Ratings for last weekend's Patriots-Ravens game were down 31% from last year's Week 10 game, making it the season's least-watched Sunday game.

According to Sports Media Watch, ratings have dropped for all 11 NFL games on NBC this season. Even though ESPN's Monday Night Football averaged 11.45 million viewers, it was still down 28% over last season.

On the other hand, the Buccaneers-Panthers game earned Fox 18.24 million viewers on Sunday, becoming the most-watched game since 2016. However, Fox lost 20% percent and 13% respectively during the Seahawks-Rams and Bengals-Steelers games.

CBS was down 35% with the Bills-Cardinals game.

Football still continues to entertain more viewers than other TV fares, but most games continue to fall from last year's numbers.
