Fans who attended the Cincinnati Bengals game versus the Washington Redskins at Wembley Stadium on Sunday October 30, 2016 enjoyed the first NFL London game to involve Over Time and end in a tie. And they showed tremendous support for the Cincinnati Bengals in the Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge along with the Budweiser message – Give a Damn. Don’t Drive Drunk. Fans who pledged to never drive drunk autographed a responsibility wall and received a free souvenir photo.
The positive contributions made by TEAM are far reaching. Its mission is important to fans and spectators in stadiums, but its message also contributes to responsible conduct in our communities at large. The NFL strongly supports the TEAM program, and we are proud to be a member of the TEAM Coalition.Roger Goodell, Commissioner, National Football League

• In 2015, 10,265 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, an increase of 3.2% from the 9,943 fatalities in 2014.
• Many, if not most of those lives would have been saved if people did not drive when they were impaired by alcohol or if they used sober, designated drivers or if they simply wore their seat belts.
• Statistics and research clearly show that 21-34 year old males are the demographic most likely to be involved in an automobile crash
