Sunday's NFC wild-card game between the Cowboys and Lions attracted an average audience of 42.3 million and 23.6 percent of homes on Fox. Although that figure was not quite as high as the wild card-record 47.1 million who watched last year's Packers-49ers game, it still was the second-highest viewership on record for an NFC opening-round game. The Cowboys won, 24-20, helped by a controversial officiating decision on which a pass interference flag was waved off. The audience peaked at 48.7 million. More than 43 percent of homes in both the Detroit and Dallas areas tuned in.
