For those not in the know re: the new overtime rules, thatís what weíre here for.

First, letís brush up on the old format that will still be used during the regular season: Itís simple. A coin toss decides who gets the ball, and the first team to score wins. That format leaves the fate of the game in the hands of a coin, since every team who wins the toss will elect to receive, they only have to potentially go 35 yards to set up a game-winning field goal. (Okay, well, almost every team will elect to receive: Iím looking at you Marty Mornhinweg.)

The new rules, which will be adopted for the playoffs only, are a hybrid of the current format and the college setup. Basically, if the team who starts with the ball goes down and scores a touchdown the game is over, but if they only get a field goal the other team has one chance to answer back.

If the team with the ball first has to punt, or there is a turnover, it goes straight to sudden-death. The nice tweak they added gives teams more incentive to score a touchdown, and makes the chance higher that both teams will have the ball.

one more thing......if the team kicking off gets an onside kick, then all they need is a field goal to win. The kickoff recovery is considered a turnover.

I like it better than it was. I still think both teams should get the ball once no matter what.

Yep... if one team scores, the other should get a chance to score. If the defense holds then the game is over.
