The vote passed 28-4.Adam_Scheter: In May, NFL owners will discuss whether to amend the modified OT proposal to also include the regular season for 2010
They passed 28-4 to modify the OT rule in the playoffs.
The rules are as follows. (To my understanding)
If a TD is scored the game is over.
If a FG is scored, the other team will receive the ball back.
If that team then scores a TD, the game is over.
If that team does not score a TD, but instead kicks a FG, the original scoring team will receive the ball back and the next team to score (FG or TD) will prevail.
If the first team does not score on their opening possession and the other team receives the ball, a FG would win it.
The rules only apply to ensure both teams get a fair shot at defending the entire field with the hopes of receiving the ball, rather than defending a short field and giving up a FG and walking back leaving fans unsatisfied.
