The National Football League has canceled this year’s final "Sunday Night Football" game for the first time since 1977.

The NFL is blaming the cancellation on New Year’s Eve, citing its history as a low ratings day, according to a CNN report

The last time the NFL held a Sunday night football game on New Year's Eve was in 2006, when the Chicago Bears hosted the Green Bay Packers. It was expected to be quarterback Brett Favre's last game with the Packers (and widely expected to be his last game ever). Still, only 13.4 million people watched that game, about a quarter fewer than the average Sunday Night Football game that season.
