Lots of Kansas City Chiefs fans watched the Denver Broncos game

Wesley Hitt

Kansas City was ahead of Dallas in the TV ratings for the Broncos-Cowboys game last weekend. Chiefs fans obviously care again.

By roughly 3 p.m. last Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs were wrapping up their Week 5 victory over the Tennessee Titans. The day did not end there for KC Chiefs fans, however. Apparently all of Kansas City is ALL IN on this Chiefs season and stayed around to watch the division rival Denver Broncos game after that.

The Broncos played the Cowboys in Dallas in the late game last Sunday. By now everyone knows the Broncos won that game, 51-48, in what was an instant classic (/Romo'd).

But here's what I find really interesting: Kansas City had a higher rating for that game than Dallas. This according to the Dallas Morning News.

Denver was the No. 1 market with a 42.9 rating. Surprisingly, Dallas-Fort Worth was only No. 3 at 29.9. Kansas City, home of the Bronco's AFC West rival Chiefs, was second at 33.3.

Impressive, KC, impressive.

A rating is a percentage of the total number of TVs in the market that were tuned in. So one percent of all the TVs in Kansas City equals one rating point. A share is how many of the TVs that were on at the time were tuned into that particular channel.
