Football madness showed no sign of abating this season as Sunday night’s Chargers-Cowboys game on NBC averaged 10.7 million viewers, making it the highest-rated television program of the week. It was also the highest-rated NFL preseason game of the last five years. NBC noted that last season each Sunday Night Football telecast came in first against the competition. The game averaged a 6.4 rating and an 11 share nationally, but in the teams’ home markets, ratings soared off the charts, with Dallas recording a 23.7/38 and San Diego a 22.2/37.
