PI Finds: Most Overtime Games by One Team

Posted by Neil Paine on December 1, 2010

Today we have an inquiry from PFR reader Jose:

"No one seems to know the answer to this question: What is the record for most OT games in a season by one team?"

Thanks to an upgrade made to the Play Index Team Game Finder by S-R president Sean Forman, we can now use PFR's site tools to answer this question.

Just go to the Team Game Finder, select "Search for Season Games matching criteria," and check the OT radio button at the bottom left-hand side of the finder interface ("Overtime Game"=Yes). Click "Get Results," and here's what you come up with:

Rk Tm Year W L T W-L% Count
1 Carolina Panthers 2003 4 1 0 0.800 5
2 Green Bay Packers 1983 2 3 0 0.400 5
3 Atlanta Falcons 2002 1 2 1 0.375 4
4 Cleveland Browns 1986 3 1 0 0.750 4

This includes regular-season + OT games, but you can select either of those individually as well.
