ESPN's "Monday Night Football" Wins the Night among All Key Male and Adult Demos

Broncos-Chargers Delivers 9.6 Rating and 12.8 Million Viewers

Last night's ESPN Monday Night Football game - the Denver Broncos' dramatic 35-24 come-from-behind road victory over the San Diego Chargers, tied for the fourth-biggest regular-season comeback in NFL history - won the night among all programs - broadcast or cable - in all key male and adult demos. As a network, ESPN won the night in all key male demos and adults 18-34 and 18-49.

The game earned a 9.6 household coverage rating (8.2 US), representing an average of 9,421,000 households (12,841,000 viewers - P2+) according to Nielsen. The game peaked between 11:15-11:45 p.m. ET at an 11.6 household coverage rating.

In Denver, the game delivered a 15.2 rating on ESPN and a 21.1 rating on KTVD-IND, for a combined 36.3 rating in the market. In San Diego, the game delivered a 14.0 rating on ESPN and a 21.1 rating on KFMB-CBS, for a combined 35.0 rating in the market. The top-10 rated metered markets (not including primary home team markets): Las Vegas (17.9), New Orleans (16.4), Indianapolis (14.3), Albuquerque, N.M. (13.7), Phoenix (13.0), Birmingham, Ala.
