In overtime, a period will begin with a coin toss which will determine which team will have possession of the ball. Then the team has 10 minutes to try and score a touchdown. The first team to score wins the game.
Like David, many fans pointed out how unfairly the overtime rules benefit the team that wins the coin toss. People want the NFL to include a rule that would allow for the opposing team to answer the winning team's touchdown.
This needs to be said, the overtime rule in the NFL is the stupidest rule in all of sports. The worst. The fact that the other team doesn\u2019t have a chance to rebuttal because of a coin toss, after all that work to force OT. So so stupid
