    Not sure... But if a safety can end the game on the first possession of OT, seems like a pick 6 should end it too.

    Looks like we won't see someone win on a coin toss anymore in the playoffs to me though... So I give my meaningless thumbs up

    (€dit: the tweet link is broken somehow... So I just added a picture... Even a regular link seems not to work. But whatever. You get the idea. )

    I would think that any defensive score or a score after a turnover would win the game for the team that kicked off first in over time. At that point both teams have had their opportunity to possess the ball and the score is no longer tied.

      That's exactly what I thought about it... That's why I found it strange the way they chose to just say a safety. Should say a defensive score.

    One time I wish they would change is the fumble out of the end zone. So a guy stretches out at the 2 yard line trying to break the plane of the goal, fumbles with no recovery and the defense gets it???

    Thank God the playoff game with Champ Bailey didn’t come down to that stupid rule.

      Why can't the NFL just figure this thing out? Why is it so hard?

      You still have a significant built in advantage for the coin flip winner. Play it out drive against drive until a winner is decided on the field.

      Now if you're the flip loser and you score corresponding TDs (as was likely in Chiefs v Bills) can you just go for two and end it?

        I think the first team the score should win in overtime. It's called sudden death

          Sudden death worked until the NFL decided to implement rules allowing offenses to produce more scoring and stack up fantasy points. Pre-2005ish, I'd be opposed to the proposed change. Not anymore, It's a totally different game these days.

            The random coin flip shouldn't be so important. It's like a big play just happened the way the chiefs players celebrated winning it. Allen and Mahomes were going back and forth, and a coin flip stopped Allen.

              Why can’t they just play another quarter or reduced quarter, in the spirit of every other overtime in pro sports.

                Not that it matters, but I’m fine with this new rule in the playoffs. The KC/Buffalo game was proof that a coin toss decided which team won. FKC!

                  what does it matter when the refs will just throw holding calls on game winning plays

                  sport is rigged anyways.

                    Agreed, just have one 7:30 quarter (half a regular quarter). Coin toss essentially becomes moot. The teams have to go for 2 point conversions on every TD, this will essentially eliminate another tie at the end of OT. If neither team scores a TD, or if the score is still tied at the end of OT, then go to sudden death. Toss the coin again and play by the 2021 rules.

                      It's the playoffs.....have homefield mean something. NO COIN TOSS. you played a grueling regular season to get to host a playoff game against what is going to be a tough, playoff caliber oponent and you are letting OT come to a 50/50 coin toss? Bullmess! ....home team gets the ball. Sudden death.

                        Be careful, KC likely ti be visiting WC from now on.

                          This isn't about KC.....it's about how it should be. If you are home it should count for more than it does now.

                            The argument against that (probably lead by the NFLPA) is that football is a very violent sport, when players fatigue they are at an elevated risk for injury.

                              I am fine with guaranteeing a possession each then reverting to college rules. You get a chance to win in OT the normal way and if that fails start forcing it.

                                Homefield has tons of inherent advantages. Crowd noise which by itself can win games. No travel. No time change. Regular routine. Your idea is nuts. In this current age of football where almost everything benefits the offense, your idea makes OT pointless. Home team will win probably 95% of the time. Even the current rule makes more sense than your idea.

                                You act as if there is no benefit to being the home team, so it should instead by granted an almost certain victory if the game is tied at the end.. just silly.

                                  Not silly. Let’s just say, even in the case of thx new rule….why the coin flip? You played a, long hard regular season to be at home and your season comes down to the 50/50 luck of a coin toss?

                                    She actually beat me to what she explained. The home team already has many advantages. You may deny it, but you seem to be repeating your dream KC scenario against the Bills. Guess what? You guys still lost against the Bungles.

                                      KC won the coin toss vs the Bills. There shouldn’t have been a coin toss.

                                      1. The Bills 1st ranked defense had every chance to win the game and couldn’t.

                                      2. The Bills could have……you know…..maybe not lost to the Jags 9-6 in the regular season and been at home.

                                        I knew you were stuck on the Bills game.

                                          My thoughts on this have nothing to do with that game.

                                              Right, it’s never going to be perfect.
