It’s a shame millions of Americans boycotted the broadcast considering who little she was on the screen

Add that to a hundred million or so who would have preferred an hour and 54 seconds of screen time and you’ve got more than a few dissatisfied customers.

I think the value of the knowledge of how they approach fourth downs is greater than all of that.

For instance, what would have KC done on the fourth and short deep in their territory had they had the ball first?

Can't play for a hypothetical series that may never happen.  That's insane.

Normally id agree with you.  Purdy going against the KC defense, i think at least opens it up to debate. There's just no way that Purdy would be able to outscore Mahomes on the first drive. Signed sealed delivered ;D

I do know, Newsie is right on you knowing ball.

Has to cost the NFL billions on their next TV deal
Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?

From Yahoo Sports:

There are lots of great Patrick Mahomes stats that help contextualize his greatness. This is my new favorite.

Since 2001, 56 QBs have led 125 drives in the NFL playoffs where it was the fourth quarter or overtime, there was under a minute to play, and the offensive team was either tied or trailed by 7 points or fewer at the start.

‌Of those 125 drives, only 40% saw the offensive team either tie the game or take the lead. Great QBs tend to have better success rates than average; Tom Brady, for instance, went 5-for-11 (46%), while Drew Brees went 3-for-6 (50%) and Aaron Rodgers was 3-for-4 (75%).

‌Then there's Patrick Mahomes, who is 7-for-7 (100%) in those situations — including both the game-tying drive at the end of regulation and the game-winning drive in overtime on Sunday night.

Yahoo Sports on the Taylor Swift Effect:

Super Bowl viewership was up 24% among females ages 18-24 and up 11% among females ages 12-17. Women also represented 47.5% of the total audience, an all-time high.
