This year, in a season that has seen more than its fair share of overtime football games, Buffalo Wild Wings is going all in on overtime. In addition to dusting off its iconic “overtime button” and offering free wings for everyone in America if the Big Game goes into overtime, Buffalo Wild Wings is also selling a limited-edition collection of “NF-OT”s that celebrate the fifth anniversary of the 2017 Big Game – the only one that ever went into overtime. The owners of the three “NF-OT”s will also receive free wings for year.
Featuring original overtime-inspired artwork, the three non-fungible tokens were created by New York City street artist JordanNYC. They feature a dueling wideout and corner battling for a completion, two opposing players in a mad scramble for a saucy wing, and a wideout making a leaping catch to send the game into OT. Each “NF-OT” reflects the artist’s signature style of bold colors and mixed media that is inspired by hip-hop culture, film and the street graffiti of the city, and are set apart with Buffalo Wild Wings’ signature black and yellow colors and a hint of animation for dynamic depictions of gridiron greatness.
“We love overtime at Buffalo Wild Wings because it makes more time for the greatest of all times. We’re thrilled to celebrate overtime in a bigger, bolder way this year with our first-ever “NF-OT”s by JordanNYC inspired by overtime and being auctioned on Big Game Sunday,” said Rita Patel, Chief Marketing Officer of Buffalo Wild Wings. “This weekend is a massive day for us. Wings are synonymous with football, and both are synonymous with Buffalo Wild Wings. So purchasers of the NF-OTs will enjoy free wings for a year with the digital artwork while America will get free wings on Feb. 28 through our OT Wager if the game goes to overtime.”
The three “NF-OT”s will be auctioned off for 24 hours on Rarible.com, from 12 pm ET on Sunday, February 13, through 12 pm ET on Monday, February 14. Half of the proceeds will benefit artist JordanNYC, and half will be donated to the Buffalo Wild Wings Foundation, whose mission is to build communities where all kids can thrive, compete and belong to a team. Additionally, Buffalo Wild Wings and JordanNYC have partnered with Aerial, the sustainability platform, to offset the carbon emission from the “NF-OT” drop and auction.
This season is no stranger to overtimes – it’s had 22 overtime games, including one of the wildest finishes to the regular season and instant classics in the playoffs. Five of the last seven years have featured at least one playoff matchup that went to OT – including the Big Game in 2017. If the game on February 13 in Los Angeles is, in fact, tied after regulation, everyone in the U.S. and Canada can redeem six free boneless or traditional wings at Buffalo Wild Wings on February 28 from 4-7 p.m. local time. The offer is available for dine-in and in-person takeout only.**
