Female NFL TV Viewership Is Actually Up This Season: Your Coverage Maps For Week 12

Denver hates Simms, has railed about him in comments sections, and even started a petition to keep him off their TV games. But no such luck. He seems to be invulnerable, or the network deaf, or both. And poor play-by-play guy Jim Nantz is collateral damage.
