Fox averaged 8.7 million viewers for the Green Bay Packers' win over the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football, which was considered a win due to both teams featuring injury and COVID-19 depleted rosters while also competing against ongoing election coverage.

The 49ers and Packers was expected to be a highly anticipated matchup when the schedule was announced, but San Francisco entered the game with a 4-4 record and expected to free fall with injuries to arguably their five best players in George Kittle, Nick Bosa, Jimmy Garoppolo, Deebo Samuel and Raheem Mostert.
