GREEN BAY, WI—At a press conference Monday, NFL officials touted the success of a special live episode of Sunday Night Football, confirming that more than 19 million viewers had tuned in to watch players on the Vikings and Packers play in real time before a live stadium audience. "The live game was a huge success for the NFL, thanks to near-perfect performances by the players, coaches, and announcers," Commissioner Roger Goodell said. "It was a challenge, because we normally have the luxury of using editing and multiple takes to get everything just right.
