On Tuesday, the NFL boss voted for a change in the rules for overtime: during the playoffs, each team will get the right to play once.
The overtime rule of the regular season will remain unchanged: if the team that takes the lead in obtaining the ball gets the touchdown, the team will win.
Most members of this vote tend to support some adjustments to the rules of overtime. In the previous playoffs, the chief and Bill were anxious about the score of the whole game, but in the end, the chief guessed the coin in overtime and won the final victory. This also caused many fans’ dissatisfaction with the rules.
If both teams reach the array and score after obtaining the ball right, the rule of sudden death will continue in the subsequent overtime.
According to statistics, since the death of the existing overtime rule in 2012, the data during the regular season are relatively average: 50% of the teams who won the coin guessing won the final victory. But in the 12 playoffs, 7 games were decided in the first ball right, and 10 games were won by the team that won the coin guessing.
