Minnesota and Green Bay just tied and as you know, I ******* hate ties.
Standard overtime doesn’t assure a resolution and some people don’t like the college football format.
So instead, lets adopt an “in game” tie breaking format.
Overtime would be abolished Games would end at the end of regulation, regardless of score.
If the score is tied at the end of regulation, the NFL would go to tie breakers to determine the victor.
Most touchdowns. Since most score numbers can be obtained by a large number of methods, (touchdowns, extra points, two point conversions, field goals and safeties) a premium would be put on most touchdowns as the first tie breaker.
Most earned first downs, not due to penalties.
Most first downs, regardless of how achieved.
Most yardage gained, regardless of whether gained on offense, defensive takeaways or special teams.
Total time of possession.
And if all that fails to resolve the situation (though it would be implausible).
- Flip the coin.
I am ******* DONE with ties. The NFL should ban them, by ANY means necessary.
