The game Sunday had a 26.1 rating and 46 share, the network said Monday, the highest-rated NFC divisional game since 1997. The rating is the percentage of television households tuned to a program, and the share is the percentage watching a telecast among those homes with TVs on at the time.

Pittsburgh's 18-16 victory over Kansas City, shifted to prime time Sunday night because of bad weather, was seen by 37.4 million people on NBC and its digital platform, including 37.1 million on the network.

Atlanta's 36-20 win over Seattle on Saturday received a 16.2/32 on Fox and was seen by an average of 28.7 million on Fox, down 10 percent from New England's win over Kansas City on CBS in the comparable time period last year.

The Patriots' 34-16 victory over Houston on Saturday night had an 18.2/31 on CBS, which said total viewers were not yet available.
