Heated, controversial debate couldn’t tear Packers fans away from game at Lambeau vs. Giants

GREEN BAY — Even the most heated and controversial debate between the presidential candidates Sunday night, October 9th couldn’t tear Green Bay Packers fans away from the team’s game against the New York Giants at Lambeau Field.

In the Milwaukee area, the Packers audience was similar to the Sunday night game in week two vs. the Minnesota Vikings — with an average audience of about 390,000 households.

Meanwhile, the debate attracted an average audience of about 239,000 households.

That’s compared to about 420,000 for the first debate.
