Ties are relatively rare (first since 2008) but they are very anti-climatic. I think games should go on until one team wins.

What say you?

Players Union would be against it, presumably.

The game would have been too long.

And since its rare, it isn't that big of a deal.

I think they've very climactic. The final few minutes in overtime are always a special kind of crazy.

Nope. If you cant win a game by the conclusion of overtime you probably dont deserve to win.

Yes. Abolish it and make all 53 players for each team brawl. Last man standing wins, but of course there's no punching or any physical contact, it's all "ghost" brawling, because actual brawling is against player safety!

No. You can't let a game go on too long or it becomes a big injury issue and will negatively affect the teams' ability to play their next games. You have to draw the line somewhere, and I think 15 minutes is plenty.

This. Even this game had a bunch of crazy things (near TD called back, missed easy FG, made FG called back to delay of game) to even lead to a tie.

Yea, ties are fun. I was rooting for a tie, I always do when a game goes to overtime and I don't really care who wins..

Both teams had multiple chances to win the game. They didn't so why do they deserve any more chances? Win the game in the time allowed or deal with a tie.

I don't know. I'd say they should focus on getting better refs before they try making changes to the rules.
