FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - With the 24-17 victory over the New York Jets in MetLife Stadium on Sunday afternoon, Tom Brady earned his 187th regular season win, surpassing Brett Favre and Peyton Manning for the most regular season wins in NFL history. The Patriots enjoyed similar success in the local broadcast ratings, as the fixture was the highest-rated program in the Boston market for the past week.
Sunday's broadcast captured a household rating of 32.9, the second-highest household rating of the season behind only the opening night primetime matchup and Super Bowl LI banner celebration, while the market share of 69 was the Patriots' highest market share since Week 8 of last year. In comparison, the 32.9 household rating surpassed last season's Week 6 matchup vs. Cincinnati which featured Tom Brady's return to Gillette Stadium.
The Patriots return home next week for a Super Bowl LI rematch when they host the Atlanta Falcons at Gillette Stadium on Sunday, October 22. The 8:30 p.m. ET kickoff will be televised nationally on NBC's Sunday Night Football with Al Michaels handling play-by-play duties accompanied by color commentary from Cris Collinsworth.
