Tim Tebow, Meryl Streep, ‘Survivor’ lift CBS

The Sunday ratings reflect the fascination with Tim Tebow, quarterback of the Denver Broncos.

The Broncos lost to New England and Tom Brady, yet the game was a huge winner in the ratings as it ran 34 minutes into prime time.

Early ratings for the 7 p.m. half-hour show that 26.9 million viewers caught the end of the Denver-New England game.

Early ratings show CBS averaged 15.9 million viewers in prime time to NBC’s 11.8 million, a number that’s likely to grow. We’ll have the updated numbers Tuesday morning. San Diego beat Baltimore on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.” Way back were ABC with 4.8 million in prime time, followed by Fox with 4.2 million. CBS edged NBC for leadership in the 18-to-49 age group, according to the early ratings.

Your AFC choices are a NE team with a poor defense, Pittsburgh's QB is now crippled, Baltimore has Dr. Jekyll at QB, and Houston is down to their 9th stringers.

Somebody needs to stop the Chargers before they get hot and get in the playoffs, or they may run this thing and save Norv's job.
And that would be a bad thing?

Aldon Smith, what a pick.

My Sandbox Sim defense is killing it! :D

I like the NFC to win the SB this year. GB or NO.

I wish Schaub were healthy. Would be interesting to see what that team would do in the post season.

I totally agree. I'm sure Houston fans are glad to finally be in the playoffs, but you have to be a little disappointed. I don't know if Schaub could go out there and beat someone like Brady. But if that team was healthy with Schaub/Foster/Johnson, the #1 defense with Mario Williams healthy... that could be an AFC championship team with this playoff lineup.

Well, it is probably better than the Broncos getting in and Martyballing their way to a couple playoff wins. Although that would ensure Tebow was the QB forever.

It's time to get Ben out of there. No need to be a hero.

No shit.

Pittsburgh is going full retard right now.

Wow... Tomlin wants to make sure Ben misses the playoffs. He's getting killed out there -- is it worth it?

I love defenses. I pointed out in a thread (few weeks ago), the Chiefs defense was impressive. Besides the line, love your linebackers. But most impressive NOW, they gave the rest of the teams a road map to beating Rogers & the Packers.

The Giants had scheduled its game at the same time -- So I was able to watch bits & pieces of the Chiefs game.

Question: The Chiefs coverage predominantly in a man-to-man scheme? They looked great yesterday ... thanks

Steelers should have played Batch or Dixon. Roethlisberger just looked awful out there.

Justin Smith is built like a tank. He looks like a monster sitting there next to Steve Young.
