In super unexpected news, the report the NFL commissioned from someone who works for a law firm the NFL has used found that the NFL didn't see the Rice video prior to their suspension and that, really, the only fault here is that the NFL doesn't have enough power to suspend their players

One legged Rogers with a 16 point lead at the half.

Will they regret not punching it in on those red zone opportunities?

NFL Football, where playoff games are decided by a coin toss.

How would you determine possession to start OT? Should it just continue from where it left off in the 4th?

i like this idea better than the coin toss. whoever had possession at the end of regulation should get to receive the kickoff.

It's not that they determine possession with a coin toss that I have a problem with, its that both teams don't get an offensive drive. The NCAA has a better format IMO.

i could go for that too. but what happens when team A scores then B scores back then A scores again. shouldnt B also get a second drive?  why should one team be punished if both teams defense are garbage.

I don't get why they couldn't just do like the NBA does, play for a set time and play as normal, whoever has the lead by the end wins.  If not, keep going.

regulation football is already too long. plus i think that some of those linemen could possibly die if it went to a second ot.

NCAA does it like an NHL shootout, but if the teams score the same amount of points for two rounds, then teams must attempt 2 pt conversions on all touchdowns.

I just don't think sudden death works for Football.

Packers gave that game away.


Onside kick was comical. How do you f that up?
Two point convert by Seattle was comical. At first thought it looked like a failed hailmary or Wilson was just throwing the ball away.

Oh... So it shouldn't be sudden death. I'm with you on that.

Brady!!!!  Terrific Tom leads the Patriots to a rout of bad luck Andrew and the Colts, 45-7, and a berth in Super Bowl XLIX against the NFC Champions Seattle Seahawks, who stunned the Packers in OT to claim their victory.

Super Bowl XLIX will be played Sunday February 1st in Arizona.
