The Tennessee Titans won their Week 6 game against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, but the real losers may be ESPN and the NFL, which suffered through the lowest-rated ‘Monday Night Football’ game of the season.

MNF, which is broadcast by ESPN, had been losing viewers throughout the season, but Monday’s 6.1 rating in metered markets was its lowest of the 2017 season, according toDeadline.com. (In other words: 6.1 percent of households in metered markets watched the game on Monday).

That’s a 13 percent dip from the October 9 game, which benefited from a competitive matchup between the rival Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings as well as a slight halftime bump during which the new Star Wars movie’s trailer premiered.
