The Patriots tweeted out the following on Friday: "Tremendous support from #PatriotsNation last night! Pats game did a 13.5 rating w/a 23 share - even up against the Olympics! (11.1 rating w/a 21 share).

The numbers reflect the widespread interest in the team, even for a preseason game.

As a point of comparison, I was also curious how it stacked up against the Red Sox-Indians game on Thursday. Turns out Sox-Indians earned a 3.9 rating and a 4 share.

Summing it up, the Patriots ended up winning on and off the field on Thursday.
