It was also the seventh time (2010, 2011 and 2013) in 12 seasons that New Orleans was the top-rated "Sunday Night Football" market, NBC announced in a press release Tuesday. Milwaukee was the top-rated market in 2017 and 2012, while Denver ranked No. 1 for three consecutive seasons from 2014-16.
New Orleans led the way for the 2021 season with a 20.6 rating and a 32 share. Kansas City was second with a 20.3 rating. No other NFC South teams were in the top 20. The Saints finished the regular season with a 9-8 record, the team's fifth consecutive winning season.
