NFL looking at new OT rules

An NFL spokesman says the league could change its overtime format for playoff games at a meeting next month.

Greg Aiello said Satuday that under the new format, both teams would get the ball at least once unless the first team to get the ball scores a touchdown.
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.
The competition committee will discuss the new concept with teams and players at league meetings March 21-24 in Orlando, Fla., when it could come to a vote. At least two thirds of the teams would need to agree to the changes for new rules to be adopted.

It is about time. I like the way college football does things, this sounds just about the same. I know the Viking threw an interception late in their playoff game, but they pretty much lost a chance to go to the Super Bowl on a coin toss. Just my 2cents.
