Fewer people watched this year’s Super Bowl than any other NFL title game since 2007.

Viacom CBS says Super Bowl 55 drew an audience of 96-point-four million to watch the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeat the Kansas City Chiefs 31-to-9.

The last time the audience was that small was when the Indianapolis Colts defeated the Chicago Bears in 2007.

One reason for the smaller audience might have been the lack of drama as the Bucs took control in the second quarter and were not threatened after that.
