Patriots @ Colts November 4th will be the most watched regular season game in NFL history.
I'm sure it'll get alot of views but I'll have to go with false.
No. Maybe if it was primetime.
I'll say false too. Not enough at stake that early in the season.
But good to see you, Ryan -- I'd be curious to hear your take on the Colt's offseason, rumors from Terre Haute, etc.
i say no, most watched out of all the seasons games maybe, but not in NFL history
I'll play Devils Advocate and say despite the late afternoon start... CBS did the right thing by protecting this game on the schedule. Most watched REGULAR SEASON game in NFL history.
I'll go with 28.7 million viewers. Completely taking out the 21.98 million from last year.
It should be a very interesting game, unless Peyton Manning gets a swelled head over the SB gift.
ooops, too late.
TV market is far more fragmented than it was in the 80s and 90s so ratings wise it won't do as well. However, the '05 game was the most watched game in like 6-7 years or something, did '06 beat that in ratings? I'd guess it did...07 should do pretty big, hopefully both teams will be playing well going into it like last year, unlike '05 when us Pats fans even knew we were about to get a whoopin with the banged up secondary we had....
I would say false... IMO it will be the most watched regular season game of this season if both teams are deep in the race for the AFC's top playoff seed at that point in time.
December 3, 2007. M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore, MD. Monday Night Football.
New England Patriots at Baltimore Ravens.
Be there (I will!!!!)
This is a rivalry that is on par with Yanks-Sox right now. Wait until you see the ratings for the 2007 AFCCG. If it winds up as these 2 teams it will be monumental.
Screw SD. We all know who the best teams in football are.
If I remember correctly, Pats vs. Colts this year is not a national game.
I compare this rivalry with the Cowboys-49er rivalry of the early 1990s at first thought.
I saw the timeslot for the game as 4:15pm... if its not assigned as the Sunday Night game at that point, it would be pretty clear it would be the CBS "Main Event" game of the 4:15pm games scheduled. So do bet the #1 CBS announce team to be there.
False. The way the NFL's broadcasting policy is, there will be parts of the country that won't even get this game. It won't be the only game on at 4PM. Most of the West Coast teams will be playing at 4PM. If CBS, doesn't get the double header that weekend (which I would think they would, but who knows), then most of the country outside of New England and Indy would be watching whatever the marque 4PM game is on Fox.
It could set records in Boston and Indy, but definitely not nationally.
It isn't eligible to be moved to Sunday Night. The game is in week 9. The flexible schedule where games can get pushed to Sunday night doesn't start until week 11.
The league clearly made sure that there was no way that CBS wasn't getting this game. Considering they get screwed every year with this game being a primetime game, I think they deserved to get it once.
Thanks for the clarification.
I'd have to say false. I'm looking at the week 10 matchup in primetime - Indy @ SD. Depending on where everyone's at that game could be pretty heavily viewed.
yeah yeah yeah
I just passed my fan conditioning test!!
not likely....SD has no national following,outside of S California
