NFL Network sets single day NFL Scouting Combine Rating & Viewership records

NFL-CombineHow popular is the NFL at the moment? On Saturday the NFL Network saw its single largest day ever at the NFL Scouting Combine in terms of rating and viewership

  • Saturday, February 22, 2014 (Combine Day #1): .19 US HH & 277k viewers
  • Saturday, February 21, 2015 (Combine Day #2): .35 US HH & 529k viewers

That is an impressive 83% y/y growth in rating and a 91% y/y growth in viewership

One very cool feature this year is a new comparative analytics technology NFL Network is utilizing. In a nutshell, we have all the player info – measurements, times, reps etc – loaded in for every player in the combine since 2003. As players start to be evaluated in this combine, within seconds NFL Network will analyze who each prospect is like in terms of current NFL players.

For all its off field problems, and the bumbling leadership of Commissioner Roger Goodell, fan interest has never been higher for the NFL.
