The game dwarfs the meeting between the Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks from last year, which was in the same time slot. Despite featuring a bigger market in Washington D.C. and Robert Griffin III, that game only earned a 23.7 rating and 39 percent share.
When compared to some of the other television mainstays throughout the weekend, the numbers for the Packers and 49ers are even more astounding.
On Saturday night, the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints brought in a 9.8 rating with a 28 percent share for those ages 18-49, per TV by the Numbers. That night, no other show even hit a 1.0 rating, showcasing the dominance of the NFL.
