^I was just going to post this. I say keep the overtime rules as is but in case of a tie at the end of OT regulation, they should go to the college rules and put them in FG range.

A tie is pointless. No one wants to see a game end in that result.


I wouldn't be opposed to this. The only addition I would make is that stats compiled in ot don't count toward season totals.

why? They're still playing football. Who cares if a guys stats get boosted because of one overtime game?

There is a middle ground someone should talk about...

How about we just add a second overtime?

Football is a really physical sport, that's why they only play 1 game a week, occasionally 2 because of Thursday night games. Sometimes there are gonna be really sloppy games where no one wins, and the last thing these guys need is to play a game with 4 extra overtimes.

It's never going to happen anyways, why bother discussing it. It would be more realistic to talk about changing the overtime format to NCAA rules.

yeah at least the college overtime rules are fair to both teams. I like the college rule for overtime.

It may not be football in the purest sense or even the best form it could be. But there may be nothing as exciting as a triple OT upset game in college. Its absolutely the most fun to watch

Keep it the way it is. First of all ties almost never happen, the last one I can remember was the McNabb fiasco.

If neither team can make a play to win in OT, then they don't deserve to win. Seasons and games are hard enough to get through healthy, I really think its a bad idea to force a second OT and risk more injuries.


Don't want a tie on your record? Man up and take a shots to the endzone, if you want to play not to lose then its your own fault you got a tie.

that would be a terrible system for the nfl. the players and teams are to good. they would be able to score every time. most the time probably scoring a td. maybe if they moved it back to the 50.

You do realize that defenses are made up entirely of said players and teams ?

stopping a team from scoring from the 25 is a large order in the nfl. it would be like having the college players start at the 10.

This. I didn't even know what was going on during the game since I was at work, but when I was told that one of the late afternoon games ended in a tie, I was hoping it'd be the Eagles/Cowboys game. Laughing

i cant find one that actually shows the nfl with field goals. but with just tds you take out the top 3 and bottom three and you got a range of 66% to 40%. so around 50% of the time the average team scores a td.

college is around 80% with FGs....also couldnt find one that showed with just tds.

but literally every kicker (of the 32 on nfl.com) this year is 100 percent from 1-30 yards. only 11 were missed last year.

it also gives a large advantage to the teams that are made for the redzone. teams like detriot last year would never lose an overtime game.

I was pretty surprised when I found out the NFL had ties. It just seemd so.. ''unamerican''. Winners and losers.
