Tim Tebow vs. Tom Brady Matchup Earns Best NFL TV Ratings of Season

The Denver Broncos and New England Patriots game Sunday earned the best rating of the season and CBS’ best NFL regular season overnight in four years, CNBC’s Darren Rovell tweeted.

The matchup of the star quarterbacks earned a  19.5 overnight rating for CBS, Rovell reports. The game pitted proven NFL veteran, three-time NFL Super Bowl Champion and two-time MVP Tom Brady against the highly polarizing, unconventional and thrilling fourth quarter performer Tim Tebow against each other.

The Broncos led 16-7 early after a strong first quarter but were undone by a trio of second-quarter turnovers. Brady eventually prevailed, silencing the Tebow faithful with a 41-23 Patriots win.

In the process, the Patriots won their sixth consecutive game and clinched a playoff berth in the AFC East. Tebow’s thrilling six-game winning streak was snapped in the loss. The Broncos now sit at 8-6.
