This week's "NBC Sunday Night Football" telecast of the Philadelphia Eagles at the New England Patriots scored season-high results for "SNF" in adults 18-49 (8.6/20), total viewers (21.8 million) and other key measures. In adults 18-49, the Eagles-Patriots game tied for the second-highest "NBC Sunday Night Football" rating ever and scored the highest rating since December 10, 2006 (Indianapolis vs. New England).

"NBC Sunday Night Football" is NBC's highest-rated program in 18-49 and total viewers since the Dallas-Seattle NFL Playoff telecast on January 6, 2007. The Eagles-Patriots game led NBC to the highest Sunday average for any network in 18-49 since ABC's February 25 telecast of the Academy Awards.

"NBC Sunday Night Football" was the #1 program of the week in adults 18-49, adults 25-54, adults 18-34 and in all key adult male demographics.
