The epic bout between the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills generated a massive audience.

Kansas City's dramatic overtime victory averaged 42.7 million viewers on CBS, making it the NFL's most-watched divisional-round game since Dallas Cowboys-Green Bay Packers in January 2017 (48.5 million), the network announced Tuesday.

The audience peaked at 51.7 million viewers, the second straight week CBS topped the 50-million viewer mark for an NFL game after the wild-card tilt between the Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers.

Kansas City and Buffalo put on a show Sunday with a remarkable back-and-forth between both offenses. The teams combined for 25 points in the last two minutes of regulation and overtime.

The Chiefs ultimately edged the Bills 42-36 after Patrick Mahomes found Travis Kelce in the end zone for a walk-off touchdown in overtime.
