Lots of talk going on about a potential revision of the NFL overtime rules, with the idea of each team getting the ball once a real possibility.
Although three quarters of games in the overtime era have ended after just one possession, I'm okay with sudden death. Heck, ties never bothered me in the first place, and I never saw any need for regular-season overtime in the first place.
The main proposal to be considered when the Competition Committee meets later this month involves each team getting the ball once, unless the first team gets a touchdown. If the first team scores a field goal, the game would continue. And if Team B ties it, the next team that scores would win.
The change would only be made for the playoffs, which is something I'm also against. If you're going to alter the rules, make it consistent for the whole season.
I want to know what you guys think of the current sudden death overtime rules and whether they need changing at all. As I said, I'm not a tinkerer by nature. But you might be. How would you like to see the rule?
Giants’ fans have a lot to be thankful for
