For the fourth consecutive year that NBC's "Sunday Night Football" has gone head-to-head against the Emmys, football won. (Last year the Emmys were on NBC.)

Sunday night's Eagles-Falcons tilt averaged 15.7 percent of homes in 56 major markets, compared to 9.4 for the Emmys.

The top two local markets for the game were, not surprisingly, Atlanta (33.6% of homes) and Philly (33.5).
