NFL Overtime Rules Change: Are Fans Ready For More NFL Ties In 2017?
NFL overtime rules changes are coming if the league’s competition committee gets its way. After fan complaints that games were taking too long to complete their overtime periods, the league may be ready to overreact. Much like Major League Baseball undertook ideas to speed up the pace of the game, the National Football League is about to try the same thing. A rule that the competition committee is presenting would shorten overtime periods and seek to bring game results to the public even faster.
