The Buffalo Bills confirmed on Tuesday that they have proposed an overtime rules change for the postseason after their horrific loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Divisional Round.
Bills general manager Brandon Beane said Tuesday their proposal would be based on a time element rather than scoring.
“Ours is going to be more instead of one possession, and then you get the other possession, is a time, similar to in basketball, you play five minutes,” via The Associated Press. “Baseball, both teams get the top half and the bottom half (of an inning). So a time limit, and I’m talking about postseason only. That way, both teams will definitely have a chance and maybe even more than one possession.”
Under current rules, if the opening possession of OT results in a touchdown or a defensive score, the game is over.
The Indianapolis Colts have also proposed an overtime rules change.
