Packers At Eagles Was Most Watched Week 1 Game Ever

The Eagles vs Packers week one bodybag game that saw each team lose two starters for the season, ended up as the most watched week one game of all time. This from the NFL.

The FOX national game (mostly Packers-Eagles) was the most-watched Week 1 Sunday game on record with 28 million viewers, surpassing the previous high set last year (25.1 million viewers for Washington at NY Giants on FOX) (Nielsen average viewer records date back to 1987). FOX also had its most-watched Kickoff Weekend doubleheader ever.
