The NFL battled itself this weekend with CBS' coverage of Sunday games challenging NBC's prime time Sunday Night Football coverage. CBS was the winner, posting ratings for its late game that were significantly higher than those of the same week last season. But NBC didn't do terribly, either, turning in ratings that at least improved over last week's. In any case, the upward trend continues for NFL ratings despite Donald Trump's calls for a boycott of the league.

CBS had true bragging rights on Sunday. Though its coverage of the Dallas’ win over Kansas City barely made its way into primetime, it was by far the biggest football game of the day — besting NBC's Sunday Night Football (Oakland and Miami) by nearly 50 percent.
Final: The @raiders get a win on the road!
