Another week, another record-breaking television rating for the NFL.
NFL VP of communications Brian McCarthy reports that Sunday’s Jets-Steelers game was the most watched AFC Championship game ever, with an average of 54.8 million viewers. The NFC Championship wasn’t far behind with 51.9 million viewers. (That was up 7% from the early game last year and the best ratings for an early window title game on FOX.)
We suspect this won’t be the last record to fall this season. Packers vs. Steelers is a recipe for huge Super Bowl numbers.
