The Bills-Titans Hall of Fame game pulled a pretty good rating on NBC Sunday night.

According to Sports Business Daily, NBC earned a 5.8/10 overnight Nielsen rating for its coverage of the Titans-Bills Pro Football Hall of Fame Game.

That’s a 7.4% increase from the 5.4/9 from last year’s Colts-Redskins matchup, and marks NBC’s highest-rated Hall of Fame Game since reacquiring NFL rights prior to the ’06 season. The game also gave NBC the win for the night in primetime.

This year’s game earned an 18.0/28 in Buffalo, as the Queen City is typically one of the strongest television viewing NFL markets in the country.
