NEW YORK � Sept. 25, 2006 � NBC's "Sunday Night Football" Broncos-Patriots matchup averaged 15.6 million viewers, up 15 percent from last year's third "Monday Night Football" game (13.6 million, Kansas City-Denver on 9/26/05), according to fast national data from Nielsen Media Research.

Last night's game drew 39 million total, unduplicated viewers, 15 percent better than the Week Three game on ABC "MNF" last year (34 million).

After four games, "NBC Sunday Night Football" is averaging a 12.2/20, 10 percent higher than ABC "MNF" after four games in 2005 (11.1/19, averages include Thursday night season openers).

"NBC Sunday Night Football" (8:15-11:11 p.m. ET) rated 35 percent higher than NBC's 8:30-11 p.m. household rating for the same night last year, featuring the season premieres of "The West Wing," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and "Crossing Jordan" (7.4), 90 percent higher in Adults 18-49 (6.1 vs. 3.2) and 38 percent higher in viewers (11.3 million).
