NFL owners will vote this week for a proposal to change overtime by ensuring that each team has possession, but the League has not paid much attention to the more radical offer to accept overtime in style college.
This is what the Alliance of American Football does, and on Sunday night, the AAF game went overtime for the first time.
In AAF, the teams replace the first and second goal of the 10 yard line. Each team receives an attempt to score a touchdown, no goals in the field are allowed, and the point team can experience only two points because AAF has no extra points.
On Sunday evening Birmingham came out four-on-first overtime, and Memphis then won the touchdown pass game. This is a fun end to a good game.
Variable overtime ownership, used in high school, college, Canadian football and AAF, has not gained much traction with NFL, but the league has to look at it. He makes exciting endings.
