Last night's ESPN Monday Night Football game - a dramatic New York Giants' 27-23 come-from-behind road victory over the San Francisco 49ers - earned a 7.4 overnight rating according to Nielsen, based on the metered markets. This is an increase of 19 percent compared to the 6.2 rating for the Dolphins at Panthers week 10 game in 2017.

The game rating peaked from 11-11:15 p.m. ET with an 8.3 rating when Eli Manning led the Giants offense downfield for the go-ahead touchdown and the defense held off the 49ers' final drive.

Local markets:
