Not even a watermelon in the face could knock off NBC’s Sunday Night Football as primetime king on Sunday evenings.

The Miami-NY Jets game earned a 13.0 overnight and a 21 share, defeating a slew of network season premieres, including The Amazing Race, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and Family Guy.
