Rams-Cowboys drew huge TV rating, made FOX broadcast history
No two teams in the NFL have met more in the playoffs than the Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys. With nine matchups all-time, there’s plenty of history between these two franchises and also some large fan bases.
Saturday night’s battle drew a huge TV rating on FOX, pulling in more than 34 million viewers. According to the network, it’s the most-watched Saturday primetime game ever on FOX, regardless of regular season or postseason.
There’s not a huge sample size when it comes to Saturday primetime games on FOX, but the simple fact that 34 million people tuned in is noteworthy. The Cowboys always draw a big audience considering their fan base, but there were plenty of Rams fans tuning in, too.
Sunday’s game between the Saints and Eagles surpassed Rams-Cowboys with more than 38 million viewers, making it the most-watched broadcast since the Super Bowl.

Kirk Cousins Is Not Better Than Joe Montana. So Let’s Fix Passer Rating. | FiveThirtyEight
According to the NFL’s official passer rating system, the most efficient quarterback in NFL history is Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers, with a lifetime mark of 103.1.1 That makes sense: Rodgers is generally regarded as one of the greatest QBs to ever play the game. But if you scroll further down the list, the results become much harder to explain. In the world of passer rating, Kirk Cousins is better than Joe Montana; Derek Carr and Matt Schaub top Dan Marino; and, after one season, Broadway Sam Darnold is running circles around Broadway Joe Namath.
Passer rating is often criticized as Byzantine (have you seen that formula?), incomplete (it does not include data on rushing plays or sacks) and arbitrary (again, have you looked at the formula?). Yet its biggest shortcoming might be the way it is unmoored from changes in the game itself. Passing has never been more efficient than it was this season, in which the league’s average QB posted a rating of 92.9. That is remarkably high considering that a quarterback who posted a rating of 92.9 would have led all qualified passers in 15 separate seasons from 1950 through 1986. Clearly, the scale needs recalibrating.
