Two incredible games

what's the thinking behind that rule about touchdowns in overtime ?

@ButterRobot it’s just a modified sudden death system. So if the first team who has possession in OT scores a TD then they win. If the score a field goal, other team gets a shot. If they also score a field goal, the it goes to sudden death.

It’s a horrible system. I’m sure there is a reason, but not a good one. It just sucks.

@Sharon1 it does seem overly dependent on a coin toss.

@Sharon1 The sudden death rule is for TV. The dont want to run over into their other programming. They modified overtime a little but the winner of the coin toss in over time usually wins the game.

Chiefs proposed to change NFL playoffs OT rules in 2019. The Chiefs lost to the Rams the same way the Bill's lost to the Chiefs, with their QB sitting on the bench.
