According to an ESPN press release, an average ESPN Deportes audience of 157,000 viewers watched the Panthers’ 24-20 win Monday, beating the previous best (Chicago-Dallas in 2012) by more than 30,000 viewers.

In all, the game received a 9.9 U.S. rating, representing an average of 15,772,000 viewers. That is better than MNF’s average 8.5 rating with an average of 13,359,000 viewers.

The game got a combined rating of 37.8 in the Charlotte market, compared with a combined 36.1 rating in the Boston market.
