The Regular season is over and the NFL is rolling into the playoffs with low TV ratings for the second-straight year. The average game was watched by 1.6 million fewer people this season compared to last season. This comes after NFL ratings dropped drastically in 2017, losing 9.7% of their viewership. A myriad of reasons could have potentially played a factor in the NFL’s declining ratings including the changing media habits of the public, player safety concerns and issues over player protests. However not all bad news for the league. Even with lower numbers, The NFL still dominates primetime and is still responsible for 20 of the 30 highest-rated broadcasts of the year.
