The Dallas Cowboys weren't the only big winners in their Thursday-night upset of the New Orleans Saints. So was Fox Sports, which saw the game become the most-watched Thursday-night NFL game in history on any network, according to Deadline.

The key late-season NFC matchup drew a reported 14.6 overnight household rating nationally. The previous Thursday-night record was set in Dec. 2016, when the Cowboys played the Minnesota Vikings on NBC. That game registered a reported household rating of 12.8.

In New Orleans, Thursday's Saints-Cowboys game drew an eye-popping 58.5 overnight rating, the highest in any market for any NFL game this season, according to Michael Mulvihill of Fox Sports. By comparison, the Saints' much-ballyhooed Thanksgiving game against the NFC South division rival Atlanta Falcons registered a 52.3 rating in New Orleans.
