NFL Overtime Rules Might Change

New, comments

Thanks to our own David from SB Nation's San Francisco 49ers' blog, Niners Nation. He sent around a trio of links to stories that do not appear to be rumors about the NFL considering adopting a different set of rules for overtime in the future. It's hard to say if this will be for the regular season or just for the playoffs, at least initially, as one of the stories discussed the recent New Orleans Saints OT win over the Minnesota Vikingsn the NFC Championship Game as example.

Click on the 'Jump' for the email David sent around and the three links.

For those who missed it, the NFL is going to look at potentially modifying the sudden death rule for the playoffs. Certainly big news.
