Roger Goodell's goal as part of the NFL's celebration of its 100th season was to reach 100 million minutes of volunteerism. That objective was shattered the way the Kansas City Chiefs overcome playoff deficits.

More than 300 million minutes were volunteered in connection with the campaign, which equates to 586 years worth of volunteer time.

Way more than half those minutes, 1.88 million, were performed by NFL teams, players, coaches and cheerleaders, plus league staff members.
