Uber to offer free rides after Super Bowl in losing team's city

New England Patriots fans and Los Angeles Rams fans are gearing up for the Super Bowl and are most likely dialed-in on winning the game, but what if their team loses?

Nothing's worse than being on the losing side of the biggest sporting event of the year -- except if your team loses and you find yourself stranded in tears without a ride home. 

Thankfully, that scenario is unlikely this year. On Super Bowl Sunday, Uber Rewards members in the losing city will be eligible for free rides (up to $50) for 60 minutes after the game ends.
