The year was 1974. The first regular season OT game was September 22, 1974 between Pittsburgh and Denver. Ironically, the game ended in a 35-35 tie. That's correct. However, the first overtime game in the NFL occurred during the 1958 NFL Championship Game between the Colts and Giants. The teams were tied at the end of regulation, and since a winner had to be declared, a sudden-death period was added. The Colts won, 23-17, on a 1-yard touchdown run by Alan Ameche. But as the first answer correctly states, overtime didn't become a part of the regular season until 1974.
