The San Francisco 49ers' 23-20 win over the Green Bay Packers had 47.1 million viewers Sunday on Fox to make it the most-watched wild-card game on record. The previous high was 42.4 million for the 2011 Steelers-Broncos game.
The two Saturday games averaged 30.8 million viewers on NBC, a record for the Saturday wild-card games.
