Earlier this week we told you the Broncos-Steelers game drew incredible ratings.Now, the NFL released the full viewership numbers, and Tebow’s incredible comeback brought in 42.4 million viewers (via NBC Sports).

That means more people watched the Broncos-Steelers wild card game than ANYTHING else that has aired on television since the Super Bowl on February 6, 2011.

The Broncos-Steelers game beat out all of the other playoff games from last weekend by a longshot:

  • Bengals-Texans: 21.9 million viewers
  • Falcons-Giants: 27.7 million viewers
  • Lions-Saints: 31.8 million viewers.

Oh the power of Tebow.
