How many wings do you have to eat to win Philadelphia's famous "Wing Bowl?"

Turns out this year 287 is the magic number. That's how many Jamie "The Bear" McDonald ate to win it on Friday.

McDonald, who is from Granby, Conn., wore a Tom Brady Patriots jersey for part of the competition.

Incidentally, his feat isn't a record. That was set last year by former hot dog eating champion Takeru Kobayashi, who ate 337.
