NEW YORK (AP) - San Francisco's victory over Green Bay was the highest-rated and most-watched telecast of any kind since the Academy Awards in February, leading Fox to its best NFL opening week ever.
Sunday's game earned a 16.6 rating and was watched by 28.5 million viewers, the network says Tuesday.
The Philadelphia Eagles' victory over Washington earned an 11.6 overnight rating, the highest for a Monday Night Football opener on ESPN.
