Once again, the NFL found itself at the top of the Monday cable ratings.

ESPN broadcasted the match between the Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Steelers, picking up a 3.1 rating in adults 18-49 and coasting to the chart’s uppermost slot. Though nothing even remotely approached its score, this did reflect a noticeable decline from the 3.7 ESPN grabbed when the New England Patriots played the New York Jets last week. “Monday Night Kickoff” followed suit in second place, as usual, though it did fall from 2.0 to 1.4. The decrease was less prominent with the third place entry, “SportsCenter 12AM,” which only fell from 1.2 to 1.0.

Further down, USA’s “Monday Night RAW” reclaimed its position above “90 Day Fiancé” in its 8 p.m. hour by holding onto its 0.8. The TLC series slipped from 0.9 to 0.8, costing it the lead over the WWE wrestling series and dropping it to fifth place. On Bravo, “Below Deck” was more consistent with its 0.5, as was “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood.”

Elsewhere, Food Network’s “Halloween Baking Championship” descended from the 0.4 it rose to last week, returning to 0.3. This was mirrored by the trajectory of “Street Outlaws” on Discovery, though “Street Outlaws: Memphis” managed to maintain its 0.3 yet again. VH1’s final entry for the night, “Cartel Crew,” fought its way back from 0.2 to 0.3, landing in the same lane as “Rock the Block” on HGTV. Towards the bottom of the chart, “Outrageous Pumpkins” on Food Network posted a 0.2.
