The popular Twitter account, @nocontextfooty, posted a graphic that compared the viewership of both major sporting events.
Here are some of the best reactions from social media on the graphic post:
According to FIFA, the 2018 World Cup tournament (played in Russia) drew an estimated 3.572 billion viewers. Super Bowl 52 between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots (played in 2018) drew a reported 103.4 million viewers on the NBC broadcast.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar saw France and Argentina go back-and-forth in what will be remembered as one of the greatest championship game in any sport.
Lionel Messi and Argentina jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but Kylian Mbappé rallied the French by tallying two late goals that promptly forced extra time. Messi scored again in extra time, and Mbappé scored on a penalty kick to send the contest to penalty kicks.
Argentina went on to win 4-2 in penalty kicks, winning their first World Cup championship since 1986. France, who won the 2018 World Cup, fell just short of becoming the first nation to win back-to-back World Cup tournaments since Brazil (1958 and 1962).
The 2022 NFL regular season has three weeks left, and then the playoffs will begin on Jan. 14. Super Bowl 57 will be played at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on Feb. 12. The defending champion Rams will miss the playoffs, meaning that the 2004 New England Patriots will continue to stand as the last team to repeat as Super Bowl champions.
