The Buffalo Bills’ 10-3 loss to Jacksonville Sunday in a NFL wild-card playoff game made ratings history.
It had the season’s highest TV rating and approached Super Bowl-type numbers.
The game had a 51.1 rating and a 77 share on WIVB-TV (Channel 4), the local CBS affiliate. It peaked with a 54.7 rating near game’s end at 4 p.m.
That means 51.1 TV households in Western New York were tuned into the game and 77 percent of households watching anything on TV at the time were watching the tension-filled, ugly game.
It is likely the highest-rated Bills game in history.
