CBS had a big night Sunday, aided by the NFL runover of the Broncos-Chiefs nail-biter, the 100th episode of "The Good Wife" and the follow-up episode to "The Mentalist's" Red John reveal.

NBC also had a good night with the Sunday Night Football match-up of New York and Washington. It was not, however, as big as last week's face off between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.

The Eye won the evening with an average of 15.97 million viewers and a 9.7 rating/15 share in households. The Peacock was second with 12.6 million and a 7.7/12. ABC trailed with 6.6 million and a 4.1/6 and FOX was last with 3.35 million and a 2.0/3.

The 18-49 demo was reversed for the top spots and bottom two spots -- NBC won with 4.4, CBS was second with 3.7. FOX was third with 1.5 and ABC was last with 1.3.
