NEW YORK (AP) – The Redskins’ victory over the Cowboys with a playoff berth on the line was the highest-rated “Sunday Night Football” game since NBC picked up the package in 2006.
Washington won the regular-season finale 28-18 to clinch the NFC East and eliminate archrival Dallas from playoff contention. The network said Thursday that the game received a 17 rating and 27 share. The 30.3 million viewers were up 10 percent from the previous record for last year’s Cowboys-Giants game in the same slot with the same stakes, which wasn’t as close.READ MORE: Mild Celebrations In Downtown Dallas Follow Derek Chauvin Guilty Verdict
