As the biggest ratings powerhouse on Television, no one expected NFL ratings to fall as they did this season, and many people are scrambling to understand the rationale behind the descent. Not that NFL lines and odds enthusiasts care, but this is an important issue for the league.
NBC’s Sunday Night Football, the NFL’s premier game, experienced a 12% drop in viewership from last year’s numbers. Monday Night Football, which typically reigns on EPSN, also saw a 12% decline in the numbers.
CBS’s First Thursday Night Football game was especially disappointing, with CBS reporting a 26% drop in the ratings. Of course, no one is foolish enough to declare the beginning of the downfall of the NFL.
The NFL Color Rush program has been around since last season. The concept was developed in conjunction with the efforts of Nike.

As far as Nike and the NFL are concerned, though, the program gives teams in the league a chance to honor each franchise. The program also gives teams a way to engage with spirited fans, this along with making Thursday night a far more intriguing experience.
