When the Green Bay Packers and Miami Dolphins saw this Sunday’s game flexed out from an early kickoff to a mid-afternoon start, fans probably expected that the game would be the big draw for eyeballs and television viewers around the country. Instead, the contest is overshadowed by a very good divisional matchup in the same time slot on the same network.
Kicking off at the same time is an NFC West battle between the 4-4 Seattle Seahawks and the 8-1 Los Angeles Rams, and given that matchup it’s tough to argue that casual fans would rather see Green Bay-Miami. After all, Russell Wilson, Todd Gurley and Aaron Donald admittedly seems like a sexier matchup than a struggling Aaron Rodgers, Brock Osweiler, and a pair of scuffling teams.
After that big divisional game, the NFC East takes center stage on Sunday night, with a battle for second place in the division drawing eyeballs thanks to one team being the defending Super Bowl champions and the other being the Dallas Cowboys. Yes, NFC East games always get good ratings, and that’s why NBC loves scooping up these contests.
