The Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots – two of the most polarizing franchises in sports – gave FOX its best television ratings for an NFL game in years on Sunday.
The demise of the NFL has been greatly exaggerated. Green Bay’s last-second win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday was seen by over 48 million people – the most people ever to see an NFL Divisional playoff game.
ESPN, one of the NFL’s broadcast network partners, have quite a ratings disaster on their hands this Saturday when the Houston Texans host the Oakland Raiders in the NFL’s wild card opener.
On the same day that news broke regarding Sunday’s Pittsburgh-Denver thriller being the highest-rated wild-card game since 1994, more Tim Tebow hysteria is abound. Tebow craziness continues to run rampant to the dismay of Charles Barkley but not to singer John Parr.
