Raiders’ win attracts record TV, streaming audience

The Raiders’ 36-33 overtime victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday was the most-watched regular-season NFL game since 1990, according to CBS Sports.

An estimated 38.5 million people watched the game, a 26-percent increase over last year’s Thanksgiving game in the same time slot.

The game, shown on Paramount+, also was the most-streamed NFL regular-season game ever.

CBS cautioned the numbers “are based upon preliminary data” and the final Nielsen ratings will be available Tuesday.
