NBC’s coverage of last night’s New Orleans Saints 45-28 victory over the Detroit Lions earned a 19.3 overnight rating and a 32 share, the third-best overnight for a Wild Card Saturday game since the 1999 playoff season, according to overnight data released today by The Nielsen Company.

The Lions went from bad to good in three years, which was admirable. Now they will try to go from good to great in one, which might be a lot harder.
