The Nielsen company said viewership dropped 3 percent from last year's 103.4 million. The Patriots' 13-3 win was a defensive struggle, and a struggle for many casual fans to watch.

The Super Bowl is traditionally the most-watched television event of the year in the U.S., and its audience hasn't dipped below 100 million since 2009. The TV audience has been dwindling since its 2015 peak of 114.4 million.
