Patriots fans were all-in in support of Tom Brady in last nights game. According to Sports Business Journal’s John Ourand, the Super Bowl had a 57.6 rating in the Boston market, which was better than the Tampa market. This was larger than all the ratings outside of XLIX against the Seattle Seahawks. Although the ratings were higher than normal, much can be attributed to lack of people going out to parties, watching in bars, or travelling in flocks to the big game itself.
According to @Ourand_SBJ, Super Bowl LV got a 57.6 rating in Boston.
