CBS, Fox Will Air National Anthem Live Ahead of NFL Games Sunday

Overnight ratings for the telecast fell to a 11.6 rating for the game where the New York Giants defeated the Oakland Raiders.

You can thank President Donald Trump for that. "Bad ratings!" Trump tweeted on September 24. That's also down from the first two games of the season, last week's Falcons vs. Packers game and September 10's Giants at Dallas game. Or the games are getting slower with replays. Now the leader of the country is telling citizens directly to stop watching football.

"It's not that they're protesting", he said. Breaking tradition, the National Anthem aired during the broadcast. But it is far more likely that whatever Trump attempted to spur did not play a major factor in last night's incremental, predicable ratings drop. The network's regional football coverage at 1 p.m. was up 11 percent, though its afternoon national game coverage was basically flat.

The president tweeted Monday morning that "the issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. National Football League must respect this!" Amid cheers and boos from fans at FedEx Field in Maryland last night, the third week of the SNF season declined 10% from early numbers of the comparable game of previous year on September 25, 2016. They then went to NFL insider Jay Glazer to get a "sense of the tone around the league".

Conservatives are celebrating the overnight ratings decline of NBC's Sunday Night Football, but a look inside the numbers reveals that ratings were down because the game was lopsided, and not related to the anthem protest. Meanwhile, the Cardinals are still dealing with life without David Johnson leading their rushing attack for the time-being, and it'll be interesting to see if they can outdo Elliott in their own running game on Monday night.

Patriots players take a knee during the national anthem. Standing with locked arms is good, kneeling is not acceptable. Several teams stayed in the locker room during the anthem. "That's part of what makes America great". The NFL is trying to send a message, and it's hoping President Trump will see it.
