv ratings this time of year.  is, by definition, the most successful “program” on tv. It's as factual as the sky being blue; however, the 2016 NFL season-opening ratings were pretty much all lower than they were a year ago.

    These are big games that the NFL is down, that word being used loosely, here. We're talking about the season-opener, opening SNF game, and opening MNF games. Is it really that big of a surprise, though? Among those eight teams (Broncos, Panthers, Cardinals, Patriots, Redskins, Steelers, 49ers, Rams) there were two quarterbacks not named and that we'd never really seen plus something called and whatever the Rams/49ers trotted out.

    There was one time slot as far as goes that actually saw growth in terms of viewership – the late-afternoon Sunday game. Who played then? Our beloved ‘Boys, of course.

    But RJ! What about the other games! Maybe people were watching other teams and not us?

    Who would do such a thing? Probably since he makes weird decisions. Well just for perspective check out the broadcast map of the late-afternoon game, courtesy of 506 Sports.
