TV ratings: NBC wins with Patriots vs. Falcons against premieres

Ratings numbers for "Breaking Bad" aren't out yet, so we'll have to wait and see if Sunday night's finale of the popular series reaches or tops the 8 million viewers that were expected to tune in. 

On the major networks, NBC easily won the night with NFL football. During prime time, an average of 18.5 million people watched the New England Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons 30-23, according to early numbers from Nielsen, which are tentative for live sports.

The telecast generated a rating of 6.7 in the key age 18-49 demographic, down 3% from the preliminary numbers from last week's NFL game on NBC.
