Packers-Seahawks had highest ‘TNF’ TV rating in nearly 2 years

The Green Bay Packers travel well, as fans flock to their road games no matter where they play. They also draw a high volume of television viewers.

This can be seen clearly after Thursday night’s game in Seattle against the Seahawks drew the highest overnight rating for “Thursday Night Football” in nearly two years.

This isn’t just a one-night trend, either. As we’ve noted previously, the NFL is far from falling off a cliff in terms of popularity.

In fact, ratings have been up across the board over the course of the season.

Of course, last night’s game was highly competitive throughout and came down to the end before the outcome was decided, which helps keep viewers glued to the tube.
