Denver locked in to Broncos win

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- If you hate lines, had to run some errands, wanted to find a deal or two on some of the latest electronics perhaps, Sunday was your day to get that done in the Denver metro area.

Overnight ratings show there weren't a whole lot of folks doing much else other than watching the Denver Broncos' 26-16 victory over the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.

According to KCNC-TV, the CBS affiliate in Denver, the game delivered an 88 share of total households, meaning 88 percent of televisions on during the game were tuned into the conference championship.

That share went to a 92 among all adults 25 to 54. It is not all that big of a surprise given the Broncos' position on the local sports landscape. The team has sold out every game -- either regular season or playoffs -- since the beginning of the 1970 season. That streak, including Sunday’s game, is now 341 regular season games and 359 games overall with the playoffs.
