The NFL could legitimately make changes to its overtime rules before the start of the 2022 season.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, there's "a lot of momentum" for changing the league's overtime rules. In order for that to happen, 24 teams need to agree on it.
But first, the NFL competition committee must figure out which proposal they'll vote on.
"On a NFL competition committee call with chairman Rich McKay and others. McKay says there is a lot of momentum for changing overtime rules," Rapoport tweeted. "It’s more, which of the two proposals? And can they get 24 votes on the first crack? Possible, but a challenge."
Earlier this month, it was announced that the NFL will consider two overtime rule changes.
The Tennessee Titans, meanwhile, sent over a rule proposal that states both teams should be allowed an opportunity to posses the ball in overtime unless the team with the first possession scores a touchdown and has a successful two-point try.
