#2 ...Waiting to see the overnight ratings. The most recent guess is at Forbes, and they seem to believe that they will be acceptable - trouble is, they need to be 'record' numbers, even if it's just by a small percentage of points.

Super Bowl Ratings Slip To 8-Year Low As Eagles Score Historic Win

However, for the NFL and broadcasters pummeled with double-digit ratings drops this season, the number that really matters right now is the 47.4/70 in metered market ratings that yesterday’s Super Bowl delivered. Dipping by a slight 3% from the earliest numbers of last year’s Patriots’ 34-28 comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons, Sunday’s game is looking to be the eighth highest-rated Super Bowl ever. With more streaming options than ever this year, last night’s game is up 9% in metered market results compared with when the Patriots and Eagles last clashed in the NFL title game, at Super Bowl XXXIX in 2005.

However, Sunday’s Super Bowl also saw a decline of 5% in metered market results from the last time NBC had the big game on February 1, 2015, when the Patriots faced off against then-champs the Seattle Seahawks. Overall, last night’s game peaked in the high-stakes fourth quarter with a 52.2/74.

All in all, Super Bowl LII is currently the lowest rated since Super Bowl XLIV in 2010, when the New Orleans Saints thrashed the Indianapolis Colts on CBS. That first Super Bowl appearance and win for the Saints garnered a 46.4 in metered market ratings.

#10 TW,

Thank you, ma'am! Myself I was hoping for three places lower - out of the top ten, which meant they would have lost serious coin.

#11 Kaepernick is somewhat talented however, his relationship to an Angela Davis wannabe professor at Berserkley has radicalized him.

Further, since his radicalization, he has become very cancerous in the locker room promoting racial division within the 49ers.

That is why he isn't working. Has nothing to do with his protest. It is his race baiting politics spilling over into the locker room and practice field.
