RTC: Jax tops Denver's ratings

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- So much for those who argue that Jacksonville isn't an NFL town.

The city ranked ninth in Super Bowl television ratings -- one spot ahead of Denver, even though the Broncos were playing in the game, writes the Florida Times-Union's Vito Stellino.

Jacksonville had a 52.0 rating and a 68 share, meaning Nielson estimates more than half of the households in the city were watching the Super Bowl and 68 percent of the households using television were watching the game. Denver had a 51.4 rating and a 63 share.

One reason for the discrepancy is likely that people in Denver turned their TVs off after the game became a rout.

Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars-related content from around the Web in our daily Reading the Coverage feature:

The Jaguars have the worst chance of winning the Super Bowl next season, according to Bovada.lv. The T-U's Ryan O'Halloran writes that the Jaguars' odds are 100-1. Seattle tops the league with 9-2 odds.

Jaguars management, during a luncheon presentation to current and potential corporate sponsors in New York last week, unveiled some artist drawings of EverBank Field with a roof. They titled the presentation "Endless Possibilities" to show that owner Shad Khan thinks outside the box.

I wrote last week about Virginia defensive end Brent Urban being a possible target for the Jaguars. Here's Steve Muench of Scouts Inc. breaking down Urban's game.
