AFC NORTH – 2017 – Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge

The Baltimore Ravens are this year’s winner of the AFC North Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge, which is a competition between four NFL teams: the Baltimore Ravens, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns. The winner of the Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge was the NFL team with the most total points at the end of the 2017 regular season. Points are earned when fans pledge to be Good Sports – designated drivers – at NFL games and when fans show their support for their favorite NFL team’s responsibility efforts on Facebook. 

In 2017, the AFC North challenge was between all four AFC North teams. Each team had an impressive number of fans pledge to be designated drivers – 25,522 in total. The teams competing will consider the Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge a success when more fans pledge to be responsible in 2018. 

The Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge is proof, once again, that Responsibility Really Does Have Its Rewards!

Rivalry games are those games when any AFC North team hosts another AFC North team. AFC North teams include the Baltimore Ravens, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns.

At these games, special promotions will be in place to encourage fans to pledge to be Bud Light Good Sport designated drivers for their friends and family that day. Each designated driver will help their favorite team earn points in the Bud Light Good Sport Designated Driver Challenge.
