Power Of Favre: ESPN’s ‘Monday Night Football’ Tops NBC’s ‘Sunday Night Football’
ESPN drew a 12.2 overnight rating for the Jets’ win over the Vikings Monday night, up 22% from Week 5 last year (NYJ/MIA: 10.0). The 12.2 overnight is the highest of the season for Monday Night Football on ESPN.
Vikings/Jets drew a higher overnight than Sunday’s Eagles/49ers game on NBC (11.7), marking the first time this season that Monday Night Football has topped Sunday Night Football.

Worth noting that the SNF game had a Philly audience split between football and baseball, and featured our, sadly, woeful 49ers.
