The Superbowl has only gone into overtime once in its history
Mark your calendars for February 27, wings lovers. If Superbowl LVII between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs should be tied at the end of regulation time, Buffalo Wild Wings locations across the country will be giving away free wings a few weeks later.
Superbowl LI in 2017 was the only Superbowl in the game's history to end in a tie and go into overtime. In that game, the New England Patriots scored a touchdown in overtime and beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28.
Buffalo Wild Wings will be giving away free wings if this year's Superbowl in Phoenix ends up in overtime, no matter which team wins. If it happens, customers at all 1,231 Buffalo Wild Wings locations can get six free wings, from 4-7 p.m. on February 27. Customers can choose boneless or traditional wings.
More than 20 games were forced into overtime during this NFL season. New rules this year have also changed how overtime works in the NFL postseason. Both teams now get a chance to have the ball in overtime. If the game is still tied after that, then overtime becomes sudden death. The new rules came about largely due to controversy after the Chiefs beat the Buffalo Bills in overtime during the playoffs last year.
What happens during overtime in this year's Superbowl - if there is one - doesn't matter as far as Buffalo Wild Wings is concerned. Everyone can get free wings if the customers "win" the promo.
