EAGLES-COWBOYS "WIN-AND-IN" NAIL-BITER ON NBC'S "SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL" EASILY WINS NIGHT IN PRIMETIME WITH 16.8/28 OVERNIGHT

Third Consecutive 16.8-or-Higher for Week 17 SNF Ranks As 7th-Highest Sunday NFL Overnight in NBC Primetime History & 3rd Best This Season behind Peyton's Return to Indy & "Manning-Brady XIV"

Strong Season: SNF in '13 Posts 5 of 9 Highest Sunday Primetime Overnights since NBC Acquired Package in '06

Overnight Peaks at 18.0/32 for Exciting Conclusion from 11-11:30 p.m. ET

STAMFORD, Conn. - December 30, 2013 - The Philadelphia Eagles' down-to-the-wire 24-22 victory over the Dallas Cowboys in a "win-and-in" game for the NFC East title last night on NBC's Sunday Night Football posted a 16.8 overnight rating and 28 share (8:30-11:30 p.m. ET) - marking the third consecutive 16.8-or-better for the Week 17 SNF game. The telecast peaked at an 18.0/32 for the exciting conclusion from 11-11:30 p.m. ET.

The 16.8 overnight for the Eagles' two-point Sunday Night Football victory, highlighted by Nick Foles' 263 passing yards and two touchdowns and LeSean McCoy's 131 rushing yards and one scoring catch, is the seventh-highest Sunday overnight in the eight-year history of NBC's primetime package (excluding NFL Kickoff games) and ranks third this season behind Peyton Manning's return to Indianapolis on October 20 (17.3) and "Manning-Brady XIV" on Nov. 24 (17.0).

SNF's 16.8 overnight more than doubled the top regularly-scheduled primetime program (7.4 for 60 Minutes). In the Adults 18-49 demographic, Sunday Night Football easily won the night posting a 10.2 rating (in the 25 markets used to calculate the overnight demo) - 343% better than the top entertainment show in the demo (The Simpsons).

This season, NBC has posted five of the network's nine highest Sunday overnights (not including NFL Kickoff games) since acquiring the Sunday Night Football package in 2006.

Following are NBC's 10 highest overnight ratings for Sunday regular-season games since the debut of Sunday Night Football in 2006 (does not include NFL Kickoff games):
