NFL Owners OK New Playoff Overtime Rules

For as long as most young fans for remember, the NFL’s overtime system has been a head scratcher. The team who wins the coin flip won more often than not and many times one team never even got a chance to handle the ball. That will now change..well, sort of.

Today, the NFL owners voted 28-4 in favor of a proposal which will change the playoff overtime rules. If the team who wins the coin flip scores a field goal, the other team now gets a chance with the ball. If Team A scores a touchdown, game over. Sound fair?

The theory behind the rule change is to force teams go for touchdowns in overtime rather than settling for field goals. Again, this will only apply to playoff games. It seems like a small step in the right direction, but overall, still doesn’t seem fair for most games.
