New OT Rules In Effect This Weekend
01/07/2011

When the NFL playoffs begin this weekend, they will feature a new rule for overtime.
If a team wins the coin toss and receives the overtime kickoff,
it does not automatically win the game if it kicks a field goal on
the opening series. The team that kicked off then gets a
possession.
If the trailing team also kicks a field goal, the game
continues. If it scores a touchdown, it wins. And if it does not
get any points, it loses.
The tweak was made last March, two months after Garrett
Hartley's field goal won the NFL championship game for New Orleans
over Minnesota on the opening series of OT.
Coaching staffs have put plenty of thought into how to deal with
the new rule.
