Will NFL Week 9 Odds Improve After Drop In TV Ratings In Week 8 Surrounding Protests And Controversy?

Will NFL Week 9 Odds Improve After Drop In TV Ratings In Week 8 Surrounding Protests And Controversy?

The National Football League continues to battle with furious football lovers as player protests go into their second month, with evaluations for the NFL's flagship Sunday Night Football down a staggering 25 percent from NFL week 7. The NFL was unable to regain its footing after weeks of players opting to "take a knee" throughout the performance of the US national anthem. The ensuing controversy gained nationwide attention when President Trump called for a complete boycott of the NFL before owners and officials need players to endure throughout the 'Star-Spangled Banner.'

As a result, evaluations, ticket purchases, and products sales have shrunk as football fans protest with their wallets. Based on Deadline Hollywood, television viewership for the troubled football institution continued its free fall from prior weeks, with about 1 quarter fewer fans tuning in since the Detroit Lions faced off against the Pittsburgh Steelers. "With that, as the league as well as broadcasters, have been losing score traction and snared in political controversy this past season, Sunday night of Week 8 and that Super Bowl LI re-match watched the New England Patriots blowout that the Atlanta Falcons 23-7", says Deadline Hollywood. Even the World Series Baseball Game dominated Sunday Night Football ratings when the Astros’ 13-12 victory over the Dodgers in 10 innings on Sunday October 29th in Game 5, which attracted roughly 12.8 viewers overnight ratings.

The vast majority of Houston Texans players protested before Sunday's match in Seattle following the game. ESPN, The Magazine reported that owner Bob McNair said, "We can not have the inmates running the prison". Through mid-October, owners had meetings with regard to continuing player demonstrations throughout the national anthem. McNair joined his team Saturday morning and voiced sorrow because of his remark. In addition, he issued a public apology on Friday, prior to playing the Seahawks. As it turned out the Seattle Seahawks won the game 41 to 38.
