The excitement buzzing from the start of the 2018 NFL season fizzled quickly when the Thursday Night Football matchup between the reigning world champions, the Eagles, and the Falcons was delayed 45 minutes.

This lengthy Weather delay pushed kickoff to 9:05 p.m. ET, and could be the reason for the decrease in viewership which resulted in a 10-year low for NFL kickoff.

Friday, Nbc Sports public relations tried to put a positive spin on the numbers by saying the game posted the best numbers of any sporting event this year with a peak coming just 25 minutes after kickoff.

Weather could play a factor again Sunday when the Browns host the Steelers.
