(AP) With Terrell Owens facing his old team, the Hall of Fame game drew the highest preliminary television rating for a preseason NFL game in six years.

The game on NBC on Sunday night between the Bengals and Cowboys earned a 7.6 overnight rating and 13 share.

It was the best preseason rating since an 8.2/13 for a Titans-Cowboys game in 2004 and up 31 percent from a 5.8/10 for last year’s Buffalo-Tennessee Hall of Fame game.
