Former NFL star quarterback Drew Brees has three things that he wants the NFL to change, and one of them is the overtime rules.

The OT rules reared their ugly head again on Sunday night as the Chiefs won the game on the first possession of overtime.

They won the coin toss and Patrick Mahomes drove them down the field and hit Travis Kelce for the game-winner.

The Bills weren't allowed to touch the ball after that score. Brees thinks that the rules should be changed to where both sides get a possession or to the college rules.

Brees also thinks that the "roughing the passer" rule needs to be tweaked. He notes that it's become a game-changer which is likely due to officials not knowing how to call it.

Finally, Brees wants wide receivers to be protected from the knee down and mentions Chris Godwin. Godwin got hurt towards the end of the regular season on a low hit and blew his knee out.

The NFL's competition committee is expected to meet during the offseason and it remains to be seen if any of these ideas are implemented.
