The Cowboys moved their record to an astounding 11-1 Thursday Night, and the only people who are happier than Dallas fans, is the NFL.
The league has been trying to pull itself out of a ratings hole, and the Cowboys being not only relevant, but the best team in the NFL, seems to be doing the trick.
The area struggling the most was Thursday Night Football, and a rare intriguing matchup between the rolling Dallas Cowboys and the Viking who though dashed of the level they were playing at earlier this season, are vying for a playoff spot.
Despite a relatively sloppy game that ended 17-15, Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and company drew 21.8 million viewers to NBC on Thursday, making it the most in the decade-long history of Thursday Night Football.

Now if only “America’s Team” could be available for every Thursday night.
