When the NFL holds its spring meeting today in Dallas, the 2014 Super Bowl will be awarded to New York, South Florida or Tampa Bay. But the league also will discuss changing the overtime rules for the regular season, having changed them for the playoffs.

  2. Zach says:

    I agree that if it is good for the playoffs you need to do it all season long. Why have separate rules depending on the time of year? I still think that new rule isn’t the best plan, but it’s a hell of an improvement.

    1. Adam says:

      I like the change but your theory is flawed. Look at hockey…they have rule changes from regular season to post season.
