Week 14 Wrap: Slight Bump For Broncos/Raiders on NFL Network


The latest edition of “Thursday Night Football” attracted solid numbers on NFL Network.

The Week 14 Broncos/Raiders “Thursday Night Football” game drew a 4.2 U.S. rating and 6.8 million viewers on NFL Network, up 5% in ratings and 3% in viewership from Browns/Steelers last year (4.0, 6.6M), and up 27% and 25%, respectively, from Colts/Titans in 2010 (3.3, 5.4M).

OF the 12 Thursday night games on NFL Network this season, Broncos/Raiders ranks 7th in ratings and 6th in viewership.

With that said, only two of last year’s eight NFL Network games earned better numbers — a testament to how well the network has performed this season.
