Tampa BayWatch – My Thoughts on the Bucs

Patriots reach 16-0 – set records on way

with one comment

The ’07 Patriots have written themselves into history alongside the ’72 Dolphins as the only team to go unbeaten through the regular season. As a Bucs fan I have to doff my hat to the achievement, the Bucs have also set records but ours is for a winless season 🙂

During last nights 38-35 victory over the Giants, Tom Brady and Randy Moss also set NFL records. Brady twice connected with Randy Moss for TD’s. The TD’s allowed Brady to set a single season record of 50 TD’s and Moss broke Jerry Rice’s record of 22 TD receptions ending up with 23 TD receptions on the year.

Some have said that the videotaping scandal earlier in the year has tainted this achievement but, to go 16-0 in this age of free agency won’t be repeated soon. The Patriots have only really been pushed in a few games this season, however there sportsmanship was questioned when they ran up the score against the Redskins.The Patriots will now turn their attention to the post season and a game against the winners of the Jacksonville Pittsburgh game.

    The numbers are in and the preliminary ratings indicate the 29 December 2007 game between the Patriots and Giants was the most watched broadcast in U.S. television history.

    Up to this point, the most watched program in U.S. television history was the M*A*S*H series finale: “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen” which aired in 50.15 million households on 28 February, 1983 with a 77% share of the entire viewing audience. The M*A*S*H broadcast had 105.9 million total viewers. Since 2000, the most watched program was Super Bowl XLI Indianapolis Colts vs. Chicago Bears), which had 93.1 million million viewers on 4 February, 2007 .

    Overnight ratings of the Patriots-Giants game show 53.2 million households watched the game. In addition, Nielsen Media Research is reporting overnight viewers totaled more than 107.3 million on the three networks broadcasting the game (NFL Network, NBC, CBS) and an 83% share of the total television viewing audience.

    After weeks of insisting they wouldn’t cave in, NFL officials did just that Wednesday. As a result, all of America saw the Patriots’ make history. Saturday night’s game between New England and the New York Giants on the NFL Network, was also simulcast nationwide on CBS and NBC. It was the first time in NFL history the same game was broadcast on three separate networks at the same time.
