It has been reported that ratings for opening night were down.
They are not really down people are watching on line
The politics attached to the game
Declining interest in sports
No pre season
I did not watch. Reason none of the above.I have been watching Sunday afternoon football since the late 1950's.I have no interest in evening football and will not change my usual routine unless the giants are playing or (God willing there is a game that affects their playoff chances). Boo to Thursday night football.
