The world's Longest NFL game


THE WORLD'S LONGEST NFL GAME
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's longest NFL game?

Christmas day 1971 in the AFC divisional playoff, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Miami Dolphins have visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads, as do the fans in attendance. In fact everyone does except Kansas City residents where the game is blacked out.

With the turkeys in the oven, the idea of a nice warm hot meal for those in attendance would slowly fade to be replaced by Turkey sandwich leftovers.

With just 35 seconds left in the game Chiefs' kicker Jan Stenerud missed the game winning field goal and the stage was set for the world's longest NFL game as regulation time ended in a 24 - 24 tie.

The first overtime ended scoreless, the only winners might have been a few turkeys not yet cooked.

Finally in the sixth quarter Dolphins’ kicker Garo Yepremian put it between the uprights from 37 yards giving the Dolphins a 27 - 24 victory and a faint hope of Christmas dinner.

Final game time: 82 minutes 40 seconds.
