NFL History Witnesses Highest Viewership Ever for Chiefs-Ravens AFC Championship Game

“Record-Breaking Viewership for Chiefs-Ravens AFC Championship Game on CBS Thanks to Stellar Performances On and Off the Field

The NFL clash between the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, broadcasted on CBS, captivated a massive audience, setting a new record for viewership in an AFC championship game. The network reported an average of over 55 million viewers for the game, surpassing the previous record set in 2011 during the matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Jets.

CBS proudly announced that this broadcast marked its most-watched non-Super Bowl program in three decades, dating back to the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway.

Notably, Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers’ crucial fumble at the goal line late in the game added to the intensity, ultimately resulting in the Chiefs securing a 17-10 victory.

In a parallel late window broadcast, Fox’s airing of the San Francisco 49ers’ thrilling 34-31 comeback against the Detroit Lions earned the title of its highest-rated non-Super Bowl game in twelve years. Fox reported an average of 56.7 million viewers for the NFC championship game, marking the highest since 2012 when the New York Giants triumphed over the 49ers.”
