Heading into last weekend, there were four teams remaining in the NFL playoffs. The season is getting down to its final weeks and the Jacksonville Jaguars, Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots, and Minnesota Vikings all had a shot at bringing home the Super Bowl.  On Monday, two teams remained after the league treated fans to one thrilling game and one blowout.

Not only do we now know that the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots are the only two teams left with Super Bowl hopes but we now know what the ratings were for the two games played over the weekend.

Spoiler alert: not good.

From Breitbart:

The early game on CBS, between the Patriots and the Jaguars, drew a 27.3 rating. While that’s only down a tenth of a point from the 27.4 rating that the Packers and Falcons drew in that time-slot last year, it’s also the lowest rated early game in the last five years. Bested only by a woeful 2013 early game between the Falcons and 49ers, which drew a 26.1 rating.

The late game numbers from the Vikings and Eagles, did not improve the situation for the NFL. Vikings-Eagles drew a 24.7 rating, a 2.9 percent drop from the 27.6 rating that the Steelers and Patriots drew last year.

It’s also the second lowest rating for a late game since 2009, surpassed only by the “Deflategate” between the Patriots and Colts in 2015.

Can liberals stop pretending that this has nothing to do with the anthem anymore? It’s getting ridiculous. Clearly, the NFL isn’t bringing in the eyeballs that it used to. Sure, they are still doing fine and making a ton of money but they would obviously like to be making more.

A lot of people out there are tired of hearing about the anthem protests but the majority of those people also don’t think kneeling for the anthem is a big deal and it clearly is.

If you’re wondering about what’s going to happen on that front during the Super Bowl here’s the latest.

From Deadline:

If NFL players choose to kneel during the national anthem at Super Bowl LII next month, “they’ll be shown live” on NBC, said the game’s executive producer Fred Gaudelli today at TCA.

That said, Gaudelli doesn’t expect much to happen. “Since Thanksgiving much of that has dissipated,” he said. But if NFL players decided to kneel, the EP says the sportscasters will identify the players, provide a brief reason why they’re kneeling, and “then get on with the game.”

Odds are that no one will kneel during the Super Bowl.

However, if someone does, you can expect that to cause a huge scene.

The Super Bowl doesn’t really matter at this point because the damage has been done.
