This number was up from the 21.6 million who watched ESPN’s Wild Card game last year.The Pittsburgh Steelers madcap last minute 18 to 16 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night was watched by 31.2 million viewers on CBS, up from 28.3 million last year.The Minnesota Vikings’ heartbreaking 10 to 9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on NBC Sunday was watched by 35.3 million viewers, up from 28 million.The Green Bay Packers’ 35 to 18 win over the Washington Redskins on Fox Sunday evening led the weekend, bringing in an average viewership of 38.8 million.Ironically, that was the lone game to fall in viewership with last year’s Fox Wild Card game bringing in a near historic 42.3 million viewers.These numbers show why networks are clamoring to get into the NFL business. The league is one of the lone TV broadcasts to bring in growing powerhouse ratings at a time when the TV landscape comes with hundreds of options for viewers.On top of that, the games had huge viewership while discussions about player’s safety in the league are becoming more rampant.
