Unsurprisingly, last night’s “Thursday Night Football” games absolutely dominated the cable ratings this week.

The NFL Network’s broadcast of the game between Baltimore and Cincinnati secured the no. 1 spot of the night with a 2.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.02 million viewers. The network’s additional post and pre-game specials grabbed an additional 3 out of the top 5 spots of the night with 2.3 – 0.8s.

Meanwhile, MTV’s “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” was the only non-sports show to sneak into the top 5 with a 0.9, even with what it had scored a week ago. Elsewhere, the season finale of USA’s “Queen of the South” continued the show’s 0.4 streak. On FX, after taking a small hit the week before, “Snowfall” managed to tick back up one-tenth from its previous 0.3 to a 0.4 this time around.

Outside of the top 25, the series finale of USA’s “Shooter” was up one-tenth from a 0.1 to a 0.2 with 785,000 viewers.
