The Baltimore Ravens' overtime victory over Denver on Saturday night drew the highest ratings for an AFC divisional playoff game since 1994.

The preliminary national rating had 20.1 percent of households in the United States tuned into the game, an increase of 9 percent over the Saturday AFC divisional game the previous year between New England and Denver in prime time.

It also was CBS' most watched Saturday divisional playoff game on record since 1987 with 35.5 million viewers.

The ratings peaked at 24 percent between 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. ET, USA Today reported, as the Ravens pulled out a dramatic 38-35 victory over the Broncos in double overtime.

In 1994, the Buffalo Bills-Los Angeles Raiders divisional matchup drew a 22 percent rating on NBC.
