Cowboys vs. Saints Finishes As Most Watched NFL Game In Thursday Night Football History

“America’s team” isn’t just a mantra.

Whether fans tuned in to watch the Cowboys get embarrassed by who we thought was undoubtably the best team in the NFL, or see the unthinkable happen with a Dallas win, the masses came out to watch Thursday night.

The Cowboys and their stout defense shut down Drew Brees and the Saints high powered offense to a tune of only allowing 10 points, topping New Orleans 13-10 to move their win streak to four games while ending the Saints’ streak at ten.

The game finished with a 14.6 rating, the highest ever for a Thursday night game in NFL history.

The game topped the Vikings-Cardinals Thursday night matchup in 2015 and this year’s Jets-Browns game from earlier this season.
