On Sunday night, I fired up my Roku Ultra and turned on the Eagles game on YouTube TV. Greeting me weren’t the voices of NBC duo Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth, but those of the Spanish-language broadcast. In fact, I wasn’t treated to the former until roughly twelve minutes remained in the fourth quarter. I wondered how much – if at all – the ratings would be affected.

To put it simply, they weren’t:

The highest rated  game in the history of NBC Sunday Night Football (since 2006), and the highest-rated NBC Wild Card game in 25 years since John Elway and the Denver Broncos suffered a 42-24 defeat at the hands of the Los Angeles Raiders.

Top markets after the jump:

As you’d expect, Philly and Chicago represented the top-two viewing markets, but check out #3: New Orleans. Looking ahead to their opponent? Sure. Check out #10: Minneapolis. I’m surprised any of their TVs worked after Week 17.
