[Ed. – Note: file image above — not from Monday night game.  The carnage continues.  For those who haven’t heard, Thursday Night Football is leaving CBS for NBC.  That shift will start on Nov 9.  With the World Series still unsettled this week, TNF is only on the NFL Network.]

With a 7.2 in metered market results, last night’s MNF was down 9% from last week’s Philadelphia Eagles’ 34-24 triumph over the Washington Redskins.

While not the season low of the October 16 battle between the Tennessee Titans and the Indianapolis Colts, last night’s Chiefs vs. Broncos match-up is very close to the previous MNF season low of the October 9 Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears games. …

Year-to-year, last night’s Week 8 game was dead even with the Week 8 game of the 2016/2017 season when the Vikings and Bears pulled in a 7.2 MM rating in their October 31, 2016 match-up.
