Sunday's thrilling NFC Divisional matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and the Atlanta Falcons averaged 32.1 million viewers and posted a 19.3/38 fast national rating/share. Sunday's game opened with 21.5 million viewers and grew steadily throughout the broadcast. At 4:00 PM ET, 43.2 million viewers (25.6/46 rating/share) watched the final unbelievable events that included the Seahawks furious comeback, the Falcons field goal-hitting drive and Russell Wilson's intercepted Hail Mary pass to finally end the game to advance to the NFC Championship.

Through three broadcasts, the 2013 NFC PLAYOFFS on FOX are averaging a 19.2/34 with 33.6 million viewers. That's off slightly from last year's record-setting 21.2/39 (36.6 million viewers.) The 2013 postseason ranks as FOX's third most-watched ever behind 2012 and 2011.
