Vikings take Hall of Fame Game

The NFL is back and on Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers in the annual Hall of Fame Game which drew a remarkable 6.9 share rating, the highest rated program that night and the highest rated Sports program all year.  In comparison, the Stanley Cup Finals Game 6 drew a 6.5, the NBA Eastern Conference Finals drew a 5.6 and Western drew a 5.4.  The Indy 500 drew a measly 4.3.

The Vikings won the contest 14-3 but the Steelers hardly played any starters.  Starters not playing included QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Le’Veon Bell, and receivers Antonio Brown, Martavis  Bryant and Markus Wheaton.
