Donald Trump takes credit for declining NFL ratings 12.02.16 at 12:18 pm ET

Now that the bruising election is over, President-elect Donald Trump is taking a victory tour through some of the states that handed him the presidency.

Speaking Thursday in Cincinnati, Trump made what might just be an accurate claim: that NFL ratings dove precipitously because of his domination of the election news cycle.

Per USA Today’s For The Win blog:

“One of the announcers from ESPN … Now, they cover football and boxing and everything, right? And he went out and he said, ‘I gotta tell you, that event, last night’ — meaning the election results — ‘was better than any fight, any baseball game, any football game.’

He said, ‘That was the most exciting event I’ve ever seen!’ and it was politics. And then you look at the NFL. Well now they should start recovering. But their ratings were so far down. And you know what the reason was? This. Because this business is tougher than the NFL. The people liked it. Their ratings were down 20 or 21 percent. And it was because of us.”

The numbers support Trump’s claim. Thursday Night Football, for instance, averaged an 8.8 rating during the election cycle, but shot to 14.1 this week when the Cowboys outlasted the Vikings.

On Monday morning, there was a strange post on Jamie Collins’ Instagram account.

Collins posted a meme, which read: I may not be where I need to be, but thank God I’m not where I used to be. He also tagged former Patriots defensive tackle Anthony Johnson, who was signed off the Patriots’ practice squad by the Jets a few weeks back.

The current Browns linebacker was traded by the Patriots to the Browns during the Patriots’ bye week. In four games with the Browns, Collins has 19 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.
