Jets-Colts Nailbiter Headlines NBC’s Record Breaking Wild Card Saturday

Although the 17-16 final may have been a low-scoring one for two high-powered offenses like the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts, the ratings for their Saturday night wild card showdown were off the charts.  NBC’s broadcast of the one-point Jet victory scored a 20.8 overnight rating and a 33 share, marking the best ever number for a primetime wild card Saturday matchup.  This weekend’s Jets-Colts classic was up six percent over last season’s primetime Saturday game between the Eagles and Cowboys (19.6/33) and represented a 14 percent increase over 2009’s Colts-Chargers wild card matchup.
