The game was the highest-rated program of the night in these same categories.

ESPN has won the night on all eight Mondays this MNF season among households and all key male and adult demos (and seven of eight Mondays among viewers).

In Indianapolis, the game delivered a 13.2 rating on ESPN and an 18.1 on WRTV-ABC, for a combined 31.3 rating in the market. In Charlotte, the game delivered a 12.5 rating on ESPN and a 20.1 on WSOC-ABC, for a combined 32.6 rating in the market.

The top 10 metered markets (not including those of the competing teams): Greensboro (20.2), Raleigh-Durham (14.6), New Orleans (13.5), Denver (13.3), Greenville (13.1), Birmingham (12.9), Norfolk (12.6), San Diego (11.8), Albuquerque-Santa Fe (11.2), and Seattle (11.1).

It also had 602,000 unique viewers watching 47,881,000 live minutes - up 43 percent and 57 percent, respectively. The 47,881,000 minutes viewed are the most ever for a MNF game.
