But only for the playoffs, at least for now.
Under the new format, both teams would get the ball at least once unless the first team to get the ball scores a touchdown, Greg Aiello said. If the first team to get the ball makes a field goal and the other team ties the game, action would continue until a team scores again.
Under the current rules, the first team to score wins.
“There have been various concepts that have been discussed in recent years, but this one has never been proposed,” Aiello said.
I confess, I rather like the NCAA’s way of breaking ties. But this is better than what the NFL is doing now, which leaves teams too dependent on the coin toss. I say give it a try and see how it goes, and be willing to do the same thing in the regular season. What do you think?
