NEW YORK — The already-big television audiences for the NFL on Sunday afternoons grew even bigger this season.
The NFC package on Fox matched its highest rating in the network’s 20 seasons broadcasting the league, and the AFC package had its best rating since 1994.
The NFC games on Fox averaged a 12.5 rating, equaling the record set in 1995 and up 6 percent from last year. The AFC games on CBS averaged an 11.1 rating, up 4 percent from last season.
Ratings measure the percentage of homes with televisions tuned into a program.
