NEW YORK (AP) — The Jets’ upset of the rival New England Patriots drew the highest preliminary television rating for a divisional playoff game in 14 years.

New York’s 28-21 win Sunday on CBS earned a 26.2 overnight rating and 44 share. The network said Monday it was the best rating for this round since Dallas-Carolina in January 1997.
