FRISCO, Tex. -- The Dallas Cowboys are back to winning and they are proving they still have America's Team power in terms of television ratings.
The 31-26 victory over the rival Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving Day was a television ratings bonanza. Fox Sports said Thursday's game averaged 35.1 million viewers, more than any regular-season game in the network's history, which dates to 1994. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tweeted that it was the most-watched regular-season game for any network since the 1995 Thanksgiving Day game between the 9-2 Cowboys and 10-1 Kansas City Chiefs, which drew 35.7 million viewers.
