The showdown between the Packers and the Falcons won the ratings on Sunday. And why wouldn't it? It was a good game and now the Packers are 5-0!!
The Green Bay Packers-Atlanta Falcons game (in which the undefeated Packers won 25-14) scored a 14.0 overnight rating. (Preliminary total viewers numbers will be available later Monday; national numbers will be released Tuesday.) The ratings were the best week 5 in the past six years. It was up 20 percent from last year's week five game, in which the Philadelphia Eagles faced off to the San Francisco 49ers to an 11.7 rating in the key 18-40 demo (19 household rating), and up 30 percent from 2009's week 5 game, which saw the Colts-Titans rate a 10.8 in the demo and 17 in household.
A 14.0 is nothing to laugh at. That's a pretty boss rating. And the fact that it's up 20% from last year is incredible too!
We wonder how long the Packers can keep up their undefeated record! Maybe… the entire season??
What are the stats on how many times they've been 5-0 at this point, and how many of those resulted in a Super Bowl win??
