In one of the closer gaps of the year, Fox NFL Sunday only beat CBS' The NFL Today by a count of 2.9 to 2.5. Fox is usually well into the mid-3 range. CBS was also down a tick or two with a lighter Sunday than usual.
Fox (Regional Window)
Fox had a pretty weak regional slate, with not even a real lead game in most markets, perhaps Arizona-Philadelphia. They drew a 10.8 overnight in the regional window, down 20 percent from the similar window last year.
Ironically enough, Buffalo led the way for the Bills home game played in Toronto.

CBS (1 p.m. ET Window)
CBS drew a 12.0 overnight for a regional window featuring New York, New England, Indianapolis and serving as the lead-in to a really popular game. That was CBS' best 1 p.m. ET window since November of 2011. They were up 17 percent from last year's window.

CBS ("America's Game of the Week" Window)
CBS rode Peyton Manning's Broncos and the Chiefs to their highest rating of the season, with a 17.4 overnight. The window (which also featured Bengals-Chargers) was up 13 percent from a Steelers-Ravens-led window in 2012.

NBC (Sunday Night Football)
NBC got knocked quite a bit for sticking with the Giants and Washington on Sunday night, but they still drew a hefty 12.1 rating. That was higher than the number their Thanksgiving night game between the Steelers and Ravens hit (11.8) and only down 10 percent from last season's Eagles-Cowboys game.
|3. New Orleans||19.5/27|
|5. Las Vegas||17.5/27|
