The game also earned an average national household rating/share of 12.9/24, also up two percent from the 12.7/22 for the Steelers and Ravens game, which is the previously most-watched and highest-rated TNF game since the Broncos-Chiefs game.
The game winning touchdown by Bradley Roby’s helped the Bronco’s victory against the Chiefs, and linebacker Von Miller could not have been more excited for the cornerback. The final score was 31- 24 in favor of the Broncos, making this their seventh straight win over their AFC West rivals.
Quarterback Peyton Manning said, “I’ll tell you, their defense is so much better than last year. They’re so stout against the run. They just make it hard all night. We just kept plugging.”
