According to Emily Thorson, assistant professor of political science, it's difficult to separate non-football issues — such as politics, concussions, cord-cutting and other unknown factors — from the events on the field. As much as we may want a single explanation, the truth is a combination of factors are at play, she says. Thorson was interviewed for the USA Today article "In NFL ratings, good football trumps politics." 10/09/18
