The four games averaged 38.2 TV and digital viewers, up 20% over last year and the best ever for the league's divisional round of playoffs, the Nielsen company said on Tuesday.

What channel is Jets vs. Bills on today? Time, TV schedule for NFL Week 18 game

  What channel is Jets vs. Bills on today? Time, TV schedule for NFL Week 18 game Here's a complete guide to watching the Jets vs. Bills game on Sunday, including kickoff time, TV channels and a full Week 18 NFL schedule.The Bills looked close to a collapse against the Falcons last week, but they didn’t allow a point in the second half and won handily 29-15. Now, the task is simple. Win and get a home game in the playoffs. When hosting at Orchard Park, that’s invaluable, particularly in January when the confines are significantly less than friendly.

Similarly, the Los Angeles Rams-Tampa Bay Buccaneers game averaged 40 million viewers, but after Tom Brady helped the Bucs back from a 27-3 deficit to a tie, the audience jumped to 49.2 million people.

In the fourth quarter, the Bills-Chiefs game had a 90 audience share in Kansas City — meaning 90% of televisions on at the time were tuned in to the game, Nielsen said. That's an astonishing figure at a time of audience fragmentation. In Buffalo, the share was 86 at the same time.

Blessed with the weekend's best game, and in the evening, CBS won the week, averaging 10.4 million viewers in prime time. Fox had 7.9 million, ABC had 4.1 million, NBC had 3.1 million, Univision had 1.5 million, Ion Television had 1.1 million and Telemundo had 940,000.

Fox News Channel led the cable networks with an average of 2.38 million viewers in prime time. ESPN had 1.85 million, MSNBC had 1.15 million, HGTV had 1.13 million and Hallmark had 951,000.

Titans hope third time is charm as top seed in AFC playoffs

  Titans hope third time is charm as top seed in AFC playoffs No team ever needed a first-round bye in the playoffs more than the Tennessee Titans, who used a record 91 players this season, most ever in a non-strike season. The Titans (12-5) edged perennial power Kansas City (12-5) for the top seed and the lone bye in the AFC playoffs. The week off also gives running back Derrick Henry, the 2020 AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year, more time to practice for an expected return for the divisional round. He broke his right foot and underwent surgery more than two months ago and started practicing with the Titans this month.

Nielsen did not immediately post averages for the evening newscasts.

For the week of Jan. 17-23, the top 20 broadcasts in prime time, their networks and viewerships:

1. NFL Playoffs: Buffalo at Kansas City, CBS, 42.74 million.

2. NFL Playoffs: San Francisco at Green Bay, Fox, 36.92 million.
