Four NFL playoff games last weekend attracted an average of 38.2 TV million viewers, the most ever for the divisional round of the league’s postseason.

Ratings were up 20% from last year and rose 12% from two years ago, the NFL said Tuesday in an email. The league said almost half of households using their televisions during NFL broadcasts were watching the four games.
