Pats vs. Colts is highest-rated regular-season game in 20 years



CBS Sports national doubleheader coverage, highlighted by the historic meeting of the undefeated New England Patriots defeating the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, earned the highest-rated Sunday afternoon NFL regular-season game on any network since at least 1987, which is as far back as CBS records go.

The previous highest game was the Dallas-San Francisco game in November of 1996.

The Patriots-Colts ratings went up 52 percent from last year's doubleheader of Denver-Pittsburgh and Cleveland-San Diego
in Week 9.
