Pats-Chiefs second-most watched AFC title game in 42 years

Sunday night's game between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs was the second-most watched and rated AFC championship game in 42 years.

The overtime thriller on CBS averaged 53.219 million viewers, just shy of the 54.850 million that viewed Pittsburgh's victory over the New York Jets in 2011. The 27.5 household rating fell short of the 2016 matchup between New England and Denver that had a 29.3 rating.

Sunday's game is also a 22 percent increase over last year's game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots, which averaged 44.145 million.
