Tag Archives: NFL playoff games that went into overtime

Today’s Sports Stat: January 13, 2018


There’s a distinct possibility that of the remaining seven NFL playoffs games this season that we will see one (or more) of those games go into overtime. The last NFL playoff game that went into OT was last year’s Super Bowl, a 34-28 win by the New England Patriots over the Atlanta Falcons.

There have been 30 playoff games that went into overtime in the Super Bowl era (since 1966). The Green Bay Packers have played in the most playoff OT games with six… they are followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers with five. The Packers also have the most playoff OT losses with five (no other team has more than three playoff losses).

Here are the NFL franchises with the most playoff OT wins and losses since 1966.

Most playoff OT wins
2-Arizona, Denver, Miami, New England, New York Giants, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Tennessee/Houston

Most playoff OT losses
5-Green Bay

3-Baltimore/Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Seattle

Of the last 10 playoff OT games played, the Packers have been the losing team in four of those games; in fact, the Pack has been on the losing end of five of the last 14 NFL playoff OT contests.
