It's not impossible.
During last year’s Super Bowl, Volvo celebrated the more than one million lives saved by the three-point safety belt, an invention by the Swedish company, by promising to give away $1 million worth of cars if a safety happens during the game. We’ll explain what a safety is in American football in just a few moments, but it’s something that didn’t happen during Super Bowl LIV. For this year’s big game, Volvo has a new and twice more generous campaign.
The firm has just announced it will give away up to $2 million worth of cars should a safety be scored during the February 7 game. All you have to do is visit Volvo’s dedicated site for the Volvo Safety Sunday campaign, configure your Volvo of choice, and keep your fingers crossed to see a safety during the game. And to answer your question - yes, that can be any new Volvo in any configuration and trim level and color currently available in the US market.

And what is a safety in American football? For our global readers not familiar with the sport’s little details, a safety occurs when the offensive team loses the ball in their own end-zone. Safeties can be scored in a number of ways, including when a ball carrier is tackled in his own end zone or when a foul is committed. When that happens, it’s called a safety and the defensive team scores two points and wins possession of the ball.

The chances of seeing a safety during the Super Bowl game are not huge but they exist. Only nine safeties have occurred in Super Bowl’s 54-game history thus far and the most recent one came at the start of Super Bowl in 2013. Still, it's surely worth a try.
