The Kansas City Chiefs are officially an international sensation after beating the Miami Dolphins in Frankfurt, Germany during Week 9 action. The team, led by its defense, showed signs of new life after taking its second loss of the 2023 season against the Denver Broncos a week earlier, and Kansas City seems to be trending up heading into its bye week.
Fans tuned in for the matchup against Miami in incredible numbers, according to John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal.
Yesterday morning’s Chiefs game posted an incredible 94 share in Kansas City.
That means that 94% of the TVs in use were tuned to the Chiefs-Dolphins game.

No less than 94 percent of all TVs in the Kansas City area were tuned in to watch the Chiefs take down Tyreek Hill, meaning that nearly every fan with a television in Western Missouri was watching the international matchup unfold in real-time.
Few things can unite people like good football, and when Kansas City plays in a special time slot, the sheer scale of the crowd watching from home is truly mind-boggling.
