NFL extra time guidelines modified: League will permit each groups to own the ball in OT

The NFL house owners’ assembly is a spot the place enterprise will get completed and the facility brokers of the league make selections on the way forward for soccer — and eventually we have now one which is smart. On Tuesday a vote handed that can see each groups get possession of the ball in extra time, however solely within the postseason.

It’s removed from excellent, however will a minimum of keep away from the unsatisfying end we saw to Bills vs. Chiefs in the Divisional Playoff Round the place essentially the most thrilling sport in latest reminiscence was determined by a lackluster, unfair ultimate coin toss.

There are nonetheless quite a lot of questions that stay about this rule change. It’s unclear what occurs after every crew has a possession. There’s been no formal announcement whether or not we might transfer to “subsequent rating wins,” or if each groups would proceed to get possessions.

How that is determined will open up some actually fascinating resolution making within the playoffs. If we assume the sport strikes to subsequent rating wins, then the primary crew to realize possession will naturally have a bonus. There’s additionally a chance the place the primary possession crew must make a troublesome resolution about whether or not to go for 2 on their first drive, making certain their opponent must match them — or just take the PAT, understanding if they provide up a TD the sport may very well be sealed by a two level conversion.

Time will present the complete plan the NFL in instituting, however a minimum of this can be a step in the fitting path.
