As everyone expected, the first time the NFL's new overtime rule (previously used only in the playoffs) resulted in a more exciting overtime, it would be voted in to use in the regular season. Now that it's official, get used to these rules for every NFL game:
- Each team gets at least 1 possession, unless the team that has the ball first scores a touchdown.
- If they think they scored and the officials did not see it that way during the live play.
- If either coach thinks the spot of the ball (and whether or not it should result in a first down) is wrong.
