Ian Rappaport just witnessed what is probably the best playoff game he has ever seen. And he instantly went to Twitter pushing for rule changes.

He wasn't the only one complaining, that's for sure. Already seen a couple of articles this morning, and it's barely 5am here.

I'm going to guess the OT rules do get changed at least one last time. Both teams will get a possession and if it's still sited after that possession, it's sudden death again.  I can see that. Such uproar when poor Peyton or poor Farve couldn't touch the ball in overtime and watched their teams lose, so the rules got changed. Not much uproar when Matt Ryan and the Falcons didn't get their chance in the SB overtime against the Pats, because they blew a giant lead and they're the Falcons. But flash forward a couple of years, Pats get the ball first in the AFC Championship against the Chiefs, run off long touchdown drive to win it, Mahomes doesn't get a chance in OT.
Turmoil!!!!
And now this one. Yeah, I can see one more change.

One other thing, the folks upset over the OT rules not giving Josh Allen a chance: never mind that the Bills supposed top ranked defense couldn't get a stop, but would those same people be so upset if the Packers and 49ers had gone to Overtime tied at...10? No last second field goal by the Niners, we're going into extras with 10 each. Both offenses struggling, defenses in control, weather getting worse, Shoepisser.....how many people would be wishing for sudden death then?

Personally, I'm not here crying about the OT rules.  Heck... they got my Saints into the Super Bowl.

But I do believe each having a possession is reasonable.  Then of course sudden death.

It's really not the worst thing though.  I do think the field-goal-and-out they used to have in 2009 was dumb.

OT should be a shootout among FG kickers, start at 40 yards and move back 5 every time until one misses. If they both miss, then a 40-yard dash between punters decides the game.

After reflecting on the weekends games I realized the Bills fatal mistake last night. They went against the theme for the weekend, fail your way to victory.

Bengals, allow the Titans to run tackling drills on their QB, win.

49ers, have your offence try to squander your defences great performance only to get bailed out by two huge special teams plays. Win.

Rams, fumble your way to victory.

The Chiefs' defense couldn't get a stop down the stretch either, but they won without having to get one.

It was aggravating to watch the Bills play such good coverage only to not bring Mahomes down. So many plays where he had no one to throw to and he still gets a first down because no one can touch him. I know he's good, but goddamn, tackle the guy. Oh, and don't hold his receivers either. Geez.

The way an NFL game is structured, Offenses get better and defenses get worse, it takes much more physical effort  to play defense than offense, and in a game like this, against offenses like these, even the best athletes are going to be completely gassed by 4th quarter.  The defenses didn't *suck*  they were just overwhelmed by the two best offenses in the league

I'll repeat what I posted a couple weeks ago for suggestions.

A) Go back to how it used to be.  The whole 'coin flip' decides it BS was a lie from the start.  The team that won the coin toss won it LESS (48 to 52 percent).

B) Implement college rules.  (25 yard line, play until you score or turn the ball over)

C) Implement a 'shootout', similar to the NHL.  Essentially a 2-point conversion duel.  Starts out as best of 3.  If still tied after best of 3, then it's sudden death within the frame (first team scores, second team can match).  Or perhaps this only happens if still tied after 1 OT.

D) Remove the whole 'the other team only gets a possession only if FG' weirdness and just allow both teams a chance regardless of what happens (unless a safety or pick-six.  Because the other team doesn't even need a possession at that point, they're already ahead).  It already ends now on a defensive TD or safety for that reason... just don't have it end on an offensive TD.

There may even be other possibilities, but those are the full gamut of possibilities I can think of.

NFHS rules has the Texas shooter:

- Each team gets two alternative possessions (4 tries) from 10 yard line. Turnover ends a possession.
- After 2 "innings" if the game is still tied, the team that goes second must force a result (ie: if the first team scored 7, second team must go for 8)

Sgygus: After a football hour of battling, the game was decided by a coin flip.


Overtime's former "sudden death" structure and it's current "first TD wins" rules are primarily for player safety.   Playing a full hour of football is nearing the edges of human endurance for guys this big wearing this much armor.  Pushing too far past that guarantees people WILL get hurt, as exhaustion sets in and those giants start losing fine motor control.   The "first TD" thing was a welcome mod to the OT rules because it's just too easy to get in FG range when you start at the 25 and many Fg kickers can hit from 60.   Giving you an incentive to go for 7 on the first possession lets the other team employ their red zone defenses which are much more effective than their "whole field" ones and thus gives a better chance to the team that loses the flip than the old rules did.    But ultimately the goal of the OT rules is to get everyone off the filed intact and healthy and avoid ties.    In the Playoffs this has much more consequence than in the regular season, so perhaps there it could be further changed.

You idea is workable - each time gets the ball at least once, if the second TD is scored each team does 2 point conversions (from the 5 yard line) until one doesn't score.  Equal opportunity and the game will end in a reasonable amount of time (hopefully).  If not the entertainment value will be worth it.

Also:  the most amazing few minutes of football I've seen in my 70 years spinning in circles.  Better then when Coe College beat the team I was playing on (Beloit) 82-0 and they were using the first string, throwing passes only, and calling timeouts when they got 28 points in the 4th quarter.  Led to my decision to leave the team and concentrate on playing blues guitar, harmonic and singing in my blues band(s).

No.

Both teams had opportunities to win during regulation, but neither defense could secure the win in the last two minutes.

Bills take the lead with 1:54 left. The Bills defense takes their eyes off Hill and he burns them for a 60+ yard TD for the Chiefs lead.

Chiefs now have the 4 point lead with a little over a minute left. Multiple opportunities to end the game on 4th down, but they don't stop Allen from converting them and they're slow on covering the middle for the Bills TD with 15 seconds left.

Bills now have a 3 point lead with 13 seconds left. They leave the middle wide open for some reason and the Chiefs get 45 yards in two plays to get the field goal that sends it into overtime. Bills could have sealed the victory there, but they didn't.

Add to this the missed FG and XP that Butker missed. He converts one or both and the Chiefs win the game in regulation and no overtime.

If you don't want your fate to be determined by a coin flip, do your damned job.

/*It didn't help that someone called for it to be sent into the end zone on that 0:13 kickoff rather than dropping it at the ten to burn some time.

Why doesn't that apply to the Chiefs defense, which also didn't do its job?

Because KC's offense did theirs.


I'll add, though the KC Defense wasn't as good as the Bills, which I freely admit, they were certainly better than some the Bill's faced so far.  At least well enough to force a punt anyways.   More than one?  I don't know, it's all a manic blur this morning.

I'm also betting they would have done better had Mathieu not gone out early.  But, that's what happened, and you have to play the hand you're dealt.

Instead of fighting about the rules can we just take a moment to realize the true victory was the friends each team made along the way.

/didn't see the second half because of hockey but caught the highlights.

Allen's response after the game is the one that really matters "I'm not mad, if it were the other way around, we would be celebrating".
Take the L with a little dignity and move on.

Losing Mathieu hurt the Chiefs defense. He does a much better job at covering the middle and making sure everyone knows their assignments. I think that if he were there, some of those TD passes in the last two minutes are much more difficult for Allen to make.

Tyreek Hill should have gotten a flag for taunting. It's stupid rule but it's on the books

Or the Bills defense allowing the Chiefs to get into FG range with 13 seconds left to send it to O/T.
And that.

So did the Bills' offense.


Yeah, they did, more or less. But since their defense didn't, the whole team lost.

"B-b-but I tried really hard!" doesn't win Lombardies. When your entire season is on the line...

I really enjoyed the game.  I had no cheering interest to speak of.  Just enjoyed the heck out of it.  My mother, who is from KC, was not in great shape for a large portion of the end.
