The NFL has passed a ruling that will change the way over time is decided. In this breaking news from the NFL, the OT rules for the playoffs has been changed to potentially allow both teams to get a crack at the ball in OT.
Simply put, the new rule works like this. If the team winning the coin flip scores a TD the game is over. If they score a field goal, the other team gets one possession to score. If that team kicks a successful field goal the game will continue and the next team to score wins.
The regular season will remain under the current system of OT rules.
