After breaking a slew of rating records last year, NBC’s Sunday Night Football is showing no signs of slowing down. Last night’s season opener between the Cowboys and Jets drew a 16.9 overnight rating/27 share — the best overnight rating for any Week 1 primetime game on Sunday or Monday night in 15 years (since the Sept. 2, 1996 game between the Cowboys and the Bears on ABC). It was up 3% over last year’s SNF opener and 26% over the 2009 SNF opener. What’s more, the Cowboys-Jets faceoff was the top-rated Sunday Night Football game ever. Fueled by football, NBC dominated Sunday primetime.
