↵↵The National Football League announced today that last Sunday's broadcast of the Washington Redskins-Philadelphia Eagles game was the highest-rated and most-watched TV program in the Washington, D.C., DMA for the week of Sept. 27-Oct. 3. Nationally, the Redskins-Eagles matchup was the most-watched Week 4 Sunday NFL game in history, and the highest-rated Week 4 Sunday game in 14 years.

This is what happens when you combine the rabid Redskins fanbase with a matchup pitting a polarizing figure in Philadelphia against a polarizing figure everywhere, so it's not a huge surprise, but still, DOMINATION!

Ironically, this wasn't even the most-watched game in the D.C. area this season -- the Week 1 game against the Cowboys beat it out.
