The NFL season kicked off with a bang, and according to the National Football League, received over 60 million interactions on Facebook alone.

Buzz was measured across 30 million users starting with the Baltimore Ravens versus Denver Broncos game on Thursday, and ended Monday, September 9.

While Facebook users talked a lot of football, TV saw almost record breaking numbers on Thursday evening with 25.1 million people tuning into watch the Ravens versus Broncos.

On Sunday night, the Dallas Cowboys versus New York Giants drew 18.7 million viewers, and the Washington Redskins versus Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night drew around nine million viewers.

Also helping to kick off the NFL season was Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.

During the game against the Ravens, Peyton threw seven touchdown passes, becoming the sixth player in NFL history to do so in one game, and provided inspiration for an Internet meme.
