Rules Change for Post-Season Overtime!

Rules Change for Post-Season Overtime!


Starting this weekend, there will be new rules for how overtime works! These rules won't apply during the regular season, but add a new level of challenge to win in the post-season.

Here's how it works:

If a team gets a touch down - that's it, game over. But, if the team that wins the coin toss scores with a field goal on the first possession, then that team will kick the ball off to the other team, who now have a chance to score! If the second team gets a field goal, then the game goes into sudden death.

What do you think of the rules change? Will it make the Playoffs more exciting? Will it change how teams play?
