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.
