The Eagles Have Played In The 3 Most Watched Games This Season
So much for the Cowboys being America’s team. Monday Night’s Eagles-Chiefs game drew a 14.9 in the ratings, with an estimated 29,021,000 million people watching. That is the highest rating for any game this season and the largest audience for any Monday Night Game in 27 years. But it is more than just that. That news drew attention to the other games in the top 3. And guess what? All 3 have featured the Eagles.
In second place was the Eagles-Cowboys 4 pm game in week 9. That game drew a 13.3 in the ratings, with an estimated audience of 27.14 million people. Then in 3rd place is the Eagles-Jets game from back in week 6. That game drew a 12.8 in the ratings, with an estimated 26.09 million people watching.
Only one of those games was a National Game. The other two were both played at 4 pm. And while they were their network’s Game of the Week, people had other options for what to watch. They just mostly chose to watch the Eagles. The Eagles are now a team people seek out. You can imagine that the Sunday Night game between the Eagles and Cowboys is also going to be up there in terms of the highest-rated games as well. As could the Eagles-49ers game in week 13 which will likely be the Game of the Week at 4 pm for Fox that week.
As Philly fans, we are used to being the underdogs. But maybe we need to get used to them being front runners. They are the most-watched team this season, and there is a reason why they have so few 1 pm games this year. Networks want to air their games because people want to watch them play. Maybe we should start calling the Eagles America’s Team. Because it seems like they are the team America wants to watch.
