New NFL Rule

Finally an overtime to look forward to. This past Tuesday, March 23, 2010 the league voted to change the overtime rules. In the past, it was sudden death. Coin toss, first team to score wins. Now, there will be a coin toss, and the team with the first possession in overtime would have to score a touchdown to end the game. But if they only manage a field goal then the opposing team will get a chance to end the game by scoring a touchdown.
If both teams score field goals on their first possession, or fail to score, then classic sudden-death rules would come into effect, with the next team to score winning the game.
