The Average Minute Audience (AMA) for last night's unauthenticated live stream via NBC Sports and NFL Digital platforms was 570,000 viewers - the highest ever for a game in the SNF package - and up 61% from last year's NFL Kickoff Game (355,000).

NBC Sports Digital's live stream of last night's NFL Kickoff game ranks as its most streamed SNF game ever. Fans consumed 108 million live streaming minutes across 2.0 million unique devices, up 31% and 55%, respectively, from last year's NFL Kickoff Game.

Last night's game (9 p.m.-12:04 a.m. ET) registered a national TV household rating of 11.2/23.
