The primetime matchup between the victorious Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans on Thursday night snared 19.3 million viewers on NBC, Deadline reports. That's a decline of 12.3% from the Green Bay Packers-Chicago Bears opening game of the 2019-2020 season on Sept. 5, 2019. The game was up just a touch over the nine-year low of the weather-delayed 2018 season opener in total sets of eyeballs. Additionally, there were both NBA and NHL playoffs on the air, most noticeably with the Los Angeles Lakers beating the Houston Rockets in NBA action. When data from NBC Sports Digital and NFL Digital platforms are added to Chiefs-Texans, the game had a total audience of 20.3 million. That's an 11% drop from last year, even with the digital numbers up 55% over 2019 to a non-Super Bowl high. The game peaked at 22 million viewers early in the 9:15-9:30 PM (ET) slot.
