Super Bowl LII provided yet another example of why Kansas City is a great sports town.
Despite the Chiefs getting bounced out of the first round of the playoffs, K.C. fans stuck around and kept watching football. K.C. was the second-best Pro Bowl market and was tied for the 10th-best Super Bowl market according to Deadline.
Here were the top 10 markets (ratings/percent of TVs watching):
1) Buffalo, 56.4/78
2) Philadelphia, 56.2/81
3) Boston, 55.9/81
4) Minneapolis-St. Paul, 54.9/82
5) Pittsburgh, 54.9/73
6) Norfolk, 53.9/73
7) New Orleans, 53.0/72
8) Providence, 52.5/77
9) Milwaukee, 52.3/73
10) Tie: Seattle, 52.2/79 Kansas City, 52.2/73
There wasn’t much reason for Chiefs fans to actually watch the Super Bowl this year (unless they were still big Nick Foles fans) but K.C. showed up and watched anyway.
If the Super Bowl ratings are big in Kansas City now, one could only imagine what the ratings could be like if the Chiefs actually make the Super Bowl.
