Usually only one or two game go into overtime during the whole NFL playoffs.
Through Super Bowl XLVI, there has been only one NFL championship game to go into overtime. That was in 1958 when the Baltimore Colts defeated the New York Giants 23-17. Since then there have been many wild card, division, and conference championship playoff games that went to overtime but only one NFL championship game.
No. There have been many playoff games that went into overtime but none of them were scoreless. The lowest scoring playoff game in NFL history was in 1970 between the Lions and the Cowboys with the Cowboys winning 5-0.
Patriots vs stelers
Overtime in the NFL is 15 minutes.
As of December 2010, it is a tie: the Chicago Bears, the Denver Broncos and the Washington Redskins have each won 22 regular season overtime games since the overtime rule was introduced in 1974.
the 1932 Chicago bears had a season with 6 ties
yes there can be a triple overtime but it never happened yet maybe quad overtime
Games that are tied go into overtime. Should a game be tied after overtime, the game stays tied. Thus, ties are not broken after a certain amount of time.
Yes. But only in regular season games. A tie happens after the first overtime has no winner.
The longest game in NFL history was between the Dolphins and Chiefs. The game went for 83 minutes (into double overtime too). The dolphins won by a field goal.
The NFL went to a 16 game schedule in 1978.
Buffalo has played in 4 this year so far.
Based on the 2008 and 2009 season, there were 31 games that went into overtime. One ended in a tie, 23 ended with a field goal, and 7 touchdowns(2 defensive, 5 on a drive). So the answer would be, 21% touchdown/ 3% tie, 76% field goal. All based off stats from the seasons mentioned above.

how many preseason games did the nfl play in 1970
This question depends on the level of play. In the NFL, double overtime can only occur in the playoffs, as games which go scoreless through one overtime in the regular season end in a tie. In college, the second overtime rules are identical to the first, with each team getting a chance to score from the 25-yard line. However, the order in which the teams has the ball is reversed from the first overtime.
