With the Browns just finishing their third overtime game this season (in week 5), does anybody know what is the most overtime games played by a single team during a season?

This page seems to have a lot of data on overtime, but seems to miss this particular stat.


The Green Bay Packers were involved in 5 overtime games in 1983.

Using Pro Football Reference's Team Game Finder, the following query I used was: "In a single season, from 1940 to 2018, in the Regular Season, game went to overtime, sorted by most games in season matching criteria."
