That was a slight eight percent decline from the same spot last week, but still very strong compared to the rest of the viewing options.

Once again, we have another week of the NFL just dominating everything else on TV. Even when it’s a lopsided game, people still care enough to tune in.

Think about that for a second. There was no doubt the Chiefs would win, and the game was still viewed by 14.53 million people on average.

Of course, Patrick Mahomes is pretty much required viewing for NFL fans at this point. That man is a magician on the field.

Either way, the Chiefs putting up huge ratings is just the latest sign the NFL has had a hell of year. With one week left, I expect big ratings through the end of the season!
