Saints News, 2/3/14: Super Bowl Ratings Slightly Down From Previous Year

New, comments

The viewing audience was probably as large as ever when the game started but gradually decreased as it became more and more obvious that this was not going to be a competitive match-up. As much as I dislike the Seahawks, there can be no doubt after that rout that they were the best team this year.
