Former President Bill Clinton's speech at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night drew more viewers than the NFL season opener, according to ratings from Nielsen.
The NFL game on NBC garnered an average of 19.8 million viewers compared to the Democratic National Convention, which was watched by an average of 25.1 million viewers, from 10 to 11:30 p.m. ET across seven networks.

Where's your link? According to the actual ratings sites, the game got higher ratings than the DNC. The only way to juggle the numbers so that the DNC comes out ahead of the NFL is if you take the game out and compare the DNC to the pre-game show.
