The NFL owners meetings are currently being conducted in Boca Raton, Florida and there is a lot of teams to sift through.
Owners unanimously approved the agreement for the Buffalo Bills new stadium, which was struck Monday morning between the Bills, Erie County and New York State.
It will be an open-air stadium in Orchard Park and the expected opening will be for the 2026 season.
While the Bills new stadium was a topic at hand, so were potential rule changes; particularly, the overtime rule change.
This all is sparked by what happened to Josh Allen and the Bills in the AFC Divisional round against the Kansas City Chiefs. Allen played about as perfect a game as a quarterback could have (the whole postseason, really), yet he lost the coin toss and did not get a chance to possess the ball in overtime.
The NFL’s current overtime rules state that if the team who possesses the ball first scores a touchdown, the game ends. It continues until the next score if that team either punts or kicks a field goal.
There’s more support than ever for the rule to change to allow both teams to get one possession on offense, and Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay is a proponent of change.
McVay says that Allen deserved a shot at the ball, which is music to Bills fans’ ears.
It’s archaic that a coin toss decides a playoff game in the NFL. Yes, defense is part of your team, but in today’s NFL the advantages overwhelmingly favor the offense. It protects quarterbacks like crazy. Wide receivers get free range to do whatever they wish, and the NFL predicates itself on being offense driven.
Not only that, but by overtime, defenses are more tired and in the postseason, the offenses are all good and are there because of their success rate.
It’s time to end the current overtime format.
