Eagles-Chiefs is the most-watched game of the 2023 NFL season, the biggest MNF draw in 27 years

Last season’s Super Bowl rematch drew a massive audience, as 29.02 million viewers watched the Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Kansas City Chiefs on “Monday Night Football.” Here’s what you need to know:

It was the most-watched game of the season on any network and the most-watched “Monday Night Football” game of the ESPN era, which began in 2006.

It was also the largest audience for a Monday night regular season game since 31.45 million viewers saw the Dallas Cowboys defeat the Green Bay Packers in November 1996.

The Chiefs (7-3) and Eagles (9-1) are tied as favorites to win Super Bowl LVIII with the San Francisco 49ers (7-3), according to the latest BetMGM odds.

What do the numbers mean?

“Monday Night Football” play-by-play broadcaster Joe Buck said last week that the Eagles-Chiefs game was probably the biggest regular-season game he and partner Troy Aikman had been assigned to during their 22 years of calling NFL games together. Buck bosses knew this would be the most-watched game of the regular season on their schedule — at least based on paper — but that number exceeds anyone’s wildest expectations.

The audience on ABC alone was 15.
