Nielsen said the games averaged 17.63 million viewers for the first three weeks of last season, and have dipped to 15.77 million this year. The 2017 figures don’t include this week’s Monday night game between the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals.

The Nielsen figures also don’t include many of the Sunday afternoon games that are shown to a regional audience, but not a national one.
