Last night’s Los Angeles Rams-Kansas City Chiefs Monday Night Football shootout drew an impressive 16.6 million viewers for ESPN, according to Nielsen.

The game, in which the Rams defeated the Chiefs 54-51 in the highest-scoring game in MNF’s 49-year history, was the most watched MNF telecast since the Detroit Lions-Dallas Cowboys game drew 18.6 million viewers in December 2016. 

Further, the game was ESPN’s most watched telecast since this past January’s Georgia-Alabama College Football Playoff National Championship game drew 27 million viewers.

The 16.7 million viewers for the Rams-Chiefs game is up 54% compared to last year’s Atlanta Falcons-Seattle Seahawks game in week 11, which averaged 10.8 million viewers, according to the network.

Overall, ESPN’s Monday Night Football telecasts are up 10% season to date, according to the network.
