Is Kaepernick's Protest Having An Effect On NFL? Take A Look At Their TV Ratings

Is San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's National Anthem protest having an effect on the NFL as a whole? One big indicator is to take a look at their ratings.


According to the numbers seen on NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk, the answer could be yes. TV ratings for Week One were down across the board for this season compared to the same time last season.

Despite games that normally would have pulled in huge at-home viewer audiences, only one contest in Week One saw a ratings boost — the Giants-Cowboys game.

Meanwhile, critics of Kaepernick's protest have been wondering why the NFL has not condemned his disrespectful actions.
