TV ratings show Kansas City loves watching their Chiefs

Kansas City loves watching their Chiefs.

Sports Business Journal released figures on every team's TV rating in their local markets this year. The Chiefs came in seventh overall with a 36.1 rating in Kansas City. This is actually a decline from last year when they had a 42.9 rating. Last year's Chiefs started 9-0 so the excitement lasted all season. This year's Chiefs started off poorly which probably led to a drop in some of the numbers.

I also wonder if the Kansas City Royals success in September and October factored into the decline (which is something I never thought I would say).

The Green Bay Packers were tops in the local TV ratings with a 45.2. They were followed by the New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos, Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills.
