Redskins-Cowboys Scores High Ratings

If you were anywhere near a TV or a computer in the past few days, there’s a good chance you heard “Redskins” and “Cowboys” dozens and dozens of times.

After days of hype, the two teams and rivals met on national TV last night for NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” in a game that was turned out to be the NFC East championship. The winner moves on to host a playoff game; the loser goes home.

In case you forgot, the Redskins won 28-18 and will play host to the Seattle Seahawks Sunday at in the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs.

Not surprisingly, the game performed very, very well ratings-wise, according to NBC Sports. Here’s some of their tweets from this morning:

The last time Redskins-Cowboys played in front of such a large audience was Sept. 6, 1993, when the Redskins defeated the defending Super Bowl champion Cowboys 35-16 at RFK Stadium on Monday Night Football.

I’m guessing the Redskins are going to be a primetime attraction come 2013. Stay tuned.

    So millions of people got to see the Redskins beat up on “Americas Team”…. Dallas should no longer be Americas team it should be the Redskins home to the Nations Capital

    I am confident that us Redskins Fans in New York could be heard cheering in Landover, Maryland last night! The Washington Redskins are the Nation’s Team!

    Congratulations to Dan Snyder, Bruce Allen, the Coaching Staff and TEAM Players for having the patience to make this TEAM what it is today…GREAT!

    So funny. The author says “I’m guessing the Redskins are going to be a primetime attraction come 2013. Stay tuned.” Don’t you realize whoever plays the Cowboys in a game like this is going to be the best ratings. Cowboys could have been playing the Eagles or Giants and it would have been the same ratings probably even better. The Cowboys are Americas team and that’s why the high ratings. If the Cowboys weren’t decimated by injuries. They would have easily one this game. I hope you enjoyed the win Redskin fans it will be your last this season. Watch for the ratings next week. I bet you won’t even be the highest rating of the day. One last thing with the way RGIII plays he won’t be playing too much longer can you say Vick or worse yet Vince Young.

    Washington defense is just as banged up or worse then Dallass. Look at the numbers, Texas didnt even hardly support there own team with the low ratings in that area. redskins always has been America’s team and that metor shower was the Dallass star crashing to earth in DC Sunday night.
