SNF Faced Game 4 of World Series

Saints 62-7 Victory is Most Lopsided Game in SNF 6-Year History

NEW YORK - October 24, 2011 - Last night's Sunday Night Football game, which saw the Saints defeat the winless Colts, 62-7, was the most lopsided result in the six-year history of SNF. The Saints led the game 21-0 at the end of the first quarter, 34-7 at halftime and 48-7 after three quarters. The 62 points scored by the Saints tied a record for most points scored by any team since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 (Jaguars 62, Dolphins 7 in divisional round of the playoffs on Jan. 15, 2000).

Last night's game registered an 8.2 overnight rating and a 13 share, according to overnight data released today by The Nielsen Company, while competing head-to-head with Game 4 of the World Series (10.1/16). This marks the second straight year that SNF went up against the World Series. In Week 8 last year, the Steelers-Saints game registered an 11.8/18 overnight rating while the World Series drew a 10.4/16.

1. New Orleans, 50.9/66
2. Indianapolis, 27.1/40
3. Norfolk, 12.6/18
4. Baltimore, 12.0/19
5. Richmond, 11.8/16
6. Las Vegas, 11.6/18
7. Atlanta, 11.2/17
8. Albuquerque, 10.9/16
9. Nashville, 10.8/15
