After a Thanksgiving break last week, the NFL Network’s coverage of “Thursday Night Football” returned on top of the cable ratings once again this week, with the Dallas vs Minnesota game scoring a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49. This was four tenths higher than the last 1.3 rating the network brought in, which has decreased drastically since “Thursday Night Football” began being broadcast on NBC as well.

Keeping in line with previous weeks, the network’s pre and post-game specials followed closely behind with two consistent 0.9s. Meanwhile, TNT’s broadcast of the Golden State vs Houston NBA game raked in a 0.7.
