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. But apart from a couple of incomplete passes and nervous fumbles, nobody made any significant mistakes except the referees." Goodell, who said the game's storylines were simplified to accommodate the process of live television, was pleased that the Vikings and Packers stuck closely to the script.
